Am I Ugly?

They look, they stare

They wonder, they dare

They ask me why I’m still single

It sometimes makes me feel worthless, hence, I don’t mingle

They talk, they whisper

Words can hurt, they can blister

And even without a word I feel they’re saying smugly

You’re still single because you’re ugly

It’s like the sun shines everytime he smiles

A light in that look

A hint of glitter

The warmest smile

A dashing air of grace and kindness

Where, oh where could such young lad be?

I looked at myself in the mirror and saw someone else

She looked pretty with all the colors painted on her face

Her hair looked well kept

She was almost perfect.
People couldn’t believe it was her

Their reaction said it all

But despite loving how she looked that night

She still prefers to keep it simple and light.
She loved looking pretty outside 

But still prefers the beauty that is found within 

You Pretty Little Thing

Hey you pretty little thing

Silly little thing you are

Cuteness bundled up

And you don’t even notice

 

My heart raises whenever you’re around

It rises in a good way

 

Oh sweet little thing

What a pleasure it is to be near you

Your presence gives joy to the once aching heart

 

Oh sweetness I adore thee

And I am contented to be

As close as we are now

The Beholder

Unchain the shackles and see me as I am

Am I the star that lights up the night?

Or the flame the burns so bright?

 

Do you see me prettiest without any make up on?

I wonder if to you my eyes sparkle

No matter or whatever the angle.

 

Do birds suddenly appear

whenever I am near?

Do clouds part or does heaven’s gate open

to make way for me?

 

Should I change in any way?

Or is being me enough

to  make you smile and laugh?

 

Should I lose weight or gain a bit?

Do I need to do more so you will be pleased?

Or do you see a different beauty, the one

that will never cease?

 

I’d like to know what the beholder sees

Won’t you tell me,

pretty please?
