Author: jessa-beth PM
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We've all heard the phrase before. This poem is just my meditations on that well known saying.Rated: Fiction K+ - English - Romance - Words: 105 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 11-11-07 - Status: Complete - id: 2437287

To one like you I'm sure it seems unkind
That one like me could take, in this, delight;
But you and I are two of separate mind,
So what you say is wrong, I may call right.
She is the brightest rose within my sight;
Truly, she's a wonder to my eye.
But you would say she barely shines that bright,
And that she is dull as a starless sky.
Something in you sees her quite so dry,
And something in me sees her as a queen.
Beauty's not the truth, it is a lie
That every separate mind believes is seen.
