It Is Enough

I am dark shadows and tear-stained cheeks.
I am bursting laughter and bruised hips.
I am a brooding damp fog and twisted smiles.
I am tormented memories and soft silk.
I am covered in anguish and measured lines.
I am tracing and repeating and inward mind.
I am troubled of spirit and a passionate desire.

But none of that matters.
Because, to you, and only you,
I am beautiful.
A pale blue star in a sky of bright lights.
You chose me.
And that is enough.

  1. That sounds like the truest form of love: “But none of that matters. / Because, to you, and only you, / I am beautiful.” All those images in the first part were very strong! A poem you can see as well as feel!

  2. “But none of that matters.
    Because, to you, and only you,
    I am beautiful.
    A pale blue star in a sky of bright lights.
    You chose me.
    And that is enough.” Simply true and divine..

  3. The most important thing is, accepting and love our own selves, all of the positive AND negative parts, and, after we can, achieve that, then, love from without comes, more, easily.
