I praised her for her beauty;

For her long length of skin.

She wanted to be praised though,

For beauty held within.


The problem was that beauty

Inside was not so much;

Just intelectual hubris

I did not like to touch.


Her skin was soft dark velvet

And salty to my tongue.

Her soul was full of bitterness

For praises never sung.

    That’s normally how it goes..’praises never sung’..sad but true ..there’s so much more than the flesh but sometimes we lose to learn..deep write🌹

    a very good emotive write, beauty is on the inside of people no matter how beautiful (or ugly) they look.
