Skin Deep by Tamsen Grace


Skin deep,

get under my skin

to see me,

knee-deep in this insanity,

beauty makes us weep.


must have thick skin,

the epitome of beauty

is said to be stick thin,

the price we pay is steep.


Shattered dreams,

lives ripped apart

at the seams.

We waste away,

no respite,

only beauty sleep.
