More Than Beautiful

She has got lovely lips
yet she is just too lousy!
I caught a glimpse of her 
haughty hips
but wondered why her 
ways are clumsy.

She spends hours in front 
of the mirror
making of a masterpiece-
mess up,
but within her lies a 
terrific terror,
the bane of all her baseless 
break-ups.

Her doctrine distils like the 
dust at dawn,
mediocrity mesmerizes her 
mentality.
Bereft of bliss, she is as frail 
as the lawn,
mowed each time her lies 
seeks longevity.

I doff my heart for your 
fine features,
they are weapons of mass 
distraction.
My heart bleeds for your 
fading future,
void of any sense alluring... 
attraction.

Keep those breast in your 
blouse,
show me something more 
meaningful.
Keep those laps for you 
spouse...
Show us you are more 
than...beautiful.
