Beauty And The Beast

A pulchritudinous creature
Oblivious to the turmoil
Stirred in a young man's chest
Tamed the beast in me
Sublimating me
From my true desires
Quelling the fires
Redirecting my passions
Reemploying my sexual energy
So we partake
Of the socially acceptable
Exercise our creative bent
Until the time is right
That blessed moment
When love supplants lust
And passion's flame can burn

Taming the Beast

An unusual poem which explores the transition in a relationship from lust to love.
