Ashes

Pretty words used
To mask ugly scars
Pretty smiles used
To hide ugly cries

That’s how you want it, right?
A pretty girl to cloak your ugly side?

She’ll dazzle in divine acts
And fall apart in quiet rooms

You stack your freshly chopped wood
And beautify the scene for burning
And watch her soul burst into magnificent flames
Just bright enough so you’ll be blind when she’s ashes
