I Am Not Beautiful

You say that I am beautiful
That when you see a smile upon my face
The knot in your chest loosens just enough for you to breathe
That the sound of my laughter can be worn like armor
To get you through the day
You say life would lose meaning without me to brighten it
That the light in my eyes keeps the darkness at bay
You say that I am beautiful
But I am not beautiful
I am a liar
I will break your heart
I will never be overcome by the beauty of your laughter
Or the sound of your hello
I’ll never find myself unable to breathe from the pain of missing you
And there isn’t enough light in the world to keep my darkness away
I am not beautiful
