Beauty killed the beast


Trapped in a place of beauty,
Heart beating wildly,
Scrutinizing gaze of thy soul,
To know if someone is alone,

The whole street grows empty,
But two gazes stood locked,
And thy feet start feeling weary,
Until the beast came along,

Though strange yet mutual,
Though new yet sensual,
The two of them couldn't leave but stay,
And watch each other fade away,

Beauty killed the beast,
For she stands out in all,
He loves beauty and doesn't care the least,
For her beauty strikes them all,

Though it was not meant to be,
Bringing nothing but tears to me,
For her beauty actually killed the beast,
For their love was not meant to be.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
