    You tell me that I'm beautiful
    I'm talented
    I'm special?
    But through all the compliments
    I'm still starving
    without work
    and without food
    blaming that horrible thing called money
    I'm tired of feeling useless
    do my talents amount to nothing?
    you might call me an elegant mess
    a damsel in distress
    listening to the violins in my head
    while the hole in my stomach grows
    You might want to help me
    But I'll always tell you NO
    Can't you see I just want work?
    stress clouds my judgment
    stifles my creativity
    chokes my drive
    stress leads to depression
    I'm just trying to survive
    Don't look now
    the walls are closing in
    rent is due again
    I thought you were my friend!
    This is were you cancel on me
    the light is doused
    and I forget to breathe
    You told me I was special
    that I'm gorgeous
    I deserve to be free?

    So why is it that you don't want to see me succeed?

      i would cut the last two lines, ending with rhetorical questions takes away from the poem. i feel like if you just ended with "you told me that i was special, that I'm gorgeous" would be much more powerful. The ideas are all there i think there is a lot of potential and with some polishing could be a really moving piece
