Beauty Is Not That Masquerade

Beauty is not that masquerade
With enlarge nipples and extended eye lashes
Strolling down the road in low waist on mount Everest shoes
Beauty is not that masquerade
In skirts revealing thighs and flaps
Painting imageries everywhere
Like a reader left to make up
Many elaborate meanings
In a book by our own W.S
Leaving audiences perplexed with many a paparazzi
Left dazed at the display of confused aesthetics.
Red lips, pink ribbons, yellow shades,purple belt…blue shoes…
No, beauty is not that elaborate attire…
Beauty is not that masquerade

  4. Beauty!
    They say it’s in the eyes of the “Beer-holder”.
    I remember my secondary school activity, where i indulge in a self-absorbed activity of “editing” the beauty of any girl i see ornately dressed or representing what “society” deem to be beautiful.
    Your poem brings memories, and am sure it’s same for most readers.
    It’s is full of twin- imageries, starting from:
    Painting imageries everywhere
    Like a reader left to make up
    Many elaborate meanings
    In a book by our own W.S……………
    It is cool.

    1. My dear brother, people just make themselves avantgarde all in the name of beauty. And in that process, they become even obscure! What an irony. Thanks for reading and expressing your thoughts.
