Appealingly Exposed:

by Scott Cole   Jan 17, 2018

Could a flower still compete
Without it's pigments of glee,
Minus it's stunning aroma
No enticement to see.

Beyond it's scenic bloom
Interlaced with zest,
Devoid of all it's splendor
No stimulation to digest.

The lack of it's glamour
Nothing to visualize,
Only the deficiency
Of what once energized.

Not an ounce of vigor
Spineless and leafless,
Nor a ray of hope
Or a touch of firmness.

Zero room of margin
To return it's sex appeal,
All those peering qualities
Not a wishful view to steal.

Unfettered in beauty
Not superimposed,
To the eye of the beholder
Nothing appealingly exposed.

    Scott, I liked this a lot. They like to say; "beauty is but skin deep but ugly goes to the bone.". A lot of times what we might be initially attracted to isn't all that pretty when you take away the trappings...

    "To the eur of the beholder" such true statement. The inner beauty to me that what matter. Often we go by looks and de like what we see but once you get closer you see something else. That is What I gather from this write. I may be wrong. All the best
