Beautiful Girls Ain't Got Nothin on Me

Beautiful Girls!

The world turns

around to take

another look at you


You could take

a dead man's

breath away

with the wink

of a gorgeous eye


You can be cruel

We will all forgive you

You are more powerful

than thousand tyrants


But remember darling,

the world will only

give itself to Beauty;

You have been

blessed only as

its ephemeral vessel


What will you do when you cease

to hypnotize those millions of eyes?

What will you have for yourself

when Beauty dies, leaving you old

alone in the world and shivering cold?


Should you have let your

own reflection corrupt

the nature of your humanity,

Should you ignore your soul

in favor of malicious games

played with helpless hearts,


You will die a death

of decadent worthlessness.

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
