In The Eye of The Beholder

She is beautiful
but not in the ways you might like to think so.
She does not have hair that drips gold
and her eyes are not always the color of the cold sea
her smile is sometimes crooked and bent
and her lips ar echapped and thin
she does not have a gentle laugh,
nor does she speak humble toughts
but she is so damn beautiful
in the way the shore kisses white feet
in the way the moon hides itself in
the curtain of darkness every night
she is beautiful
in the way wind dances in hair
and in the way shy lovers hold hands
she is beautiful in the way of
black coffee
and the love poems 
that live in each broken heart
spilling red oil into blue lungs
and she is beautiful
because she refused to taste sadness
even when it was the only thing she had left to eat.
