Droplets of acid trickling down
my beautiful, smooth skin.
Till this day, I can’t forget
the excruciating pain I felt within.
Layer by layer, my flesh burnt,
leaving my face disfigured.
I stopped looking into the mirror
due the painful memories it triggered.
Gone are the days when I hoped
life would be a fairytale.
Now, I feel crestfallen,
cloaking my identity in a veil.
He charred not only my face,
but also the dreams I had.
I pity my very existence which
has turned to be beyond bad.
I yearned for love to melt my heart,
Yet, fate had my soul ripped apart.
