Shallowness

To Expect Beauty

Is it wrong

to anticipate enthrallment?

To precipitate involvement

with a figure such as she?

Made of dreams

cradled by a man who's deplored

while his subconscious is explored

with maddened longevity.

Call it not

as you would such crimes committed -

their grisliness kept omitted

for the sake of family.

See it true:

loneliness subdued by beauty,

the duty of the mind to feed

a starved heart with fantasies

to save it.
