Burn The Beauty

©

Published: July 2008

One does not own beauty.
One creates it.
In their dreams,
They feel they can obtain it.

All alone, in a dark night's
rest.
All their thoughts...
Lifeless.

Cursed by change
Hidden by lies,
Running from the truth.
Beauty now dies.

They don't understand.
They don't really care.
Beauty now burns
Smoke in the air.

Years go by,
And age seeps in.
Beauty's worn out,
Life is giving in.

Death creeps up,
Beauty now cries.
You're all alone
In your beautiful lies!

This is magnificent! Ever word is placed perfectly in place, and it's just so hauntingly beautiful! But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as cliche as it sounds. But what defines beauty is all up to whoever's asking. Don't be put down if you compare yourself to another, because it's those differences that makes us beautiful. Or at least to me. I find the beauty in everyone: big, skinny, rude, quiet, young, old... Etc. As we age, it doesn't mean our beauty is withering away. It just means that we're exposed to a whole new kind of beauty. Awesome poem, loved it! ?
