You Have Always Been Pretty – Written Monday 10th May 2021 (Aged 46)

You Have Always Been Pretty

you have always been pretty
in the eyes
and in the face
your prettiness
has an intoxicating taste
your eyes
have always told stories
that have ladles of emotion
just as your childhood
is the disrupted commotion

you have always been pretty
but then,
i knew that from the start
all those years ago
when i was picking up pieces of my heart
when i was mending fences
and learning to build doors
you have talkative eyes
that reflect much of your care
it is in your face
and that is what i adore
