Grace and Disgrace

The distant darkness of deceit
Casts bold its shadow long and lean
Across the melancholy sea
Crying out to be set free.
But freedom cannot find her echo
Muted by defined disgrace.
Whimpering she seeks her solace
Cloaked by veils of blackened lace.
Shame becomes her sole companion,
Loneliness a bosom friend.
Solitude her only comfort as she
Contemplates the end.
Was it worth the pain and sorrow
Playing out your vain disguise?
Now the unmasked interloper
Paying dearly for her lies.
Lies are but the Devil’s scalpel
Slashing scars on Beauty’s face, and
She could spend a thousand lifetimes
Trying to get back to grace.
