Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 27
Theme: Love
Subject: Ugly beauty

There is no beauty in a looking glass
Where vanity rules the dreams of the mind
Just an image without beauty or class
Skin deep reflections presenting a mask
Disguising the purity of the soul
Concealing the heart inside a cold cask
So what is love it is not of the whole
If eyes don’t seek beyond the glance to find
What lies beneath the mask and looking glass
Is found in the eyes beyond lines of kohl
Where lust entwines with love to find
A glance gazing deep into beauty’s truth
To a heart discovered by lover’s sleuth
For beauty is not the fountain of youth
