True Beauty of Love

The NaPoWriMo challenge is to write a poem a day for the month of April.




Time’s cruel hands have scarred her,

damaged her beyond recognition.

She is a shadow of what she used to be.

Beaten, bruised, battered she,

Is she good enough to be your fantasy?


Will her disfigured form,

invoke desire in your heart?

Will you ever look beyond,

her battle-scarred heart,

and see her unblemished soul?
