The beauty

Written by 

When I am unattractive
Will you comfort me to sleep?

Will you wake me into prettiness?

Or ignore me when I weep?
Will you hold without desire

So, two are one embraced

And love me when I’m naked

When love is strongest chaste
Will you love me for my beauty

Then forget that you forgot?

Will you tell me I am pretty

When I know that I am not?


Theophanais Kleanthous
