Faces of Snow
He sees only her ephemeral beauty
adoring her sweet smile, and still
love trumps a powdered world--
where a mind is darker than a pill
ugly girls weep under faces of snow
like stars wrapped in artificial light
narrated by an eternal hazy shadow
laughing to keep out winter's fright.
I wish it were easier-- I have to confess
to be as sugary and white as frosting on a cake.
to be unblemished by this absurd madness
For from this sleep, I'd never have to wake.
And if I had this wonderful dream,
I'd sell my soul for all the powder and cream,
Yet that is no life for the soulful dreamer,
you'll find yourself alone down there.
Deep down I am crying, and falling apart
Deep down a broken mind, a winter's heart
Yet the colors of life surely could free
In this insane world, an ugly girl like me.
