Looks Can Be Deceiving

There was a young girl whose silk skin
Was sewn up with some thread and a pin.
     It would drive the men mad,
     That sleek layer she had,
Well, until she took off her silk skin.

I really liked this poem, Anne, and I can relate to it! I know all to well how looks can be deceiving. You might like my poem titled "The Real Me". Please, read it sometime. I also wanted to say thank you for placing my poem "Serenity", in 7th place in your recent contest. I am glad you thought it was deserving! :)

Cleverly written; I love the flow and rhythm. And I like how you used "silk skin" to describe a person's deceiving looks. :) ~Linda

Art is subjective; no one can say what art is good or bad. But this is what I have to say. I like your poem, it's short and sweet. Yet, I think you screwed up on the first two lines. Each line should express an idea or in some way add to a preceeding verse or line. The first two lines are really one long one. I think you should have broken it down. Maybe like this 'There was a young girl who had silk skin//She had it sewn up with some thread and a pin'. But this is just my opinion. Keep writing.

Truth is always there right behind the lies. Thanks to the madness of what we are told to pursue in life we often miss the greatest gift of all ;Knowing one another for who we truly are.
