A Certain Point of Beauty

A Certain Point of Beauty


He dreams, breathes, eats and sleeps less well

Than his once famous Spanish mistress and

One time, would be courtesan

He being a poet, a collector of moments

And a connoisseur of beauty

Arranges with a shepherd to sacrifice a lamb


He then considers leaving in the morning

Before her daily rituals begin

Of showering and combing

Of breast and pelvic muscle exercise and moaning

Long before her beauty frays

And leaves her just another extraordinarily

Attractive woman...

          Could be about my lovely Asian wife but I stayed and that was over half a century ago - this is an intriguing write which will live me for some time.

            A casket of treasured words here Neville - - beauty of course is in the eye of the beholder they say - - but those mentioned exercises sound helpful and methinks to try 'em !! Great read.

              Ahhh that moment of descision "should I stay or should i go".

              Beauty, being in the eye of the beholder, can be a short lived quality.

              • Neville

                decisions, decisions, decisions... that is the question.. thank you DA for paying attention sir .. Neville
