beautiful ugly

she looks at me

with blank eyes

they broke my heart

i know how they stare

sadden me

and when she saw herself

in my reflection

i could feel her pain

soothing away in me

as her beauty defines

oh how indeed,

with blankest stares right at me

i knew she needed love

she needed confidence

even through eyes

upon hourglass mirrors

she linger there, looking at herself

i told her she can't be too ugly

she's not ugly

no, no dear

she can't be

she's so beautiful.....

so beautiful
