I saw your face today I saw it yesterday too Forgive me Symmetry means nothing to me So many have similar features But not a single difference What do I focus on? People say you're gorgeous I guess, like barbie Not a single line or scar But gorgeous is looking at a face Seeing every separate feature And falling in love with every molecule From the crooked cupid's bow That makes you want to lean in And taste the smirk playing on Those lips To the wiggly worm eyebrows That you just want to straighten out Massage away the frown lines With your finger tips Eyes, dancing in the light, Deciding daily what colour they wish to be Hazel or Heterochromia The distinct nose that might Have been broken before It's strong, this centrepiece The jaw that is, and yet isn't, As sharp as it dares to be Each angle giving pause The sharp groove between lip and chin That makes even a smile look dangerous Sharpens even silence into an answer I did see your face today Just like I saw it yesterday Forgive me, Symmetry means nothing to me.
About the Author Atlas Booth is a writer who lives in Cape Town, South Africa. He has been published in several lit mags. He enjoys an assortment of tea's and cold brew coffee. For more information on his work, visit his website: https://atlaslbooth.wixsite.com/main About the Artist Dave Nevard grew up in a family of artists. His mother reproduces classics by painters such as Van Gogh, while his brother is a brilliant realism artist. His own highly emotive style stands tall within the genre of expressionism. Nevard has been aptly described by various press critics as producing a complete mix of work in the manner of a "scatter gun", of being "dark", "explosive", "fervent" and "impassioned". The results of his often fast-painting process depends entirely on Nevard's mood of the moment. Sometimes his art is full of angst, sometimes uncomfortably twisted, bleak, desperate or occasionally tinged with black humour...but whatever the tone, it's always guileless, warts and all. "For me, emotion is more important than technique" he says.
