From the Beauty to the Beast

“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
In secret, between the shadow and the soul” – Pablo Neruda
You lay hidden in my heart’s loneliness
Afraid of letting my demons go
I love you for your kindness
And your wounded spirit
I know it lies beneath your cold gaze
Our Love’s perpetual minute
They will hate you for the life you live
For your unforgivable rage
But to me you’d be a realization
Like blessings to a sage
I hate it that it aches my heart
To see you weak and sad
That I want to stand up against
A world that calls you mad
At length the world will see what I saw
And with your heart unbroken
And the love’s dark shadows
Will now beckon a glorious sun
