i think i might be a bit shallow – Rachel (Patient and Kind)


I think I might be a bit shallow

Because I love to judge a book

By just how beautiful

The cover has been made.

Hardback, with pretty little end papers

That give the most subtle of clues.

Where will the story go?

And will my main character

Kiss the girl at the end?

The most beautiful of books

All stand on show

Like a catwalk of models

While their uglier sisters

Hide just behind them,

Make up brushes in hand

And jealousy burning

Through their sepia pages.

Yes, you can call it quite shallow

But I cherish these beauties

Regardless of content.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
