Forbidden Beauty

The mouth opens
and closes, blinking
the pink of the tongue.

To gaze upon the body,
forever stained,
rain-cut from rock,
softened by pain.

The word preceded the image
and cast its purity
murky, biblical – marble skin
wrapped in artifice,
a rigid statue.

Angels are eternally young,
just blossomed from the grave
and ready for flight.
Do not look, lest
you turn to stone.

Ronald Terry works as a technical writer in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. His poems appear in Spectral Realms, Star*Line, Bete Noire, Poetrybay, Dead Snakes, Night Cry, Space and Time, Amanita Brandy, The Horror Zine, Eternal Haunted Summer, etc.
