Beauty was on my  steps this morning
So I invited her inside
Just a glance and my heart was soaring
So exquisite and dignified
I was lost, enraptured by her splendor
Tasting salty tears  flowing from my eyes
To be allowed such a glorious treasure
I felt my spirits rise

Torn between keeping her or setting her free
And I couldn’t let her go
Selfishly, I rationalized, she was a gift to me
Some how I just know…
So I kept her a prisoner inside
And beauty began to fade
My shame can no longer hide
Beneath the mistake I made

Beauty died in the night
The  realization stings
I bound her kept her from flight
Beauty flutters on fragile wings

Oops, sorry, I have been missing from action for a few days and I missed your serve.  I still want to play.  I'll try to stay tuned next time.  Thanks

ok Danny I'll add you to the end of the list  

 Mystical being
which makes ink flow
Surround me in
your incandescent glow
Fill my brain with
thoughts and rhyme
As I try to capture
but a moment in time
~Shan~
