powdered, light-tinted dust strokes the crevices of her porcelain face.
red liquid plasters the outside of her perfectly shaped lips.
black goo strikes the thick corners of her luscious eyelashes.
the girl staring back at her she does not recognize.
Perfect. Beautiful. Good. the voices in her head say.
A faint smile warms her face;
painted, covered, and disguised in the lies...

Dropping silent raindrops into your hair
Watching them slowly roll down onto your face
while the sun adds its rainbow tint
to their beaded form.
Crying is my best answer to this beauty
Smiling is the response to my tears.

ever seen such bouncing globes of translucent cream
that make the mind spit and spin Catherine wheel style!

A look clear into a pretty girls eyes
clear hard water forced down your optic nerve
the abyss of beauty deep and cold looks back.
Like that mirror stare when an odd flicker calls you back for more.

A quiet boy -
he painted rainbows,
got lost in the words
of ancient poets,
spoke with respect,
offered up his seat
and his place in the world
to the unfortunates.
he spoke in words
of love and peace
when the world was cruel,

Life is too short and so
to save time,
to be efficient.
I wear an Einstein wardrobe;
white blouse, black jeans, boots, yet
when a kaleidoscope of colour
flounces before me, I envy
I indulge in the dream of being
free to reside in sparkling rainbows
simply dancing, with no destination
kicking away scrumpled up “to-do” lists

Crazy young one
your time is soon to come.
Keep shoving those rails up your pretty perfect snout.
You think your a king,
from the head you boast about.
Your smile woo’s the weak,
followers who prey.
Leaders shy away from you,
your a black sheep, eating dry hay.
Women worship you for your charm,
men beg you for your promise,
You smell of sadness and ...

A heart that’s pure,
Love that is gentle,
What great magnitude and depth you possess,
It’s an honor to know you,
Seeing you grow ?
Viewing life through your eyes ?
HUMBLE as they come
The caterpillar has transformed ?
Why are you afraid to face yourself?
Your form is ELEGANT
Your wings are UPLIFTING
Your design is UNIQUE
Creation is ELECTR...

Maybe instead of not being enough,
I was just far too much
Maybe instead of a broken heart,
he left me so I could have a new start
Maybe instead of “being left”,
I was just being pushed one step ahead
Maybe he was the one with problems,
and he walked away to go and solve ‘em
So instead of crying over you,
I will say “Thank you”...
Because what ...

When the night nighed
Her beauty sighed
She looked again into mirror
Beauty scattered by any error
Her face is a piece of cheater
Expert as liar quite neater
Then smoke emanated
As if my wishes detonated
Glasses broke into pieces
Ashamed of reflecting her face
To my Love, this is disgrace
