Reach out for me

Do not recoil

Or act as if the thought of touching me

Causes you dismay

Come close and realize

That what you took as a lack of beauty

Is only an illusion

A mask

Made of broken trusts

Do not cringe as I slide closer

I am no freak creation of nature

The shadow that cloaks me

Is simply born of weariness

Let your light shine

Into the crevices of my soul

And see the beauty that lies

Deep within my tattered heart

Etched by a past

That you were no party to

One thought on “Beauty

What are you thinking?
