"The death of a beautiful woman, is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world."

-Edgar Allan Poe

As I sit there watching you cry, I feel my heart begin to sink.
Oh how my heart aches at such beauty's sorrow!
With every tear rolling down your cheek, I feel my heart beat.
Every second of your distress, Became hours of my Grotesque Sadness.
Inside I begin to cry.
To cry at the site of such beauty so upset is too natural for me.
Why is such a Beauty crying?
Why do you cry Beautiful?
Finally looking up at me, you wonder to yourself Who are you and what do you need?
But the truth is, the only thing I ever wanted is to see you feel unhurt or unpleased.
To see the smiling face that beauty owns, would bring happiness and no sadness to my bones.
I stare into your eyes smiling , hoping for a wonder.
Yet I do wonder...those eyes which I look at so covered in shame,
hidden by tears of sadness never to be the same.
And as you try not to laugh, I begin to hear a giggle amongst our path.
As the Bell rings for our last day of class, I knew that this would never pass.
For when we began to stand, You embarrass me tightly.
A hug so tight, even the shallow become deep.
My words, my mind....not even a peep.
Such joy, such happiness all to feel, at that one moment I felt happy.
I found purity, and serenity in your heart, I almost felt sad for us having to part.
And now I ask of you to cry, only in front of me.
So that every time you do, I can be there with you.
And so, no matter what you may gain, I just hope that you will never regain...your Beauty's pain.
