*is Society To Blame?

She was beautiful
But she didn't see beauty like I saw it
She was undefined, prone to cry
Just a little undeveloped
I loved her just the way she was
But she couldn't see
All the beauty inside
She tried to cover up for me
Using makeup, push-up bras,
Thongs and low cut jeans, flaws
In the mirror, mascara runs, and all she saw
Was a stupid fat w***e
Guess I was never enough
To curb her false identified self image

Locked in the bathroom
Blood on her hands
Fingers down her throat
And I lost respect for her
I cursed and screamed
But I held her tight
Tried to keep her head up high
But it really didn't matter
She saw
Unwritten law
And now I'm gone
Because she was so lost

She was beautiful
This is what I told her over and over again
"You don't have to do this for me
You don't have to look like them
I don't even like them
Baby I love you
Don't you see?
This is the reason that I chose you"
She wouldn't stop, her mind was set
I was so upset
It was the little things about her that I loved
Do you catch my drift?
But she went ahead and did it anyway
I was hurt and confused
I thought I showed her that I loved her

Waited in the car
Sweaty palms, stomach sick
Went and changed herself
And I lost respect for her
I couldn't think about it
But I held her tight
Tried to keep my head straight
But it really didn't matter
She saw
Unwritten law
And now I'm gone
Because I was so lost

I touched her gently
I loved her right
She didn't notice
Se was busy reading Cosmo
And all of the sudden
Before my eyes
She was some bimbo
Waiting tables for pigs and horses

Was a moment in time
A second nothing more
When I held her close
And I felt perfect for her
But she fell down hard
Though I held her tight
Tried to keep her head up high
But it really didn't matter
She saw
Unwritten law
And now I'm gone
Because she was so lost

a wonderful poem
This is vintage Uriah Hamilton. What more needs to be said? Warm regards, Sandra
the astounding honesty rips into the heart just goes into it the truth of true love nothing like it and to gather words into a poem and then give that poem freely to all that deserves the highest praise
I agree with Ivy.........the sadness bleeds through yet it's such a beautiful poem! The romance and passion that is in your heart is so wonderful. You are just about as beautiful as a person I've ever known Uriah. You should know that (and believe that!) Sincerely, Mary
beautiful images in this romantic poem my friend, but I sense sadness behind the lines since from the title and the use of both fantasy and 'another reality' implies a desire for spending more time with her in real life than in dreams. Don't let your heart break Uriah, it is far too precious! excellent write! HBH
