Sinking Beauty - Poem by Ken Bennight

Felt I am to fall so hard,
the knife she twist aint pretty.
Damned I am to be dealt this deal,
its payment falls beneath me.
The beauty held by all the Queens,
eight eyes still none a winking.
Cannot up-rite the ship that floats,
to deeper depths than thinking.
Her beauty leaves me sinking

    We do think deep bringing forth all the complexities of the soul, sometimes we expect too much from beauty...10 (Report) Reply

    Where all agents of our senses fail it's our thinking that continues its journey. A deep and thoughtful poem...............10 (Report) Reply
