I've just been grappling with the idea of beauty and where I fit in .. I came up with this poem.


i am not beautiful when i look in the mirror
the shadows around my eyes swallow my beauty

i sit in a chair by a window
naked under a towel

shivering i wrap my arms around myself
a hand resting on my shoulder

and i feel that i am beautiful ...the softness
the paleness of my skin as seen with the pads of my fingers

the heel of my hand rests on my collarbone
my fingertips digging into the soft muscle at my throat

it is here when i close my eyes
and trace my fingertips up the curve of my neck

that i am beautiful
