ODE TO BEAUTY...by b. Malin

Clips in my Hair...

And Large Underwear.

With Cream upon my Face.

To make me BEAUTIFUL.

While Lover Man stares...


I know, I know, I look a disgrace.

He Loves Me, he Love Me.

I know that he does...

He loves the Results.

But doesn't really need to know,

How I got It all there.

I know, I know.

Lip Bleach on my Lip Hairs...

So we don't look like twins!

And Coloring my Hair,

Should it be done secretly?

Probably, Probably.

But in the End...

He Loves the Results.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me,

All through the Night...

And in the Morning, by the harsh daylight...

He tells me I'm BEAUTIFUL...

What a delight!

I love people who are so secure in who they are that they can poke fun at themselves.

And yes, I can assure you that he loves you. Who would not love such a lovable mind?

I really like this one. Voted up and beautiful.

Thank you WillStarr...I'm not sure how secure I am, but this was a fun piece for me to write... We all need to laugh at ourselves a little. Thanks for your wonderful comments.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder or so... "they"... say but it's what inside that creates the real beauty. Even a little paint makes an old barn look great. Like Will I don't think you man is looking to trade anyway soon.

I hear that the large underwear you speak of is very comfortable and warm. And women are frisky when they're comfortable, so there. Awesome poem!
