By Giuliana Cappi, ’22:
What is more beautiful than a smile? Is it when you make her cry?
Her bleeding heart as she reaches out for you.
The stumble in her legs as she runs to catch you but watches as you slip through her trembling fingers.
Trying desperately to pick up the pieces you left behind.
The tears that leak from her eyes engraving in your mind that instead of tears of joy, you see her tears of longing.
Her dance of chaos.
When everything around her starts waltzing to a fall.
Is she beautiful enough for you?
