Zero’s love poem to Octavia.



Her hideousness is evident
To all who dare to look
Her loveliness is more discreet
Though hardly by the book

To feel the thrill of holding
Her soft body in my gaze
Keeps me enthralled for hours and hours
That turn to days and days

She’s hideous to others
But she’s beautiful to me
I see through her exterior
Into her dark beneath

I see past all her fallacies
Into her deepest soul
She takes me in her pincers
And relinquishes control

She’s hideous to others
But she’s beautiful to me
She’s hideous to others
But she’s beautiful to me

Beautiful to me
Lyrics ©2006 Andrew L. Jackson
