Heather T




I really never wanted

to be a pretty girl

mingling in tide pools

of other pretty girls


I want to rise matchless

against the posing stars

scintillating in my flame

branding your secrets

with fingertip perfume


and you will smell me

in the center of a thousand pretty smiles

and cry for depths and thirsting

when I make my own wine

and frost your glass with breath

of lip petal glossing


should you ever dive

the wilds of these waters

and swim open mouthed

against froth of pinked waves


when there is no salt

on other lips like mine

and I am your woman there

in never forget oceans


what of pretty girls


I will breathe

and you will know it

by name

    Heather, this is just beautifully written, and so alluring. While the prettiness may be a first magnet, what is below that prettiness is really what counts.
    In your case, you actually got it both ways, you are a beautiful gifted person who happens to be pretty as well.

    • Heather T

      Thank you for kindest compliments, my friend. You are so right. I have seen some beautiful people that lost all allure when the true self surfaced. Besides, youth and ideal beauty are fast fading.

      • FredPeyer

        Yes Heather, I used to be young AND I am only AND.
