This is what I think when people tell me that I'm beautiful for whatever small resemblance I have to a media prototype ideal.

beauty is a salesman
in a suit of smooth skin
with round perky breasts
and hairless shins

beauty is a pawn shop
with windows of blue
or searing dark brown
blinking slowly at you

beauty is the odor
of wet rotting flesh
in the nose of a fly
but the flower is fresh

beauty is the stake and shakles
outside the dragon's lair
beauty is a salesman
buyer beware

hahaha yes
real true beauty
resides in the pulsating beats
of the heart
in the delicate sway of the fingers
.....ofpoets like yourself
thats right don't let yourself be defined by onlookers
who only surf surface..........enjoyed!!
