"Amongst The Thorns"  

     "Amongst The Thorns"



I seek your face amongst the thorns.
Not standing out, but cowering and forlorn.
Never to be the bud with the perfect face;
Nor picked to adorn with style and grace.


Yet...amongst the thorns, I seek your face.
Plain with hidden character, lost in place.
For on the inside...your  perfection starts;
Imperfect of buds ...with the warmest of hearts.


You stand there fading among faces galore.
I alone see your face...your eyes hit the floor.
Amidst the beauty... I select the plain...
Avoiding the thorns...I ask your name.


Your eyes slowly rise, to seek my face.
From them all...you seek a trace.
Of the contradiction of the "perfect" bud.
But t'was this face my heart did love.


I sought your face amongst life's thorns;
Found love in imperfection, a reason to be born.

Great work Kathie
perception can change the world, and beauty resides in the ugliest states. It's the eye of the beholder, pure and simple. Well penned and expressed.
