Portraits Poetry Series #55: Trapped Within Her Beautiful Skin

Portraits Series
All they could see
was her beautiful eyes
and they never knew
all the tears she had cried
for the lies
the lies
they weighed her down
and she paid
a heavy price
their lies.
Her heart spoke
on the tops of mountains
where it dwelled
with birdsong
but she was trapped within
her beautiful eyes
the curves, the lines
and all they imagined
was the sin of her skin
the taste of her breath
and all she wanted –
was to escape
their imagination.
