Do not curse love, all you lovers of perfection
Hate not the blossoming spring of affections
Twixt beauty and the beast, inimitable fairytale
As old as time and rhyme, yet never stale
Do not throttle the graceful glow in her eyes
The lady sees stars in the dark gloomy skies
Limpid, her eyes gazed at him in adoration
He, whom the world frown at in derision
Step Back! Let love for such a time as this
Be true; testify that fairytales could have a twist
Let the beauty in the heart of the fair maiden
Shine light into the soul of the loathed heathen
Let the fears of rejection melt in the fire of tender care
Sentiments begone! unveil the naked truth if you dare
Let the petals of true love once lost, gently drift and fall
On the wings of selfless and untainted passion, that’s all.
This is Beauty and this is Her Beast.
