I'm Done

I'm giving up on beauty
a fabrication of something that isn't
an imaginary reality of another world
someplace far from where I used to be
the disgust in my veins is powerful
blackening out all the light from the sun
sucking the life from everything around me
let it come
comfort found in misery
let the blood flow freely
oil and ick in a waterfall
my passing will be a blessing
fresh air to those I have touched
their lives once more drenched in serenity

beauty returns after my ashes cool
