your beauty is so easy to see
a goddess…
walking among mere men
your eyes can melt ice
warm and comforting
tantalizing beauty
covered in clothes
making imaginations run wild
visions of kissing every inch
of her naked body

sadly she helps nurture this illusion
mascara accentuate her eyes
contacts hide her weakness
never to be seen with eyeglasses
highlights in her hair
only add to her persona

every year she works harder
to maintain her status… a perfect goddess
and every year some men leave
while many others… worship her
and every year she dreams
of her perfect lover
a lifelong mate

her dream is never realized
as every relationship ends
she feels… used and violated
no one feels this pain
as she continues her beauty rituals
keeping alive the illusion…
keeping alive the dream…

or has it become…
a nightmare…
one created by her own vanity…
years from now…
when the beauty leaves
lovers from her past
and her present…
will ask the same question
who are you?

(c)2006 Dave Harm

creating dreams, from the nightmares of hell

I am totally in love with a woman like this; she does not wear makeup or anything; she does not have to. She's also hurting me more than anyone ever has. So I can relate to your verses. Love and peace,

instead of whats real

I'm sure that there are view points like this for men as well.

Many men who lead a nonsensical life looking for the perfect mate or soulmate; or some who are playboys, as they get old, they are loneliest men on earth.

When they get old and everyone is away, or when they get old and even has a lot of so-called friend around them, but they are the loneliest creature on earth, and no one really loves them for who they are.

Anyway, not really sure why I'm saying all these things; but this is true.

Men feels more lonelier than women when they get old, used, and spent.

Interesting viewpoint, Dave. I'm sure there are women like this around -- narcissistic, vain, and caught up in themselves ... Again, interesting viewpoint, nicely done.
Warmest regards,
