I will be the narrator of this story-
it was a beautiful summer day
when I saw "him" standing there staring

A CLICHE ROMANCE
When it came to dating I had a soul full of sorrow
But all of my friends told me to hang in there
When we met I felt you looking into my soul
My soul laid bare with all protection lost
They say absence...Read More

I think I'm beautiful
I don't have a pleasing smile
Nor can I charm or beguile
My small nose is lopsided
Tanned face often derided

My eyes are odiously small
Ears don't look like ears at all
Freckles all over my face
Please don't ask about my waist

Looks is not my...Read More

A BEAUTIFUL SCARECROW
Her material-finished-economical clothes,
from see through to micro-mini skirts,
all display bleached thighs.
Thighs, cushioning men to comfort,
smooth and spotless,
like refined cotton.
She is beauty itself.
Those who see say:
voluptuous bosom,
tattooed and displayed,
displayed naked for the naked eye.
A glance at them,
has made men instant babies.

Oranges Rather Than Apples
Perfectly observant,
We share the same exact struggle.
Perfectly normal,
A conversation with all but one subject.
Eyes that refer to the category
Of deep need.
Apologies do no justice.
Unpeeled oranges that sit in wait.
Guilty at first glance, suppressing true desire without a word.
Wanting to unravel-...Read More

54 Precent
54 percent may seem like just a number,
A number that means nothing.

The perfect hair and the perfect smile.

Fragile Beauty
Oh, she was so fair
Unblemished skin
Lustrous hair
Everyone would stare

Contempt for all she had
So vain was she 
She spurned a smitten lad
One with love driven mad

One day when in the mirror she did preen
From her scooter she had a fall
Due pothole...Read More

Beauty
 "Beauty is only skin deep",
At least, that's what they say.
Certainly a colorful disposition,
Will never grow old and gray.

Even those with cracks,
Let the inner light shine through.
So yes, beneath layers of epidermis,
There is a one and only you.

Butterfly Beauty


From our youth, we have been taught that beauty is only skin deep;
and  “It’s in the eyes of the beholder”,  is what we like to teach.
Many a head has been turned, and our hearts have taken a leap.

Ugliness
But I can't help the ugliness I pour
And the mirrors I break and the veil I keep
Why is beauty something but ugly something more?
And good people are cursed and beautiful princesses sleep

Ill-tempered Elfin Queen, would bully

when on her throne she sat sadly    

She had to force her head in a sack

Distant thoughts



Fairer to white lily is beauty of pondering mind,
Rather than lovely face, that we so apparently find,

Sharpened through acquired extensive knowledge,
Glory of sunrise, wisdom must one acknowledge,

Nature's lap of luxury, I sit and think,
Are we swindling hard on it, at...Read More

I'm crazy beautiful

MIRROR

Glass can be dangerous
when broken by a fall
it can have a sharp effect
whether large or small

Glass also can be beautiful

showing clearly what we are
nothing will be amiss

We indeed see ourselves
it is indeed as we are
because a...Read More

Beauty is only skin deep
My thighs may slap together
My bum, it may be huge
But if you look a little deeper
You'll find my heart is true

My stomach may be rounded
My bingo wings? Disaster
But my friends will always stick around
While yours will leave much faster

Dead Gorgeous
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
In the pout of the lips,
The curve of a shoulder,
Fresh flesh of the young,
Beauty’s elitist domain.
Eyes sparkling and huge,
Skin free from life’s pain,
No creases or lumps,
A complexion of smooth porcelain,
Ageing the ultimate crime,

Her return
Written: by Tom Wright

She was like "Ghost Smoke"
emerging from ashes past;

Today's inner likeness,
now sequestered,
from days remembered;

Absented days,
I tallied as grains of sand,
and earlier thoughts of her,
though too few to catalog,
I occasionally recall;

In my eyes,
her new inner beauty makes liars,
