Beauty Hurts

Poem By Felix Lugo

I appreciate the efforts you add in your beauty
that others don't always see.
I take notice.
The way you put on different shades of foundation.
The eyeliner and mascara you use that compliments your natural eyes.
That heavenly scent of perfume you splash on your body
before you start your day.
I take notice in every way.
Those shoes that you wear
and how you brush your hair to go with every pair.
The bracelets, rings, and your favorite jeans…
Maybe I observe too closely…
Maybe I wonder why you go through so much
when your natural beauty is much more captivating
than anything I could ever see in a magazine or TV.
How I look at my closet that's nowhere compared to yours.
Shelves with bottles of lotion, perfumes, jewelry,
and so many other items that society calls "beauty"
but between you and I…
your natural self is what really captured me…
Don't always cover your natural beauty…Let it be….

Comments about Beauty Hurts

Ah! A greatly written poem on loving the natural beauty that shines out from within! My father used to always say to us, his four daughters, why do you put on all that gunk! You don't need it! Lol. I guess with maturity comes wisdom! Nicely written poem!

There Is No Rest For Success

Success is a journey not a destination a year from
now you may wish you had started today.
Every beginner is a winner. Success is not escaping problems but facing them creatively.
There is no success without sacrifice.

The Feelings I Have Inside

I hate when I get stares, as if I were different.
I hate when specific words
are said to me, it hurts.
I hate the way I get treated, as if I was not important.

Don’t Love Me

With every kiss you blow,
My lips are simply closed.
For the times you said I love you
my heart had no ears to hear you.

Don’t Cry Little Girl…

It’s not your fault to suffer the way you do,
and I’ll try my best to make things different for you.
I see your watery eyes everyday,
and it causes me pain to see someone

Did You Ever?

Did you ever stop to notice
how much old gum is stuck
on the concrete we walk on everyday.
Seems to be a pretty boring thing to do.

You Don’t Know Me

You may hear things about me, but you don’t know me.
You may find out my favorite hobby, but you don’t me.
You may know my style of clothing, but you don’t know me.
You may know my personality, but you don’t know me.
