The Beauty


Honey!
How sweet you are!
How lovely!
How beautiful!
Alluring, attractive, gorgeous!
I wonder your delicacy, perfection, finesse
I disagree with the poets who use similes and metaphors
to describe the beauty.
I could never find words to express your elegance.
BUT
All these qualities couldn't work.
The beauty remained venomous.
Delicay failed to mitigate the poison.
The beauty remained virulent.
A killer, who killed ME inside me.
