The Death of Beauty!!!

Take your seats
Ladies and gentlemen
As I take you through the holy trip
That blindfolded the eyes of beauty

It happened on an evening’s night
In the mercy of her sister’s hands
With the temperature running
A little degree of the hellish paradise

She poke her eyes out
While pushing her off the plain cliff
She thought no one would see
But the no one saw the see

The fumes on beauty’s gown
Lived to tell the see
Of the ugly skin
Imprinted on her silk

Lest I forget so soon my friends!

It was suppose to be a fun-filled climb
But her undivided heart could not wait
To bury the charms
Boiling with a cool flame of wrath

She couldn’t
She couldn’t my friends
She couldn’t wait to carry out the wonderful deeds
The good deeds that tells the tale of beauty’s brief

Therein lies the body of beauty
Wrinkled on the land made of peaceful leaves

MO.

One Response to The Death of Beauty!!!

  1. Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! “How beautiful maleness is, if it finds its right expression.” by D. H. Lawrence.
