Beauty and the Beast.

You're beautiful, and I cannot trust you with hand picking beautiful things for me. The fault is not yours though, but that my view of beauty is forever skewed, and look who is responsible.


And why I cannot trust you with choosing beauty? Because you see everything and find it beautiful. I don't and I am helpless when you do it, I am.

 I am ugly!

Sounds like a paradox!!

More a struggle of the mind.

What a fix? But it is a lovable post :)

Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder... And that says it all... :)

Believe me, u r b'ful like her,may be more!

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

If I told you the whole story, then it is kind of cute. But that is not what it should be about, and I am afraid, you missed it :)

My mind is overjoyed in accepting such a thing :)

I never longed to look through her eyes, that is why I am helpless when she calls something beautiful, I pit it against her, and it is not beautiful.

Indeed, I am hiding facts :)

Is it a fix? Alas, all beautiful things are confusing :)

You nailed it :D

That was a last minute entry, wait, thank you for correcting me, I'll do it now :D

Sum1 is appreciating sum1 else whole-heartedly or is deprecating own self!

So,trust,when shez handpickn things 4 u dat dont suit ur eyes, she myt b trying 2 make u b'ful in ur eyes! :-P :-P

Two sides of the same coin..Loved it!

Soumya said...

Back here after long and what a post to stumble on!

A simple thought, expressed wonderfully. Its all in the eyes of the beholder. What is beauty to me might be ugly to you and vice versa. Very few people get that.

Its nice being here :)

Jyoti Mishra said...

Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast..

Both in the same mind.. equally intense but opposite.

Joe said...

Beauty and the beast are one to say the eludes while the other preludes pain...but if you turn them over you see them transform to what is unseen and untouched...
Lovely post Anshul :)

Maximum conveyed through minimum and that leaves a beautiful imprint in the mind of the reader.

This is not a fable, and the tag is "Fiction Reality"

@Red Handed
Thank you!

Yes, its true. Thanks for dropping by!

And I see meanderings divulging from text to rhymes ;)

Err what? :D Thank you!

Thank You!

AnicA said...

WoW !! I'm out of words for this one !

Gargi Gupta said...

Confusing..I guess I didn't understand the whole thing Short and crisp yet looks like it has a deep meaning.

S. said...

I couldn't get it :(

Aparna (Life Takes) said...

It sure has a profound meaning

Saumya said...

Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder...n 'she' should not be the reference frame or a standard...

Menachery said...

the picture was true to the post... Its beautifull.

kehte hain ki ghalib ki nazaron se to kaante bhi khubsurat lagne lagta hai, kyunki agar woh na hote to phool ki kadar kaun karta ...

Beauty is def in th eyes of the beholder. Loved the post

Suruchi said...

Hmmm, mind games or word games Anshul?

Beautiful and ugly-just perceptions!

u take pleasure in confusing your readers, right ???LOL

i guess now i know how ugly feels

Perspectives said...

How much longer for the next post? Suffering from a writer's block or too busy with work?

I have to agree with your post though, beautiful people should not be given the task of picking things- "Noble should keep the company of noble people". Btw I am interested in the person whom you don't trust with picking things? :P

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

@Autumn Leaf
Thank You!

Oh no, shallow words, meaning should have been obvious.

You're not the only one.


There is no room for doubts, it should be 'should' :)

Us Gaalib ko kya jawaab doon jise har zarre mein mehboob ki tasveer dikhayi de? :)

That is for you to know Ma'am :)

So they say! Welcome here!

Oh do I? Or it is the failing judgement that confuses?

I ain't any writer to suffer from such blocks in the first place. I've stopped planning posts. Some are here as drafts, some are still figments of imagination waiting to be penned down.

Someday I'd show you the people whom I cannot entrust this job, till then, it stays this way :)

It's not always the physical beauty my friend. Think about long run and you'd get the answer straight :)

Hi AB, how are you?

Paradox actually. I had to read it twice!

How lovely!
takr care and have a great day.
God bless and be well.

Unknown said...

I can't see the paradox. I can relate this to a person whom I used to know once :(

GoldFish said...

But wouldn't everything this person picks while putting her/his mind to it be beautiful too? Because beauty isn't skin deep, is it? I am confounded with your dilemma.
