Melancholic Vanity

Is it painful,

to see that face waste away.

Still white and fresh,

yet the realisation of self-loathing has set in,

take it down, but bring it back up.

Is it painful,

to see that body waste away.

Still full and beautiful. But only to others.

Rip away at torn skin, until you find your true self.

The End
