The Lover

I have cringed at your deformed nose,
And flinched from your bulging eyes,
I did wince from your disfigured smile,
And quivered from your eerie voice.

Yet I sought comfort in that twisted nose,
And found life from the piercing eyes,
I’ve drawn hope from the crooked smile,
And held desire in that hellish voice.

The world taunts me for loving you,
For you are the most beautiful woman to me.
