When she looked
at her reflection
all she could do
was poke and ****
pick apart her
Beauty
she couldn't help
but stare
at the vast
imperfections
to her
the beauty was hidden
beneath a mask
of doubts
and anxiety
Because you feared too much
Of Kraken and sea monsters,
You failed to glimpse
The lovely mermaid falling for you.

Because you feared too much
Of the ghost hiding in the jar,
You failed to discover
The genie waiting in the bottle.

Because you feared too much
Of the white lady in your room,
You failed to recognize
The cold embrace of your mother.

Because you feared too much
Of the priest carrying his head,
You failed to notice
The angel praying beside you.
