Beauty

A Poem by Anastasia Purvis

My eyes gaze upon your beauty 
Soft and glowing with splendor 
Such as none I have seen before 
Like a moth to a flame I am drawn 
Captivated, over-stimulated 
Speechless, dumb 
My mind is running and searching 
For a million different things to say 
Before I lose the chance and you 
Walk away..forever and I can’t 
Form the words, my mouth, 
My tongue is frozen in time 
And my hands begin to shake 
Whilst I imagine yours in mine 
You walk away and it occurs to me 
That while others see your flesh and bone 
I have only seen what I have known 
The beauty I see with my inner eye 
Is that of your heart, your soul, your mind.

I love this poem about seeing inner beauty and seeing more then meets the eye.

This is truly beautiful. It made me feel things writing has never before, for it speaks a great truth. The wording of this is absolutely wonderful. I sure hope to see more pieces like this in the future!

True beauty is rarely seen.
"The beauty I see with my inner eye
Is that of your heart, your soul, your mind."
I liked the above lines. Gentle and true need. Thank you Anastasia for sharing the excellent poetry.

Been a long time since I felt like..
Your words are sacredness.

IS THAT OF YOUR HEART YOUR SOUL YOUR MIND

Now that's the kind of love we need. We should go for. I was distracted and misled by masks way too often..
