Beauty Amongst Beast - Poem by Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

Even heaven surrenders to beauty among beast
Senseless eyes see the sparkle of primal admiration
Catching spectators even if wet dog $h! + glistened and shined to sun light.

Where do my eyes lye?

I’d lie if I said I never stared at the animals,
But my eyes do not convey my heart.
Monkeys parade as false sharks with no tails.
Playing games with no winner
Eventually all of them fail

I walk with eyes shut to repulse the monkey
And stumble on the path to grandmother’s house.
My heart reveals the true beast within
As my eyes fallow the red hooded woman.
My hunger craves her innocence
Like a wolf to a hare
But my heart only allows me to stair

No beast should taint beauty
Not even heaven or hell

    Love the last two lines 'No beast should taint beauty
    Not even heaven or hell'. Beautiful...your writing is beautiful.
