Don't go a day being with someone that you CAN live without.


I feel like an alluring iridescent gem
Among callous thieves,
Yet,
I feel like a weightless shadow
Among a moonless midnights’ trees.


They all gaze at me with shallow consuming eyes,
Loving sightlessly, they deify me,
But,
Will they ever really see,
The ugliness that I have turned out to be?
