BEHOLDING HER (4)

Written by: Alayande Stephen

She wasn't the perfect description 
Not of less beauty or over pretty
Cannot be said to be an angel
Or the goddess of the beauty
But, honestly, I must say 
Yet, she was a pretty damsel
That her sweet voice on phone 
Was more beautiful than her image.

I walked along with her
Many thought ran through me
I wasn’t too keen about her beauty
For her beauty only lies in my eyes
She is indeed an asset to guide jealously.
