Beautiful

I am a rhino.

I am a sieve.

Your the paramedic-

Morphines’ the drip.

You be the cheetah.

I’ll be your keeper.

We could be human,

And strive for something, deeper.

I am a rhino.

I bathe in mud and clay.

You can be anything-

I just want you to stay.

When I first saw you,

I was (so) amazing; confident 

and lovely.(Despite 

life’s bitter ironies).

Then we started talking, – 

and (baby) – I was charming.

I swept you off your feet.

(You let me bask in that façade).

Then, somewhere between Romance 

and Reality-my silhouette 

(was) forged in 

your eye…

(While,) my “I”-

finds you outstanding…

(There is no question, why).

The best things in this world

have been redefined, 

in your image.
