Miss Take

Miss Take

 

There were far too many posed photographs

for his liking

Remember the one in the turquoise two piece

And the praise that she craved fed her hunger

far longer than was

reasonable, or fashionable, or natural, to do ..

but when she found out that not one of them

loved her

and all they ever wanted to do was to fuck her

What a let down that must surely have been ..

Hey now tho'

she is nothing but history and barely even that ..

      Aww, I will meet her, and treat her nicely.....not the penultimate stanza. Woof! No, says Fido.
      But how will I ever have any nice slap and tickle, with Fido always in tow? He won't stay in the doghouse, to give me a break! lol.

          Beauty is only skin deep eh? As a youngster I used to wish I was better looking so that I could enjoy the attention of the really beautiful girls who's presence teased my libido. With a few years beneath my belt came the realisation that i was better off not getting involved with their vicious ego's.
          It must be very painful for them when realisation dawns upon them and all their values along with lovers fade into insignificance as you well describe here.

              But when the sun kissed her eyelashes,
              and she smiled so sweetly
              Somewhere beneath her lips
              Her body felt loved

                  Beauty is so mistaken just by looking at people, to see their real beauty you must look deeply into their eyes.

                    The ephemeral nature of culturally imposed standards of ‘beauty’ clearly portrayed as the load of shit it is.
                    Thanks Neville

                      ... not everything is pretty, is it .. whether real, imagined or in the very glue that binds everything together .. poetry that is ... thank you DD ..

                    • Fay Slimm.

                      Methinks a Miss as explained here will ever Take as long as hunger for praise is craved. Much food for thought in this needed write Nev.

                      • Neville



                        ...................... thank you dear Fay .. and muchly too my lady ..

                        what a morose reality
                        you depict so acutely, you empathetically gifted Poet...
                        oh how - we belittle
                        each other's self-worth, just
                        to keep ourselves afloat...
                        I like to interpret, when Keat's wrote
                        "Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
                        Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."
                        he was referring, to the simple fact
                        that only 'born-of' Truth can Beauty ever meaningfully exist
                        with tangible worth
                        all else: it's but, our glorified
                        obsession with possession
                        of all things we deem
                        aesthetically pleasing, however
                        momentarily our 'interest' - lingers
                        after consumption...

                        a daringly brilliant write my friend! forgive me if I have imprinted my own blinkered impression as to the meaning behind your words, its just my overzealous nature 'acting-up', lol

                        • Neville
