Beauty

The image lied to her face
Showed her the truth not within
She looked.
Stared harder and tried to uncover
What was in the hidden revelation

As useless as the hidden lamp
Lighted to be chased away by dark,
Her beauty meant nothing to her
What use was it, if it could not be seen?

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
All those who behold her might as well be blind.
Her beauty cannot be seen.

only felt

Wow! You write in a way that is so refreshingly yours. Your poems have a way of presenting so much conflict in a little space. In this case, the point about beauty being made for more than one of our senses was so effectively dealt with.
