THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

  

We were meant to be nothing more
than the compliment to you,
calm and considerate
not the conqueror;
covetous and carnal.

We were meant to be nothing more
than the guardian of you;
grateful and gracious
not just gluttony
grounded in greed.

We were meant to be nothing more
than the homemaker in you;
humble and harmonious,
not all harmful,
hungry and hoggish.

We were meant to see the beauty
and not become the beast.
