Unreachable Beauty

This is my struggle; this is my defeat

Craving to be beautiful;

Yet imperfections shackle my feet


Porcelain skin; white as snow

Stony eyes reflect my soul

These smiles are tears costumed for show


Colorblind life; world of apathy

Screaming in the silence

Yet no one seems to notice me


I'm not fine, but I'm still lying

'Cause I'll stand tall behind a mask

Just to keep these hopes from dying


It doesn’t matter; I don’t suffice

And though I try to be perfect

My heart will pay the final price


And now these fragile walls are breaking

Slowly falling piece by piece

My sanity for the taking


And as my heart lies in misery

I'll sink below as darkness calls

With happiness just a memory
