Barfing up Beauty



People scribble about beauty
But they don't speak about it right
Beauty is the dark
That makes the light look nice
Beauty is the pain
Written from under a pen
Beauty is climbing your way out
From the deepest of dens
With dirt on your face
And dark blotches of bruises
Beauty makes smiles and laughs
Look plain and stupid
Beauty is blinding yourself
So you can trip over art
With a winding head
And not knowing how to start
Beauty is erasing everything
that people thought was moral
Just so you can prove
That Your even more
less than normal
Beauty is the lowest
darkest shade
of grey
My beauty gets darker
It Gets darker to this day
