True Beauty

Tue, 09/12/2017 - 20:35 -- Eviek4

Sanity reaches out her hand 

To stop the unstoppable comet,

Singed flesh to show

For the one she saved. 

 

She was damaged 

But she was whole. 

 

Is there only happiness 

For those oblivious to

The comet's fate? 

 

Letting it fall, 

Your beautiful skin remains. 

But can you know beauty without destruction? 

 

I'll burn you until 

I can breathe

And I'll fall until 

I can no longer.

This poem is about: 
Me
