Skin Deep

Breathtaking beauty

Turning heads at breakneck speed

No second glances needed

For the first simply never ceased

Men would fawn and drool

Show themselves as nought but fools

As she’d take them for a ride

Let them fall in love with the outside

Before showing them what lay within

The putrid centre behind the perfect skin

By then her thralls would be hooked

As though permanently drunk on her looks

Blind to the ugliness inside



    1. Thank you.😊
      I’ve known a couple, but it wasn’t really them I was writing about. It is, in part, metaphorical. The subject?, I don’t know. Perhaps just temptation in general.
