Is Beauty Only Skin Deep?

Is Beauty Only Skin Deep? short poem

Photo by martinak15

We have many levels of beautiful
Some are clear and visible,
We may touch an adorableness,
Skins depth though questionable of beauty.

Imagine all the colours see the silhouette,
Lustrous smooth and adorable,
Blush fullness of the lips,
Yet still where is the depth.

She can catch your eye with beauty,
Capture thoughts of desire and wantonness,
From a form full of perfection,
Is beautiful really only flimsiest.

Real soul of love within,
Oozes through the skin,
Can alluring be seen even in ugliness,
Think of real beauteous and then it will.

Is then beauty only skin deep,
It has to layer inwards,
For with ever a monstrous soul,
The bonnie will be unborn……

Deep Inside My Eyes

Deep Inside My Eyes short poem

Don’t look deep into my eyes, who knows what you find inside? Is it the dreams that I lovingly hide, or are some demons residing inside. Am too afraid to let you know, Even too scared to make the show.
