I joined Fanstory in 2008 under the handle "alpacalady". I've taken a few breaks here and there, due to house moves and sometimes finances (lack thereof) but am now making an effort to keep my subscription up to date.

My new name Gypsym - more...

A look in the mirror causes conflict...
"Conceited or Just Hopeful" by Gypsymooncat
You are bountifully beautiful, oh yes you are
the bounty of all that is bonny
so bountifully beautifully bonny
are you

You are incredibly intelligent, yes you are, truly
your intelligence is inspiring
so incredibly intelligent
are you

You are amazing and awesome, oh Lordy you are
others are amazed and awestruck
by your awesomeness
oh yes they are

You are slim and so sylph-like
so sensuous and sexy for a sixteen-plus size
sinuously, seductively stimulating
and sylph-like are you

You are not getting old, you are graciously greying
your hair is quite glowingly gorgeous
and graciously grey
that's what it is

You are smiling with teeth that are white, not yellow
no, they're egg-white coloured - like yams!
That ain't no yoke
so it ain't

But the cracks in the mirror cause quite some confliction 
and you can't concur with capricious reflections
so copiously conceited you are...or
just hopeful...are you?

Writing Prompt

Your poem can be of any length and genre.
Oh, you are... are you?

Author Notes
I hope those who read this enjoy the total silliness of this poem and the over-use of alliteration. Otherwise...I'm screwed...I are, lol!

"Capricious": given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behaviour.

Thanks for reading!
