Poem - Beauty is the Cause

I’ve admitted on prior occasion that I am addicted to beauty. I am glad it is part of the human condition as I take inspiration and a degree of fortitude from God’s brush strokes in my world. The poem “Beauty is the Cause” is a tongue-in-cheek review of my feelings, though I must admit, it is not too far from the truth.


Beauty is the Cause
Poem for Day 327 – 20151124

This poem is my ramblings
of a man struck down by you.
You captivate my senses
as only a goddess may do.

Forgive me if I compare
your beauty to all things.
The world pales by far
when you by my side.

If I was half as handsome
as you are once as pretty,
I'd be twice as handsome
as any man alive.

It is a chemical reaction,
just like that bad cocaine.
Don't think me the druggy,
that's what Harvard has to say.

My breath is taken away,
I don't know when I'll breathe.
Perhaps when you take your leave
my breath will return to me.

If I were an character
of anime screen portrayed
my nose would bleed and bleed
when I see your face today.

My words come to their end,
I’ve quite stammered on.
Forgive this fool his actions,
your beauty is the cause.
