A Modern Usage of a Commodity
If you are gorgeous
If you are pretty
If we turn to look at how shapely you are,
Then you will be corrupted if you are porous.
You cannot trust all of those who feel they must jilt you
If you are lithe and cute, then they have to have you
Like a song on the radio they can’t get enough of
Until you are overplayed, you are turned off, and you grow cold.
Any warmth in comparison
Only leaves you scared of being burnt.
If you are a youthful god-
If you resonate the longing of despair and jealousy
Then the chances are that someone waits sorrowfully in silence
Who’s loved you all along and has to watch you
Slowly fade as you become progressively more frightened
Of being beautiful.
