Beautiful pain.

Sitting in stoned silence,
wiping away tears of solitude.
heaving with claustrophobia,
she seemed beautiful, nonetheless.
A picture of pain..
deeply etched, in firm secrecy.
She would not cry.
Silently ignoring the stares,
she seemed oblivious to it all.
Beautiful, nonetheless.
I ached to know her,
to feel her silent agony.
Suddenly she shivers,
It seems as if she has woken up at last,
from the dreamy abeyance that had captured her this long
She slowly slips away,
as unassuming as she was.
She was beautiful, nonetheless.

Silent sufferer in the pangs of separation, expressing the helpless in a very feminine way. The pearls from the eyes, for the lost love, lost to the world and to him.

This reminds me of a certain someone. It's stark and staring right into my face.

@AS Maybe, the pearls from the eye are for a lost love or to beat the pangs of loneliness.

@Blasphemous Aesthete And she will be loved, aah! Maroon 5, yes. Awesome song. But why the mention? And the blog title, I just cooked it up. thanks =P
