Beauty

A socio-psychological ideal
Preconception or perception

Based on a lack of flesh here
Or a plentitude of it there

A cleft or projection
The sight of which brings

An emotion or feeling
Desire or attraction or joy

For some reason
That can only be explained

By examples of itself

Like a diamond
Little intrinsic value
Yet prized

Unlike a diamond
Impossible to define

 

—————– NaPoWriMo 2012 Poem number 9 of 30
