Beautiful woman, amazed by her ugliness, amplified by the hateful, jealous shades of blackness, gnawing at the core of the light in her gaze

Beautiful woman, taken for a ride time again, only to be thrown out like paper wrappers in the sand

 

Left to rot with road kill on the pavement of her memory’s lane, bloodstained and rocky, slickened by puddles of polluted tears wasted on life…

 

Beautiful woman, amazed by her folly, an inability to grow up and out of her borrowed shoes, worn by many bad girls before with their stories revised by the changing of names

 

Beautiful woman, disillusioned in the aftermath of summer’s sweet dreams, used to reach out to the stars—now she covers her heart

 

Learned all her lessons through firsthand account, this beautiful woman, never listened too well

 

Reflected regrets cloud her jaded, dark eyes; she opens her mouth, can speak nothing but lies

 

Beautiful woman, has a pitiful laugh…

 

Beautiful woman…her time has long passed…
