Lights and Kinds and Types and Nights

Lights and Kinds and Types and Nights

A Poem by Dave Skin
"

.

"
certain types of people
only look good when things look bad
and certain kinds of people
always look bad when things look good
very few can look the same
under sunlight or the moon
but most will never know
what it is they truly look like
thanks to certain types of people
under certain kinds of light
and the precious few who look the same
under daylight or the night

Word juggling here but i like the word play. When a person is not true to the core then he/ she changes with changing color... Though remains the same from within but the overtures changes. Only true to the core surpass anything and remains unaffected....

The unknown faces that lie beneath what good and bad can show the world yet disguises always strike an appeal to eyes that are steady attempting to get across strange lands without causing noise to certain types of people. I loved how powerful you wrote this piece I know you'd had a different meaning but loved every word. Neat idea to write about very original. Keep writing sincerely your friend in writing and life. :)

I think, given the viciousness the internet culture can generate, that few people can always look good. Mother Teresa, maybe, but don't bet the farm on it.

It reads very smoothly, you're really nailed the cadence and rhyme. The subject matter is just enigmatic enough to inspire thought. Echoing the "sun and the Moon" line with "daylight and night" really ties this thing up well.

Nothing so strange as people. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, some pleasant and some downright nasty. Most have a mixture of good and bad. Now Vera Lynn, was a good person, held in much admiration just like Sir Capt Tom who has been a beacon of light for us in the UK through covid. Some people have a natural shine, just as the sun does and the moon. You know I pondered on that old saying, one man's meat is another man's poison. None of us can please everyone all of the time. Some of us if we are lucky, will please a few as we pass through. Thanks for Vera, good to listen to. An enjoyable read.

Quite true. Many people are chameleons and change depending on where they are. Good rhythm.
