Goodbye, Beauty

Goodbye to you, beauty.
You are no longer my cherished companion.
I know you’ve been a good friend to me,
From the first bloom to the plucking…

˜

Farewell, my reliable friend.
You’ve been my constant shield.
When the world was set to hate me,
Your visage, you cast to protect me.

˜

I reminisce of the times we were unstoppable
Men and women swept off their feet,
Seemingly surrendering to defeat…
All because you only show your face,
And manifest undeniable grace.

˜

You’ve landed me my knight
Onto the real world, we took flight.
It was you who lured him.
Into a room, so dim…

˜

Goodbye now, beauty,
For I can no longer wear you.
My face has grotesquely grown,
From chasing time from dusk to dawn

˜

I shall submit to time’s swaying…
Yield this shell that’s expiring…
For though I long to covet beauty,
This body, worn & torn, betrays me.
