Beautiful

They all say it.
They all say she is beautiful.
Her body, her face, her hair.
They say she is beautiful.
But she only believes it,

when you say it.

In your eyes,
Her curly locks are made up of bouncy strings of strength and hope blowing in the wind,

as she acts out her ideal existence.
Patterns of wanting to be loved are woven together,
They form her face.
And on her face,
You see tear stains of loss and lust that keep her away from trust.
You don't see body.
You see a temple that should only be entered after it is worshiped, respected and handled with care.

When she rests her burdens on your shoulder,
You take them and carry them for her.
Everytime you two lock eyes,
Your heart invades her mind and tries to explain why it's blushing, why it's so shy.

They all say she is beautiful.
But she doesn't believe them.
They look at her with hungry eyes,
And beg for a chance to fix a heart that their lack of patience have already broken.

They don't know why she cries,

they don't encourage her to try,

they don't know her fears,

they don't know why she is insecure about her feet and her ears,

they don't know why she is beautiful.

 

For beauty is more than body,

more than face,

more than hair.

She's only beautiful because you care.

 

They all say she is beautiful.
But she only, truly, entirely, undoubtedly believes it,

when you say it.
