Leonardo da Vinci – Mona Lisa

who are we
deep inside?


should the outside matter?
(more than our inner selves?)

are we pretty to see
but rotten to live with?

Inspired by the latest Almodovar movie The skin I live in.

  1. If one so great was ever to paint me, I would cringe in my grave centuries later over the debates about my femininity. Can I not just be the perfect woman?

    You are so amazing, Nanda! I love your little poems, each and every one!

  2. I’ve quickly seen the first glance most physically beautiful women become hideous and the physically normal become very beautiful as I see what’s inside. And yes, I’m referring to beauty as seen by the eyes partially determined by what is seen in the soul.
    I love the poem!
