Flawed Adonis

May 29, 2012
My eyes have been deceived
The perfection of him was less than I perceived
The sparkle of his eyes
Hid all of his lies
And the beauty of his face
Hid the flaws of his disgrace

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", or so they say,
His presence and existence was equal to the
Start of a new day
But as time went by,
I revealed his lie,
And the brilliance that I had once longed for...
Was suddenly no more

Classic love portrayed gracefully in words, one of the best on teen ink.

really well done! rhyming doesn't always do much for a poem or takes away from the main ideas, but your use of rhyme worked very well, and I totally understand the seeing people's flaws after the perfection wears off. nice job, keep on writing! :)
