Beauty's Tricks

Beauty's Tricks

A Poem by laalaxox
"

Being beautiful on the outside does not make you beautiful...

"

Her sickly sweet, deadly smile fooled us all, with her fake deceiving eyes peering into our souls

Her perfect luscious locks framing her face, flowing in the wind to keep up with her pace

Her red tinted lips, casted a spell on whoever would stare for a bit

People would drop to the floor, to stare in awe, just to witness her majestic glow

That captivated through them all

She appeared as true perfectness, and nothing less

But behind the fake extensions and obsessive manipedis,laid a beautiful beast that no one could control

Lets take a view from the inside, and remember keep all looks aside

A monstrous demon ringed in her, but be careful as she had led to trick us all

Get to close and you could get bitten, from this idea of an evil villain

Beauty has been killed, in the disguise of what you could call

A monster in the hide, no one could ever see past her mask

To discover she was a true outcast, stunned by her beauty

There was no purity, evil lives on to be prolonged

In this take of what we like to call

The ongoing generation

That has startled us all...

"Beauty has been killed, in the disguise of what you could call

The trickery of beauty. Make us believe in what we can see. Not what is within. I enjoyed the poem. The use of language made the the reader want o read and know more. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

'looks can be deceiving'..
the choice of words is simple yet it gives off a really deeper meaning underlying it..

I agree with Coyote Poetry. There is a thick line between beauty itself and real beauty. It is very deceiving. You can never tell who is who just by looking at the outside. A great poem from you, dear. Thank you for sharing.

In the first line do you mean sickly? I like the imagery and things like 'fake extensions' are very specific. It's always good to be specific in poems and not general, which many people struggle with. I like the idea and your message to see beyond the outer beauty. There are a couple of spelling mistakes like villain - you wrote 'villein'. End the poem at prolonged. I think it's a better ending.

Yep I did..
Most people are guilty for judging people by their looks even though most times its unintended but at the end of the day it is never about what is on the outside but what is inside

Very beautiful write up 😊😊😊

thank you!!:)
Outside beauty can be deceiving. This reminded me of "Blind Adoration". And this is why I prefer knowing a person's heart and capabilities rather than focusing on his/her physical appearance. Most people hide behind tons of masks. It's a little difficult to know who is who these days. We just have to be cautious. And woah, I hate narcissists. They seriously annoy the hell out of me. Ugh. Anyway, I liked this poem. It was great though there were some problems with the punctuation marks. Other than that, this was a nicely-penned work.

could not agree more!!
There is an ongoing feeling that made me smile while I was reading a glipmse of anticipation becuase it was guiding me towards something familar. "The Helen syndrome". Some women carry this withing them and they don't even know it plus they know how to use it.
It remind me of Boudicea the Scot warrior.
Thankoyu laalaxox for the request
