Blemishes of any and all kinds devour me.
Pimples, scabs, scars and sores
Cover my face and the blades of my shoulders.

I am disgustingly hideous.

My hair is a greasy, tangled mess,
I've gnawed my fingernails ragged.
He always said to "Stay beautiful and keep it ugly."

I thought I was living by what he said.

But when I met her, I learned the phrase's true meaning.

And truly living by it now, a smile graces my face.
Because I found her.
Because she is the light in my darkest of times.

Looking at myself now, I wouldn't care what I looked like,
I would gladly give up whatever little physical beauty I may have,
Just to be with her and show her I love her.

Together we can create our own beauty.
In art, music, literature and love.
Looks will never matter
As long as we stay beautiful and caring on the inside.
Just a little drabble I wrote a day or two ago. (Maybe three. I'm not too sure. :P)

I've noticed almost all of my poems have a certain "path" about them, for lack of a better term. They are always in first person, and they're basically all about the same thing. ^^; I'm sorry if it bores you that I basically write the same thing every time, but in my eyes, it just shows how strongly I feel about someone and how much they have helped me. :heart:

And if any of you really know me, you'll instantly know where I got the "Stay Beautiful, Keep it Ugly" quote from. :icongerardwayplz3:

This looks a lot like my past self.
Then I learned that society keeps on making up silly standards of what should be beautiful and what shouldn't... So I ended up not only being more comfortable with myself, but being able to see beauty in others :> ❤

This is the most accurate description of my relationship with MY girlfriend- ;w;

I have acne all OVER me- My face, my shoulders, chest, back, and even my thighs-
My face is ALWAYS greasy, no matter how many times I wash it-
But- My girlfriend will always see me as beautiful, and I see her the same way ;w; <3

This is just- So beautiful ;w;

I'm sure you're right. It's just kind of nice to know, y'know? :) Everyone gets acne; some people just get it more and for longer, like me. ^^; I've had the same pimples in the same places for EVER, and no matter what I do, they won't go away. :iconheaddeskplz:

It was my pleasure~ :bow: And uh, if you want you could look at some other stuff I have like this in my gallery...Only if you want to, though. :iconshy--plz:

Mhm~ c:
I have the same problem- I do my best to wash my face/shoulders/back as many times as I can, but I never see any signs of clearing away my acne- At one point I was tempted to go get a tan, but I remembered how being in sun rays too long can give you skin cancer...

And- Okay, I'll try to when I get the time c':
