Your Beauty is a Bitter Pill

your beauty is
a bitter pill;
my lover, my friend.

in all this world
i’ve never seen
curves like yours.

i’ve never tasted
honey so sweet
or felt a breeze

so gentle, as those
moments, precious
and few, spent

in your arms.
and with haste
i will swallow you

whole. the bitter
and all – in the hopes
that your comeliness

might finally heal.

    something about this poem makes me ache deeply
    amazing, ugly/beautiful, like the ugly is the beauty.

  2. I read this with two opposing viewpoints and, being the marvelous poem it is, it becomes two different poems. Magic. I love the word comeliness — suggestive of an older, sweeter time.
