Despite The Defects

 

You are looking at volume lacking in her hair

All I see is the brilliance  in her head

You hear the accent in her voice

All I hear is the honesty in her harmonies

You say her spine is arched and her shoulders aback

All I see is her confidence

You say she needs some beauty tips

It’s her personality that gets my heart

You want to grace her face with make-up

But her heart does need no stroke of paint

Can I get a little?

If you would not extol me

Can I get a little applaud maybe

If you would not celebrate me

Can I get a little bazaar maybe

If you would not eulogize me

Can I get a little acclaim maybe

If you would not exalt me

Can I get a little fete maybe

If you will not honor me

Can I get a little jubilee maybe

If you will not venerate me

Can I get a little reverence maybe

If you will not adore me,

Can I get a little treasure maybe

If you will not cherish me

Can I get a little esteem maybe

If you will not appreciate me

Can I get a little recognition maybe

If you will not regard me

Can I get a little attention maybe

What I See

Your feet are graceful in your peep-toes
The bends of your curves are like gems
Like the product of stones
In the hands of veteran sculptor
At least, that is what I see.

Your navel brings memories
Of fresh wine served in gourds
The sight of your tummy
Brings butterflies to my belly
At least, that is what I see

Your teeth are as fleet as gazelles
All clothed in a rare pallid monotones
Your bosoms are as delightful as rose petals
Like two lost pomegranates on a chilly day
At least, that is what I see

The charm of your mile-high legs is mysterious
Like the sight of the peak of Everest
The beckoning of your tower-like neck
Are alluring with no modesty
At least, that is what I see

Your back in an embrace is as calming
As the stretches of a littoral view
And holding you, I hold my breath in awe
Of an awesome beauty
At least, that is what I see
