Beauty and Tragedy

Written by: karly hasselbach

I can't be with you, you see.
Our fairytale wasn't meant to be.
I will let you go and let you be free.
Because you are the beauty,
And I am just the tragedy.

I ran away, so far away from this.
It started from that night and faithful kiss.
Believe me I felt so much bliss.
I think of you as I clench my fist.
But I'm long gone and you I'll miss.

I don't deserve you, that much I can see.
So I'll leave now and get off you property.
Please, I beg you, don't come after me.
Because you are the beauty,
And I am just the tragedy.

I know what your thinking as you read on and on in this.
"These faults of yours aren't true," as you go through the list.
You smile as you read the part about our kiss.
I think of you as I clench my fist.
But I'm long gone and you I'll miss.

We're finally getting to the end of our story.
You'll find that it's what you can't see.
It's a part of me, a memory.
Because you are the beauty,
And I'm just the tragedy.
