My love is not shallow

To hell with Maybellene

To hell with Clinique

To hell with Olay and Dove

To hell with Glamour

To hell with Vogue

To hell with Cosmo and Elle

I married you for you

Not an airbrushed

Image of someone’s fantasy

The expectations

You put on yourself

Are self-inflicted

And unneeded.

Too many women believe men place more weight on outward appearances.  Even though there are some men that cannot get past a person’s looks; the vast majority look past the shell of appearances into the beauty of the soul.
