Her Portrait - Always on My Mind

Deep, blue seas of intelligence are the first thing that you see,
As her eyes draw you deeper in and subject you to her mystery.
Then you notice waves of auburn hair surrounding a symmetric face;
With each individual strand falling perfectly into place.

The redness of her glossy lips reveals shiny, pure, white teeth,
Subtly formed in an angelic smile with devilish thoughts down underneath.
Rosy cheeks both round and plump, adds color to her skin;
The only conflict on the silk smooth surface is the dimple in her chin.

Her nose is perfectly centered; round and button cute -
Although you wish to speak to her, her beauty has turned you mute.
Eyebrows add expression with each rise and sullen fall;
You simply stand there frozen, trying to ingest it all.

Then suddenly she turns and goes, but her beauty stays behind;
Implanted as an impression to always remain there on your mind.
