To Rule My World

You don’t need ocean eyes
or               sun-flecked hair.

Neither               a body soft
as a pillow         nor a smile
that lights up the night sky.

A figure that fits into an hourglass
A walk that sways the trees to fall

none of this is necessary.

To rule my world
it’s quite simple:

All you need to be is her.

    This is so beautiful and so true. We want the one that embodies the divine for us. I love the form this poem takes, like a vessel with a few perfectly rounded breaks.

    We live in a materialistic world. But truly the best things in life cannot always be seen; however, they can still be felt. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I really really really appreciate it!

  4. It feels like a lullaby to calm the fragile mind. So soothing Ben.

    Thanks. Thanks. “Lullaby”; “calm”; “soothing”. I like these words!

    This was really great to read, especially in a society that seems to only care about looks. Love it!

  7. Acceptance for who she is, with all the love, that’s most important. Your words beautifully conveys this thought Benjamin. So refreshing for today’s times when people are overly obsessed with beauty!!
