Her eyes crinkle as she laughs
A full-throated, soulful chime.
Her expressions flicker across her face,
Betraying her thoughts every second of the day.
They come and go with each word she says
A little before and a little behind.
Her hair are a golden brown,
Like sunshine dipped in cinnamon,
Falling in gossamery wisps to frame her face,
The curls bouncing with every breath.
Her skin all honey and caramel,
Contrasting against her peachy lips,
That carve a bow with such a perfect arch,
That even cherubs would fail to match.
Then in an instant all that beauty dissolves
When she smiles in utter melancholy,
Over a pain too great for her eyes to contain,
As she pays a price far too dear
For a man’s thoughtless folly.
