there would have been beautyMature

i wrote this one for you.

there would have been beauty

verse 1
a cracked mirror, covered in blood
shards of heart soaked in hate
tufts of hair strewn on the floor
the daily habit, as of late
make-up dusting all her clothes
witness to all her paint
on a canvas she knows too well
the canvas of her hated face

chorus
where there would have been love, there is now only loathing
where there would have been life, there is death
where there would have been faith, there is now only doubting
where there would have been beauty, there is nothing left

verse 2
but now, her lips are covered in vomit
her eyes are vacant and tired
her feet have long since tired of dancing
in metaphorical fire

chorus
where there would have been love, there is now only loathing
where there would have been life, there is death
where there would have been faith, there is now only doubting
where there would have been beauty, there is nothing left

bridge
once there was joy
now there is pain
once there was sun
now there is rain
once there was courage
now there is fear
once there was belief
now there is only the mirror

chorus
where there would have been love, there is now only loathing
where there would have been life, there is death
where there would have been faith, there is now only doubting
where there would have been beauty, there is nothing left 

ending
in the future, a vision i see
once there was nothing, now there is beauty 

The End
