Jesse 9 (Unsent Letter From The Muse)

I wish to be that beauty you speak of- angelic yet demure, which I am not. The mirror shows me less than your eyes see

Jesse 9
Unsent Letter From The Muse

My dear friend, I guess the question is this:
you live to dream in worlds of pretty words
of fanciful thoughts and the darkest truths
with words that arouse me to truly wish
that they be true, even if truth is blurred,
in art or dreams or fantasies of youth.
I wish to be that beauty you speak of-
angelic yet demure, which I am not.
The mirror shows me less than your eyes see
speaking with reverence that’s close to love:
your poems , sweet yet filled with tender shocks
capture my heart only to set it free.
My fear is soon, you’ll see me as I am
and replace me, a thought I cannot stand

  8. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

    I can truly relate to this poem. I get insecure about things easily and afraid to get hurt that is why I’m scared to love someone.

  28. We always choose to live a life without any complications, without any obstacles. We tend to choose the easy way to life than to live with a life that is hard.
