Exquisite Beauty


I wrote this after I was chatting with a friend and I called her cute – she got mad! *grin* So I wrote this in response….

 

Exquisite Beauty

You are not cute.

You are exquisitely delicate

Like fine expensive china.

Your beauty sparkles off

Your smile like the light

Twinkling on diamonds,

Hitting the right

Angle as you

Turn towards me

With the face of an

Angel.

I am awed by your beauty

Want to hold you close to me

And kiss you

Tasting the sweet nectar

Of your essence.

Having the closeness of your presence

Melt into me….

You are not cute.

Your beauty is rarer than the jewels

Honed from the dusky soil

Of similarity

All others dull with mediocrity

As I marvel at the

Incomparability

Of your smile.

Even the midday sun

Pales in deference

Dims in significance

And shies away in reverence

As I see you radiate

Your essence

When you come near.

You are not cute.

Your beauty stops me in my tracks –

My breath is halted

I forget to breathe

As I marvel in the wonder

That is you…

Your voice plays softly with my ears

Whispering away and soothing fears

That you might leave again…

And although I know you

Are rarer than the most expensive

Gem

I know for certain

That you are not cute.
