A Pretty Girl

You had a name
And a pretty dress
You wore it well
You wore it to impress
We smiled
And said what we say
It is the dance of strangers
Wondering if this is the day
To be who we are
To prepare our minds
For the journey beyond the superficiality
The imperfect word failed to find
You wanted light
I wanted darkness
And yet when it was my turn
The light was my fearlessness
To tell you that I am everything
Everything you want
The challenge that you need
As you flickere through this moment
To the time and place of a dream
Igniting before your eyes
As my calling became yours
And you finally removed your disguise
As spontaneous prose burst before you
To the laughing mirror you were sent reeling
To confirm what you already knew
Beauty could not stop what I was stealing
Yes you are pretty
So very pretty
But is today the day
To find your soul in the city?

Beauty is a virtue yet only skin-deep and we seem to get what it is that we wish for, huh? Good write! WB

Physical beauty fades, but the beauty of one's soul does not...may each woman find to cultivate it so as not to lose it...

Hi Raciniwa. Yes it is what is on the inside that matters because outer beauty can be fleeting. We all know this yet we seem to forget...
