The way you look.


Poem Commentary

written about admiring lovely women.

The way you look.


I like the way you look. So I stop and stare. Not in a nasty way, I just like your hair. Your face is eloquent and lovely. Most pleasing to the eye. Until you meet my gaze with disgust as a reply. Why so much hate within you? Why bitter and so mean? Who has fucked you over so, so badly? It was not me.

You see I view your beauty as an artwork such as a Matisse. Hung there in the museum for our view. I cannot take it home with me, I know this and that's o.k.

I look upon each as lovely and walk away. I was not trying to use you or take you home. So the next time an admirer views you from across the room. Give him a chance my lady. He may just be there to admire the view.

What about the unlovely? What about the unloveable? I know you're only into the good looking even if they're full of dead mens bones. Typical...



I was simply making a point. I am unlovely as well so I at once identify with and resent your comment. Lol , but keep em coming.

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
