Beauty is Pain

By @LBroil

Lessons from marketing

Chapter 1

You heard beauty is pain

and thought your suffering made you desirable

You misunderstood a lie

told to perpetuate itself

You must be pretty before

your wounds mean anything

But glamour cuts deep

before it is enough

You will carve away parts of yourself

Then society will take the scalpel

and mark new incisions

and the lie will stitch you up
