Or So They Say

Your hair is too long

Your eyes are too dull

Your face is too plain

Or so they say


Your voice is too loud

You cannot sing

You’re too boring

Or so they say


You’re too antisocial

You never talk

You’re no fun at all

Or so they say


But they lie

Or at least are blind

To what I see;


Your face is flawless

Your voice is my favorite song

You’re my best friend

You’re perfect

    Excellent! This is very sweet! I love how you presented this very sweet expression of love....from the negatives that crush to the love that covers, revives and inspires. Very well done. Delightful!

      Awww thanks again so much for your very nice comments! 🙂

      Very well written the last part turns the earlier parts on their head and the second last part acts as an ideal bridge between both. Well constructed you have done really well.
