    Beauty's pain gives her name, her light in flame, her death is fame.

    Great imagery. I lover the last stanza - especially the line 'The future is a grey seagull'. Reminds me of a seagul I saw in Brighton on one dull rainy day.

    this poem is great but I think it needs more of a big idea and a theme
