beauty is never enough

I looked at her

lived with for a while

thought it was love

time passed pushed all that

apart flat

I had grown colder

had gotten over

her beauty

wanted to get out

fast as I could

& she felt rejected

could not understand

was her beauty not enough?

up until then she

had always been the one

to say goodbye

& was moving on

there was something wrong with me

didn’t I understand?

this is not how things had to be

but I’d mourned for her

the who I had thought she was

while living with yet growing apart

& I know I hurt her

more than her heart

wrenched her head in a new way

which I had not foreseen

or intended to do

& for that

she vowed to make me hurt

beauty will do that

when it feels crushed

will make you pay
