Excellent stanza Esmerelda. Love it. Making the outside look great does not stop the rotting smell of the superficial.

I thought the same - beautiful. I love those kinds of contradictions between ugly and attractive, good and bad, love and hate etc. awesome start to a poem.

Rotting on the inside,
but we have never looked more beautiful. 2 comments


Poisoning one another
with our hollow words and toxic smiles.


We label ourselves as "wild and free",
but we are prisoners of our own egos. 1 comment


Golden generation that took the wrong turn.
Delicate flowers, hiding their thorns.


Trying to grab all the life that we can,
forgetting that we're already dead.
