Fair Skin (a poem)

A vampire

Literally allergic to the sun

Jealous of bikini model tans

Forgetting sunscreen means losing a layer of skin

Applying it until paler than thought possible

The sun comes out and freckles appear

But pale skin lets the light shine through

It is hard not to bear your soul through translucent skin

Easier for love to permeate the heart

One thought on “Fair Skin (a poem)
