Her beauty is unassuming


Her beauty is unassuming,

Her wit more pronounced,

Beneath her smile lies a coy and charming heart.

Strangely she is unaware of this,

Her innocence is largely over rated.

Her eyes speak the depth of her heart even when her mouth is closed.

Every word and thought is laced with something deeper,

She is surrounded by so much mystery and mischief.

Her charm has led many to places where they never imagined they will reach

Her warm smile is enough to make any man reconsider his stand

Her history latches onto her like a parasite to its host

She seems unaware of the depth of the power that lies within her

She sees herself in only one light

The one that shines brightly from the end of his stick…
