A Mortal Masterpiece

She sits before me, an infallible piece
A masterwork of bone, sinew, and skin
Defying perfection her fairest cheeks and feminine chin

    Great poem. You have treated a mortal masterpiece as a valuable personal possession initially. But thanks to the metamorphosis, you have decided to liberate the masterpiece for the collective aesthetic bliss of the world. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    the poem is simple yet meaningful..Loving is not owning.Just let it go.He may be broke and jealous most of the times because of being far away with the girl symbolize by aphrodite or venus de milo, but he can be happier and wiser just by letting things happen.I also believe that if two people are meant to be..fate will find a way.
