They say I’m beautiful
Because of the way my crystalline heart reflects light off its fractured surface
Well, that isn't a reflection
It’s rejection of the light because it’s all too much to handle
Throw myself away into the dark without even a candle
‘Cause I don’t want to recognize all the pain I’m in
Or realize the truth behind what I am or who I've been
And I tried to make things right but I just keep on making wrong
I never listened to the angel on my shoulder when she called
I count my tears like they’re experience
And my scars like they’re mysterious
And that’s a feeling I’ll remember –
Watching as you left
Watching as you ended what was meant to be forever
And I can see it in their eyes; everyone can empathize
So they say that I’m beautiful because they don’t know what else to say.
But if being broken is beautiful, then it’s the ugliest way...
your beautiful, as is this poem
especially to me
This is all absolutely perfect, even down to the rhyming. It starts out feeling like it's going to be cliche, and I suppose it kind of is with the word choice...but it's just so well done. Very heartfelt and relatable. And perfect, if I forgot to mention that part.
I can't help but smile after reading this. not to be redundant, but it's a beautiful poem
If none of us were broken, no one would be beautiful because we would all be the same. Beautiful poem by the way! (:
It is the flaws, and the cracks, and the lessons we learn for pain that make us beautiful. Those of us that are broken yet still go on are beautiful for it. Well done. Very well done.
I really enjoyed the rhyming scheme of this, this is a product of someone with pure talent! Way to go!
your style of writing is incredibly inspiring
Are you reading my mind. This story you've told sounds just like mine.
Not the word of course but nature of it. How do you cope with the shit
I cannot get over the ending. Being broken is the ugliest way to be beautiful . . . Wow. This is a very heart-felt piece. Well done
I love this - the ending and also "it isn't a reflection, it's rejection" - excellent play on words.
I'm probably going to think about this every time someone tells me I'm beautiful. Anyway I like it :3 and it feels like you've been gone forever
Yeah, I've been gone for a while. Trying to start up a new life and all.
It's amazing how long did it take
I love it!! You are awesome!!!
I love the rhythm of this, and the ideas in it are very interesting. Well done
This is sad but beautiful.
Awww that so cute great job
