Poetry Train

Pretty Boys and Handsome Men

Pretty boys with pretty smiles.
Shallow smirks and cocky grins.
Believing in their superiority.
Never seeing they’re commonplace.

Pretty boys with pretty bodies.
Golden skin unmarred by life.
Believing in their beauty.
Never seeing they’re ordinary.

Pretty boys with pretty minds.
Spouting poetry about love and life.
Believing in their intelligence.
Never seeing they’re average.

Pretty boys aren’t for me.

Handsome men with handsome smiles.
Understanding laughs and shy grins.
Believing they’re commonplace.
Never seeing their superiority.

Handsome men with handsome bodies.
Golden skin marred by life
Believing they’re ordinary.
Never seeing their beauty.

Handsome men with handsome minds.
Talking about experience and dreams.
Believing they’re average.
Never seeing their intelligence.

Handsome men are for me.

    Thanks, Jill.

    Oh young guys have their talents and their place, but for me, older men are so much more fulfilling. 🙂

    I really like the simplicity of this one!
    So older men are better?
