Of Love And Beauty


Your unguarded portals
Dazzling like dragonfly eyes
Your demure smile
The estuary to your endless stream of kisses
Your flawless ivory visage
Effervescent like springtime
Your monsoon fragrance
The quintessential petrichor
That converges my lips
To your lissome neckline

For you are an incarnation
Of the muse of god
That sculpted the face of Eve
A goddess on earth
Strewn with dewdrops of desire
Laden with a cauldron of fire

For your flawless visage my love
Bequeaths on my world
A sense of immortality
For I am a titan
On our turquoise globe
Tamed by your efflorescent smile

For beauty is my Achilles heal
My lump of kryptonite
That monopolizes my heart
Under the guise of love

For beauty is skin deep
So is anthropogenic love….......
