Scrape-Deep Beautiful

Scrape-Deep Beautiful

A Poem by trainwreck
"

If you know who this is about, you'll know.

"
Close your eyes; 
See if you're blinking,
Winking over the bright,
Shiny white lights. 
Can you see them shine? 
You're like the sun,
Only brighter. 
I thought we were almost done, 
But I was born to be a fighter.
I'm alive, and you made me lighter. 
Can I shine just a shade brighter? 
I want to be your favorite.
I want to be the best mistake 
You've ever made. 
Darling, I want to be great. 
Remember my beautiful face
And how you made it break? 
How I used to (used to?) shake? 
I still find myself shivering now and then.
I've learned how to shatter, 
And how to pretend. 
Actresses? We're good at what we do. 
I'm unrehearsed, but here's a show
Just. For. You. 
You and I will write a symphony, 
In which I will steal the sympathy 
Of everyone, even your wife. 
You want more? Go ahead. 
Take my life. 
I don't need to smile.
I've never needed to see. 
It may sound like effort, 
But I still believe.

Amazing moving and deep piece. I am curious, I'm not sure if this was written with a little bit of rage, or just complete sweetness.
Either way, I liked this alot. Well done
