A Beauty In Me

A Beauty In Me

A Poem by GreenEyedPoet
"

Written 3/25/15 All you ever see... Is a beauty in me.

"
I come to you
And your words are like knives
They cut me open
I completely unravel in your presence
I'm exposed here
(I can't hide behind the facade anymore)
You saw every piece of me
I was tattered and torn
Worn out
And my heart grew weak
But you never seemed to notice
The many tiny broken pieces of me
All you ever saw
Was a beauty in me
I felt like a rag doll
Standing there in front of you
Patches missing
Here and there
Falling apart at the seams
But now
Those same words
That cut me open before
(Exposing me for what I truly am)
Are now the same words
That helped replace every missing patch
And have sewn every torn seam
Because all you ever see
Is a beauty in me
(End)

Life can take from us. Piece by piece. We need someone to accept where we fall and show us concern and kindness. Thank you for sharing all the amazing poetry. I needed good poetry tonight. You were my muse tonight.
