True Beauty Like True Love.... - Poem by Bolami lawal

As the dust settled in the dusk,
as the night embraced the moon,
there she laid in the shadows,
yet from a distance, so appealing;
her light shineth brightest from its base,
not as the eye perceived,
but as the heart possessed;
so, for herself she spoke
as her smile lightens up the dark
as her spirit ignites the flames of joy....


As raindrops stormed the coast,
as the breeze stroked the clouds,
there she stood in the rain,
yet from a distance, so revealing;
her countenance the fairest in kind,
not as the flesh could yeild,
but as the soul would give;
so, for herself she spoke
as her kindness assuage in pains
as her silence appease in rage....

I found beauty in the mire;
yet from a distance, so alluring;
her bosom, a delightful sight;
her words, a well of affection;
for true beauty like true love
'a spring of joy,
true beauty like true love
'a lake of light;
true beauty like true love
impresses the soul!
