Poetry challenge #12 ‘Change’

Beast drapes his shoulders
His scornful mothers whipping tongue
Tells him he’s unlovable
“It’s he who’s the broken one”

Her death does come
He mans the gates with heavy guns
Believes he’s unlovable
“He’d only break someone”

They all got stuck here
Inside his long door’d corridors
Believing he’s unreasonable
“Not where love belongs”

Grace came to the gates
They were towering and safe
Believing she could move beyond
“Is this where I belong?”

Beast sees her eyes
She drinks deep his soul
His blood brings her love
“We’re no longer broken, we’re one.”

With love,
