When she looks at me, all she will see is the beast.
She will see only ugly, not beauty.
She will see only a monster, not a lover.
She will see someone pathetic, not lovely.
No girl loves inter beauty. The only type of guys girls love are the pretty boys. No girl will ever fall for a beast. At least, if I were a girl, I wouldn't fall for me.
There must only be a few witches in the world and I had to meet one of them. Sure, she was ugly, but when she shed her shell, she was Aphrodite. Her inside was a beauty. My inside was a beast.
I am a monster, not a beauty.
I only see a beast.
I only see ugly.
I need someone to love a beast. I need her to love me. I need her to see past all of this. I need her to fall in love with me like the princess in a Disney movie. I need her to see the real me.
But this isn't a fairy tale, it's present-day New York City.
In this world, love is truly a beast.
In this world, love sucks.
If I close my eyes, I can almost picture it. The ballroom scene where she's wearing a lovely, old-fashioned ball gown. She reaches for my hand. I don't want to take it; I am too embarrassed. The music starts playing from nowhere. We dance the night away and at midnight I receive that kiss. I go back to normal, but the beauty is still in love with her beast.
This will never happen.
Love is too beastly.
I will not get my Disney movie ending. Instead, I will get a horror movie ending.
I go a dance at another school. It appears to be a school where outer beauty isn't everything. It's Halloween; I can enter. I meet a girl who's nice. She thinks the beast is a costume. When she finds that it's real, she runs away screaming.
Love will never find me.
I will never find my beauty.
No girl will ever see past the beast.
That is until she came along.
The beauty fell for the beast.
