Partialism: Skin


Prestine.


You must've figured out how to ride your bicycle on the first try;
Never once falling off...
Your even-toned complexion must've never faced sharp edges.
Never been rubbed wrong by rough surfaces.
Never been bitten by parasitical evils.

Laborers toil beneath the hot, merciless eastern sun
to bring an offering of olives, oils and creams to your bathroom
to bless your flesh with herbs, stones and flavors

I can't lift my eyes
I can't seal my lips
I can't keep my hands from touching
The perfection you've been wrapped in since birth...

@Donn M: I think that's why I'm so impressed by perfect skin...I also have blemishes from insect bites years ago, I have a bad allergy thst results in hyperpigmentation...

But don't feel inferior, there are so many different dimensions to the quality of skin: softness. luster. complexion....I'm sure you have beautiful skin!

Oh I feel so flattered! I didn't think to have a speech prepared!
First of all I would like to thank the Academy, my adoring public, and all of the little people who helped me achieve beautiful skin...
St. Ives moisturizer? Without you I would be nothing. Baby oil? ::tear:: Ambi Fade cream? big up.
You like me. You really, really, REALLY like me! =0)

"Yo Toddy, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Forbidden has one of the best lusters of all time. One of the best lusters of all time!”
