[Poetry] Pretty

She says she’s not pretty
But if only she knew
The way I bite my lip
When she smiles with hers
The way she teases me
Like a taboo.

She says she’s not pretty
But then her eyes lock on mine
And in them I see
Every reason I need
To know why I lived
All this time.

 Written for Day 8 of NaPoWriMo, with the prompt of repetition.

Me: Um…why did we skip days 6 and 7?

Muse: Because I don’t like the prompts.

Me: Ah, I suppose the prompts were pretty difficult. 

Muse: Pffft, they are not difficult. I just didn’t like them. 

Me: Yeah, because they’re difficult and you couldn’t inspire me to write anything for them. It’s okay, everyone has off days—

Muse: Off—Off—I am a MUSE. I don’t have OFF DAYS. YOU HAVE OFF DAYS. 

Me: Well, I can’t argue with you there.
