[ CC ] The Byronic Man

 
It just so happen'd by tender age five † †
fingertips uncover'd growing passion † †
finding more of himself to be alive; † †
† †  
ladies' undergarments were now in fashion † †
causing childhood'd wonderments to thrive † †
( thoughts only adults tend to imagine ) † †
† †  
Catalogue'd, art tastefully flashbulb'd bright † †
Seeing was believing, deceiving mind † †
into notions that women creature'd night † †
† †  
casting spells upon men become resigned † †
to capture beauty with slavish delight † †
---fondling every curve front, side, behind ... † †
† †  
perhaps with pencil n paper likewise † †
† †  
Many years after, slow to realize † †
bust'led lace'd figures were but a diguise; † †
† †  
for in each boy there shys a girl who lies † †
awake until the late hours under skies † †
starry, wishing to be stilled art, fully † †
admired † †
† †  
Ironic, thinks the Man, Byronic † †
† †  
He shuts his eyes, tired † †
† †  
† †  
† †  
Awake, hers open † †
† †  
She sighs † †
† †
