Deny Me

Deny Me

A Poem by sarboom

Written quite a long time back in last July. For someone who doesn't want to believe that she's beautiful no matter what I say.

I couldn't care less
   about your eyes;
        be they amber,
             blue or amethyst,
and your tresses,
    be they cropped or long…
        dark as midnight
              or red as sunset.

I don't give a damn
   if you're fair or dark,
       or if your hands
are soft as petals,
          or if your fragrance
should remind me
              of rain wet roses.

But every restless night
       and every endless hour,
I am haunted and taunted-
           not by shameful moments,
                not by tender memories…
but by a heart too fickle.

Great piece. I like the little contradiction in the end,
I am also very new to this site and would greatly appreciate if you could possibly take the time to give feedback in a review of my first and only piece.
Thanks and keep writing!
