"Ink and paper are sometimes passionate lovers, often times brother and sister, and occassionally mortal enemies." (Anonymous)


A fake plastic smile can be worn well,
Though behind it are words never to tell.
The outer exterior always seems to be so nice,
But covering the inner venom has taken its price.
Her closest friends always take the heat,
Then they put on a guise and act so sweet.
A pretty face is all it takes,
The guys always flock to the flakes.
They are living, walking, talking Barbie dolls,
Eventually their life will take a hard fall.
Really the most popular girls are not pretty,
They are the ones with the smarts—they are witty.
These types of girls will give and give,
But rarely do people notice they live.
They have beauty deep within,
And as roses have thorns they will always win.

When I wrote this I was just so tired of watching all the guys go after the "hot" girls. I wanted to scream, "They are so mean! They don't have a personality!" So I wrote this, instead.

This is so true. I liked the metaphor you used. Making the "hot" girls seem like roses.

I love this! It's so true! But when guys go after "hot girls" it tips you off that they probably have no imagination or brain. Ha! But as far as your writing goes it is very very good!

this may not be a quote but i really love the lyrics-Trust in me the way I trusted you I know we could have done this together If you believed in me like I believed in you My heart would be forever in your hands-all that remains-forever in your hands

wow tottwlly agree with this it is so very true because all the good guys go for the 'hot' girls when really they are very bad now some of them are trully nice on the inside just to show some love to them too but really mostly inside they are njot pretty on the inside and the ones who are smart, funny, and just plain are the ones that are the best. guys out there dont go for hot go for nice, smart, funny because those are really the ones who stick around to the end and that can give you true, real love. i really love this poem!
