Beauty Glows From Within (Poem)

Beauty is alive and all around us
Disguised with such - a distinct finesse

From the real we choose to display the
Revealing to the world only the superficial

Beauty glows from deep within
Love needs not - a hiding bin

We fear to reveal what we truly feel
For love is sacred, - so we choose to conceal

Although the heart we can never cover up
We must never sentence love - to - a lock-up

Many have tried to act out - what they truly are not
But no matter how hard they try - they always
Get caught

It hurts - it’s true - sometimes to be ourselves
We would rather live like a fool, - than to find oneself

Perhaps it’s best to share our best-kept secret
With the one close enough, and whom - we share
Our blanket

It may be divine interaction to be deeply in love,
With only one
For it seems to all come undone, - when it’s all said and done

This is a poem which needs re-reading.... there is a lot between the lines as well... well written and also inspiring. Yuri
Fine, genuine feelings expressed here. Lovely work, Dave. Regards, Sandra
Hi Dave, Excellent poem. Your so right about this. I think though when you feel you haven't had love in your relationship you tend to be more dreamy or you vent it out. It is hard not to be negative. I think loving someone is so precious and rare today, I think if I was truly in love I would want to shout it out. Take care.
