             Pretty

She thinks she is not pretty,
How wrong can someone be?
She looks into the mirror,
With eyes of misery.

I wish I were that mirror,
Reflecting in her eyes.
She would see such loveness,
She never could surmise.

Deep within upon a shelf,
The treasure of her goal.
Shining in her secret self,
The lovely of her soul.

For sure there was a curtain,
She placed there years ago.
A dark and misty closure
I'm sure that made it so.

But her charisma shines within,
Just a fraction, below the skin.

Seymour, it seems you've honored her prettiness with an equally pretty poem...very sweet.

Nice. Man, it's simply strange how some really hot girls can be so critical about themselves when they are so darn stunning.

Seymour...
this is SO sweet and written with such tenderness and heart...a perfect love poem...

true love is blind by sight and sees with the heart...

your talent shines in this..very nice
janet marie

 you're really alone at last...
you're bored and fading fast,
if it's true you'll fall from the past
all you'll have to do is ask
you'll feel but never be
you want and always need
price you pay for wanting to see
will you have all you've ever dreamed...

This is absolutly gorgeous.
The person that you wrote about is very lucky to have you.
A fantastic piece.

Perhaps she needs someone to place
A mirror right before her face
And pull the curtain veil away
So she can see the light of day
Lovely poem
Love ya

Pretty is the poetry
Written with such grace
May the mirror now reflect
What's truly on her face
Love
