Companions and acquaintances

Slowly become friends and lovers

Through shared time and experience.

Ever so steadily, a person’s true face

Shines through whatever façade

They’ve donned to cloak insecurities.

Some at first, are beautiful and glowing,

While some, are unfortunately unattractive.

But as time drawls on the pretty turn ugly,

And the uncomely become butterflies,

Unveiling a stunning pair of wings.

I have found your poems to be very powerful and beautiful. This is one of my favourites though. Keep writing!

Thank you!  I'm glad you

Thank you! 

I'm glad you enjoy my work and will do!

We'll just keep writing 'til there's nothing left to write.

We'll just keep waiting 'til they read all our works left to right.
