Beauty & The Beast

He gawked at me as if I was the prettiest woman he’d ever seen.

Every day, he found a new way to compliment my beauty.

It wasn’t my external appearance that kept him intrigued; it was what he saw internally that sent a signal to his heart.

The signal that said it was okay to let go because I was the one.

His hard exterior shattered revealing a softer side, but when we made love, the look in his eyes let me know I was still fucking with a beast.

My ‘Seed’

As the seasons passed, I watched you grow.

Finally, I understood what it meant to feel alive.

Whenever I felt butterflies, it was you saying, “hi.”

For months, I watched as you rested on my side.

Though painful, I was happy you were keeping me aware you were alive.

You blossomed into the most beautiful being I’d ever seen.

Born with a crown, you’re for sure a King to be.
