Beauty – Author Markus Fleischmann


He, her heart’s liberator

Shackles shattered by his will

Sarcophagus heart reanimated

Runes etched upon her soul deciphered

She bathes in his rain

Cleansing her past pain

She, once a trinket

Now his priceless monument

Art crafted of heart

Tears cried in pain and shame

Flow freely of desire dreamt

He won’t carry her to future told

He constructed a paradise world

He won’t catch her fall

Take away reason of all

He won’t watch her crumble to dust

He strengthens her with his love

In her heart’s tomb unknown

He made his tranquil home

Unpainted walls scarred and mauled

No longer form a broken heart

He relinquished her tortured mind

Given the light to shine

Accepted her flaws

Made them facets

Gemstone beauty her assets

Her own mirror reflection jealous

Of her new found attraction

Cocooned soul free

Beautiful butterfly of perfection
