Abused and Neglected... Beauty (Cuts Across Her Arms)


Her beauty intrigues me,
Going misunderstood—
Crying for attention,

But it finds nothing.

I scream to it,
Telling it I notice
But her beauty is deaf.

I wave at it,
Telling it I notice,
But her beauty is blind.

I grab at it,
Telling it I notice,
But her beauty cannot feel.

Her beauty cries,
And I cry too,
Because hopefully one day
Her beauty will notice me.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
