Vanity - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Though skin deep
The sanctuary of the temple
To metamorphose
Man to a sentinel
Guarding his shrine of youth
Like a lioness to a den
As a soul seeping with hubris
Professes a love that transcends
Even the gaze of Narcissus
To capture on the face of a mirror
A mirage of Adonis
