Slain by Beauty

I was slain by Beauty.

She grabbed my heart and

Shook me with unceasing and unflinching Love

Until the delusional mirror created from

My tendencies and protections

To see the world and self as

Broken, sinful and devoid of the sacred

Burst into a million shattered shards of dust.

I was slain by Beauty and then…

I became Her.

Wow, Julie, do I ever get this – just as you predicted. I – quite literally – have chills. Thank you for these words and this inspiration today. xo

You always have been Her. And this poem is its own heartgrabbing Beauty.

I am extremely impressed with your writing abilities and also with the format to your
blog. Is that this a paid subject or did you customize it your self?
Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to look a nice blog like this one nowadays..
