Beauty & Beast

image

you wouldn’t expect the beauty to shine

so brightly in her darkness

it is the beast that burns within her

giving her that intoxicating luminescence

no, you say?

beauty is the light and beast is the dark…

look closer

the beast within us all

pushes us to the edges of our limits

and beyond

the beast within beauty

forces her to seek out the pleasures

that might escape her

the beast

the spirit

the id

makes me, drives him, pulls her

to search through

imagination and knowledge

for the light, peace and magic

that are the truth and meaning of life

if you don’t believe me

watch yourself

as the beast within you hibernates

for when he is at rest

those are the moments when the world turns

without color

when I am

complacent

content

comatose

then

I look inward and whisper

to him, to wake

and when he does

I am alive, once again

I am ferocious

I am vivid

I am

invincible!

  1. There’s a philosophical conversational tone to this. Like a slightly drunken conversation with a stranger that changes you. Lovely work Mel
