84 (who?)
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...
Hey, you. 

Yeah, you. 

You're beautiful.

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. :heart:

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.
