Beauty Lost

A Poem By Kathleen // 12/20/2013

He gave her not a crown
He gave her not a diamond ring
but gave the shine of his eyes and
a broken moonbeam

They’d say until her ears ran dull
that the sky’s limit was only
as high as towers could reach
and stained glass windows were nothing holy

And everything they understood
they couldn’t understand
too empty to know that
beauty’s too free to lie captive

in your hand.

Everything is lovely about this. It gave me the feeling like I was walking through an old book shop.

a broken moonbeam"
