Poem : Treat Beauty as Such

Beauty, Literature, Original Work, Photography, Poem, Poems, Poetry


The allegory about us
isn’t clear because
there are pieces missing.
We have to make sure
life will be as easy
as it can be.
Time is of the essence,
so they say, and
holding onto ‘Right Now’
isn’t worth much when
compared to youth and freedom.
Your beauty has captured me
but instinctual hesitation
is asking for more.
It’s asking for
the security of happiness.
Trying to mold life-long joy
out of loneliness
and a wretched past
won’t produce valuable art,
which you are without me.
And, who would ever throw
paint on a masterpiece,
which you are.
Let’s place you in
the right hands
because I love you.
