Great Beauty

Walking by you don't notice me
But I notice you

Your walk is graceful with no effort
Your walk is in spite of the world around you
Your walk is like a dance
Your walk is a back and forth conversation between your feet
Your walk is nothing less than beautiful

No one else notices but me
I am your protector
Against the world which surrounds us

You talked to someone
Who was deemed to have dreadful intentions
So I protected you
I made them go away

I sent you an image of your beauty in its most raw of states

You saw it today
Why did you have a look of horror upon your face
Why did you call those shielded men

I am your protector
Me
No one else understands
Your beauty
Your gaze
Your walk

You left me
You have abandoned me
You. Left. Me.
Me, your protector against the awfulness of this world
WHY? HOW DARE YOU!
But don't fret
I will save you

I found you!
The joy overcomes me
I must make sure you are safe and protected
But you seem to believe your elders will protect you
No, I will prove you wrong...

They sleep so soundly
They could never protect you
But I can
And this is how I shall prove it!

I hate to see your beauty in tears
But it had to be done
To show you how wrong you were
To protect you
Like they never could
Although I am doing this partly to punish you for leaving me
To show you your wrong doing

You run again
Haven't you learned
I thought you were smarter than this
I'm doing this to PROTECT YOU
ALL OF THIS IS FOR YOU!
WHY DO YOU LEAVE ME SO?!
ARE YOU TRYING TO ANGER ME?!
UPSET ME?!

There you are!
I've found you again!
Like I always will…

I came to you to show that I am here to protect you
To make sure you didn't run
That you understood
But you didn't
You threatened me with the shielded men
You think that SCARES me
Nothing will keep me from you
My great beauty
I am your protector

But you wouldn't understand
You wouldn't listen
You ran
With your beautiful stride
Away from me!
Your PROTECTOR!
Why have you done this?
Why have you angered me so?
Look what you've made me do!
You've made me send off my Great Beauty
Where I can't protect you.

The men in shields take you
But I look over you to keep you protected
From them
Those who will never understand your beauty
They will never understand what I see when I look at you
You are my Great Beauty
You rest in a beautifully lined home, I make sure of it
I wouldn't let you be alone.
I bring you the flowers that match your crystal eyes
An ocean of diamond
My Great Beauty
Why couldn't you understand?
Why did you refuse to listen?
I am your protector.
