The Price of Such Beauty is Pain

The Price of Such Beauty is Pain

A Poem by Watch Me Scream

Sometimes to know beauty, you have to know pain


Clouds, a cloud: Hear me as I speak aloud

Though I've got not much more to say

Got so much on my mind with so little time

But rejoice for this feeling shall stay


Choices, a choice: To find and use your voice

Search the right words with which to speak

To convey your message to all thats near

And guide you towards what you seek


Saviours, a saviour: To do one last favor

Burn all of your demons alive

Discover what's good deep inside

And vanquish that on which they thrive


Shouts, a shout: What it's all about

A way you can vocalize pain

Or anger or fear or all of the above

Without nasty scars 'long a vein


Sings, a song: And we all sing along

A tune we all once knew so well

Violence and wreckage distraught by peace

And Heaven defined by Hell


Think, a thought: With all you've got

Grab a pen and write it down quick

If I don't get it down: This beaty I found

I think I just might be sick


Tears, a tear: One for each fear

For once not embodied by stress

Or sadness, despair, lack of strength

But the joy of not having to guess


Lose, a loss: Like a dime you toss

You've broke free of the sickness' grip

You are finally free and here with me

Take my hand and you shall not slip.


Clutches, a clutch: Grips reality too much

And faith has gone straight to waste

If you shall loosen your hold, believe once again

Then sweetness is all you shall taste.

This I really enjoyed your repartition is I think what makes the poem the very readable piece that it is. I know that I couldn't wait to get to the next verse and the next and the next. well you get the idea.
Keep writing you are very good at this!

Hi everybody! It's just little old me, from Cali I'm a teenage girl, and I love to write and read. Without writing I would have gone insane a long time ago, and without reading I would be so lonesome.. more..
