Shallow Beauty

Poem By Jon Lloyd

It's unlikely but true -
Your physical attraction
Entertains me
On so many levels.

Your voice as smooth as slate
But subtle - soft and subtle -
And untarnished by locality
Draws my soul.

You utter practical nothings
Statistical representations
Cardboard cut-out numbers
Meaningless drivel;

I want to hear you speak
Of more important things -
Of life and loves and instincts
But am denied.

Good poem. You might enjoy my poem: I Say There Is No Physical Beauty.
I like this poem... It happens so often... first you have shysical attraction... but when you get past it... you have to have something more... GREAT! ! !
I like this one very much. The flow of the ideas and words go well. And of course, there's the wit. I would say, YES!

a voice as smooth as slate......what a line love the title, explains all pp x
