I despise the word "pretty"
and its lazy attempt
at describing such extraordinary things.
She has a pretty face.
She has a gorgeous smile
that makes boys trip over their tongues
and eyes that make the sun blush
when she stares at it too long. •
He has such pretty eyelashes.
He has thick black fans that frame
those eyes that make my knees weak
and my heart melt into the mouths of waiting butterflies
fluttering around my churning stomach
every time those breathtaking lashes so much as blink my way. •
don't tell me anything about pretty
and its lazy descriptions
of every day miracles. ~ Lauren M. Garcia
