+ Fav Poet


She stood there,
light brown hair,
elegantly displayed,
almost like a stunning wave,
her expression soft,
her emotions could enslave,
she wore a long,
teasing red formal gown,
that almost touched the ground,
she was the toast of the town,
the slit provocatively up to mid thigh,
on the left side,
she was confident, 
but she did have something to hide,
her gleaming lips parted in a small smile,
she walked with so much pride,
men staring, mouths wide,
luminous gaze,
but the other women were holding back laughter,
they sensed something in the maze,
they chuckled, snickered, but held it in with all their might,
they knew the lovely creature was a fake,
she was merely a transvestite,
and that was no mistake,
but no matter how good you look on the outside,
nothing could ever beat how beautiful a real women is on the inside.

    The third leg like a third rail surprise ... got ya! When the object of beauty exist in the borderland of gender identity do we still say she or shim? Do you think a shim would contest your last line? Well executed, good write, my friend. Thanks for your comments on recent write. Peace and love

    Stunning images here and yes true beauty runs deep...I have seen many beautiful women on the outside but inside, just as nasty as they come...People need to realize-looks are not always going to be there and what's inside is what counts...Congratulations on your wonderful feature this week...GB Always, Tyesha
