Treasure Island

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.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
