Curves of a Silhouette

We envy the silhouette
and not the mirror
knowing a silhouette is
faceless, weightless and above all, perfect.

In reality, a silhouette is merely
a lifeless shadow here to tell us
perfection is bliss
beauty is skin deep
and a silhouette,
above nothing else,

is a temporary stencil

  1. I’ve never thought of a silhouette in this way. It was so perfectly descriptive I could picture it. (I’m using the phone app and it won’t let me see the picture)
