incognito

There is a certain beauty
about sanity
hard-earned sanity
I hope, you know


Thus
She was beautiful
staring into the mirror
An intent glare


Deep, very deep
like drilling into her soul
Unblinking
Calm, like dead


Though never as alive
One protruding chin, thoughtful tresses
thin brows, large deep set eyes
and that killing glare, oh


After a lifetime of being cursed as ugly
A moment of sanity told her
that she was indeed
Beautiful, insane no more.


But not the kind that
titillates the flesh
But the kind that
frees the soul from it, the flesh


Beautiful, sigh

Beautiful indeed. The soul, if not the face, but faces can be such a farce, should they matter? In the long run?

She's beautiful. It doesn't matter what anyone else says and she is above words.
