If you take something beautiful

and hide it away

will it’s beauty

eventually fade?

If you keep it locked up

hid out of sight

keep it in the dark

shield it from light,

will it’s beauty

turn to ugliness?

Perhaps that’s the motive,

erase all beauty

from this place.

One by one,



we all

  1. Hmmm a flower can wilt and fade, but if the roots are strong it will always grow back bigger and brighter. Like that quote,”You may knock me down, but you’re going to need an army to keep me there.” πŸ˜‰

  2. If you hide it away, it can fade but only if it’s alive, although dried flowers and even carcasses can be strikingly beautiful. What in the world were you thinking about my dear? That’s a rhetorical question. I like to believe Mr M’s answer though.


  3. Beauty lives forever. Sometimes in body, but always in heart and mind. If we all didn’t write poetry and whatnot that would sound totally corny, but it wouldn’t be any less true. πŸ™‚

  5. It only fades if one chooses to be blind. I like all the answers above but it sort of waxes poetic about an issue I always ponder. I think ultimately familiarity can make something or someone ridiculously beautiful, but I also think mystery can as well.
