Loves Beauty Fades

Written by: Tracie Edwards

~*~ Alluring veil of ebony lace slumbering silently, masking tired eyes Confiscating vehemently every tear she cries Words whispered from a forked tongue gasping for a breath of disgrace Jealousy of ghost past nothing left, but to hide her face Lies rip into the pages of her book promises broken, left in dismay The hues of pretty photographs fade subtley away Camouflaged love, encase in your denial and envy bitterness surging through every vein Damaged now, defective she'll never be beautiful again. ~*~
