Blindspot | A Poem

Blindspot (n)

– an area or subject in which a person lacks understanding or impartiality.

This is inspired by and dedicated to every girl who doesn’t see or understand the scale of her own beauty. Send it to them as a reminder.

You were always shy
Hiding under false lashes
You with your bold lips
Sharp tongue
And sharp cat eye
You seem to have
A blindspot
For your beauty inside
And how it translates
To that dimpled smile

Don’t run from your reflection
Stay a while
By the riverside
You with your flower crown
Blending with the wonders
Like you were drawn on a canvas
