beauty beholden


tonight..
i've been ambushed!
by your memories

this tired body had not heart
to do battle after dark
and while i lay battered
nursing aching wants
in mists of warm waters
You came upon me
at once my paramour
and my enemy

my mind jarred
my heart forgot
to beat
in rythm with
tired monotony....
and i heard you whisper my name
and your lips sung the same
tune to which my love swayed

'You are just so beautiful
today
as you were that autumn day
when i first held you
and
when i first kissed you
'You are so beautiful
each day
as venus, marble etched
lovingly carved and gently held
in the palm of creation
to be worshipped
and forever kept
suspended in animation
through time in my senses
'Oh but youre beautiful.........'

and i drown
into the fantasy that is me
through the words that are you
and surrender
to the love you made me feel
for myself, when we were real

oh but You were beautiful
to have made me feel
this beautiful
for sculpting me a mortal venus
for loving me that achingly
oh but You were beautiful

oh
but
You
were beautiful...
