Beauty and the Beast

Come hither, cried the beast.
‘Let me ravage your soul’ said he.

You are an enchantress, I am caught up in your spell.

‘Mercy’ weep the beauty, I am not mere flesh and bone, I have a heart which belongs to someone else.

The beast smiled, I never asked for your body alone, I know I have to capture thy heart to make you my own.

Your soul is precious and kind, your flesh is a beauty divine.

‘Mercy’ howled the beast, save my soul.

Both were cognizant of each others pain, but to save other was to drown thyself.

Hence, forever they lived together yet apart, in contempt yet content.
