poetry by j matthew waters

sometimes I see her

there is this beauty
inside you
existing secretly
behind the artificiality
of your everyday routine

this beauty inside you
speaks to me
in my living dreams
allows me to understand
it’s smothered beneath
your colorful skin

the beauty that is yours
dies to be noticed
and so you continue
to scratch the surface
hoping to find her

  6. There’s more going on between the lines here, John, just beautiful and then the ending…wow, very powerful!

  7. Simple yet complex… Ironical though it is… But this is the beauty of this poem… that my nerves could not miss.. (Well I am not really good with poems. But yes I could feel it.)
