You could not be filled with hate and be beautiful. Like any girl, I wanted to be beautiful. But I was filled with hate.
quote taken from Lucky, written by Alice Sebold
Below is a poem I wrote based on my feelings about this quote.
Once a beautiful dreamer
Now so scarred and bruised
You can see the creases and the
Scars you permanently left on my
Once nave inner complexion.
You once made me feel more
Beautiful than I ever knew was
Possible, outside of the fantasy
World we all try and escape to.
Without that fantasy, I face
What is sad but true
The fact that when Id fallen
I was left with everything but
You dont fill that space anymore
In this heart that is so broken and torn
As time passed, the hatred took over
And entered every empty crevice
That could not stay void for long.
As I progress I see now
I may never again feel beautiful
As beautiful as I once did,
Because hatred has killed my soul
As I cry my tears of
Sharp, cutting, shattered words
You once spoke and I never
Had learned to accept
Just leave me here to realize
What I have or will become
Not the girl you had once loved
Not the girl you once called gorgeous
But once again another fallen star
Consumed with the hatred
For the boy she had lost
Sight of all dreams
In the hopes that you might have
Taught me how to love again
We couldve moved passed the
Over-dramatic lies of what was said
To be unforgivable.
I dont want to be that girl,
But boy, realize I am who I am.
Its become too late when you
Uttered the words that determined
A dreadful ending.
We can try and pursue
What everyone was hoping for
I can try to get to you
If that was what I felt
I had truly wanted
But the memories of so long ago
Has been engraved into my mind
Some things you can
Try to forgive
But I will never forget.
