A Beastly Beauty

Branded the most beautiful
She stands alone, no push or 
Sparkling nails and eyes so 
Her head held high as her 
dreams come true
Rosy lips and a sculpted nose
Deafened ears that hear no 
Shiny frocks and golden locks
She smiles away as money 
Perfection drips, truly a beauty 
so rare
But unfortunately she's never 
learnt to share
Finally I recover from her 
To discover this beauty here's 
my only chance

I follow her everywhere
But what I find you wouldn't 
want to hear
All the lies swept aside,
This is what alas I find

A cold stare, a cruel face,
A heart that has never known 
no faith
Filthy hair and lips that lie
She's never had a reason to cry
Wrinkled hands that never 
learnt to give
She forgot to love, let alone 
Her eyes are just a waste of 
Cause they never see the pain 
others go through
A twisted mouth , a crumpled 
she's got the world, but that's 
still less
It's all her fault that she's all 
Cause no one likes a heart 
made of stone
She's an ugly beast behind a 
beautiful mask,
Is she beautiful is no question 
to ask.

    Hi Ayesha - Her eyes are just a waste of blue, Those words alone say it all. I can't believe there is a life without pain. Guess it all caught up with her. love your poem, Kathy
