A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH The silky pearly-white soft skin, beneath her comb's dark beams and her intriguing olive eyes' attentive, thoughtful gaze, behind the night's befalling veil, with elegance supreme, like mystic crypts enchant the men and cause infernal blaze. Involuntarily transmits her messages across a forest nymph expands her spell beneath the moonlight's phase, beguiles the thoughts; romantic dream her cherry lips of gloss the nightly creatures stuns and laws of reason disobeys. Untamed, a diamond in the rough, the nymph in darkness shines without a partner to escort her dance beneath the sky, denies to coexist with men, proposals she declines, and so belongs to breezy streams, that lift her image high. © Olive Eloisa Guillermo, 08-20-2014, All Rights Reserved (Quatorzain or Iambic heptameter

    Allow me to say that this poem is inspired by Arthur poem Burka woman but I did it in the opposite as I was also inspired by a documentary I watched. All over the world this happens due to poverty and lack of support both from parents and government..

    Some chose such ways to have "easy money" but they use this to support themselves.. Some treat them unfairly and see them as somewhat "dirty".. I hope and pray that such treatments are eliminated rather still respect and respect must prevail..

    . I hope too that those who are well-off will learn to value what they have, for some strives so so hard to finish their degree..:)

    And I really salute this people who tried to step out and stand from such situations and I salute more those who chose other way to support themselves. I am so thankful that I am blessed with responsible parents.)God bless us all... From such rough situations, diamonds will still shine.. :)

    Hi Olive_eloi! They say that opposites attract. Having read and much appreciated Arthur's I can safely say that your poem is also an excellent piece of work...seen from a different angle. // paul

    I am truly flattered Olive, I am at a loss for words! I loved the line "She tried to impress as slowly she undress" I can tell you that will always impress!!!!
