“You’re beautiful”,
He told me,
And I buried my face into his neck,
Smiling, content.

“You’re beautiful”,
He stated, as I sighed,
And dropped back the jeans,
That didn’t fit me anymore.

“You’re beautiful”,
He panted, his lips on mine,
And his hands,
All over me.
“You’re beautiful”,
He crooned, kneeling beside me,
The tears stinging the fresh gashes,
He’d made on my skin.

“You were beautiful”,
He waves his hand in the air,
And I stare at it,
Longing for it to caress me.

He was beautiful,
With his lopsided smiles,
And blood dried under his nails,
And his promises of keeping me around,
And loving me,
The way he loved beauty.
