BEAUTY AND BEAST

Beauty and The Beast

“Belle is originally hesitant to interact with the Beast,
but after he develops a more civilized manner,
aided by enchanted furnishings,
a bond is formed.
The Beast falls deeply in love with her,
but is in denial that she will ever love him in return.
Belle is soon granted right to leave on behalf of her sickly father,
who tries to rescue her.
But after denying Gaston her hand in marriage again,
a mob of villagers, led by Gaston, plots against the Beast.
After a grueling tussle between Gaston and Beast,
the Beast is fatally stabbed.
Gaston falls to his death when he loses his balance.
Belle is able to lay the Beast on a balcony,
and he dies in her arms.
Belle confesses her love for the Beast
just as the last petal falls from the enchanted rose.
Belle’s love for the Beast revives him
and releases him from the curse,
and he along with his furnishings
return to being human.”

Body

Highest good
Innately
Resident within
Both of us.

And honesty
That pursue,
Persevere
And penetrate
Into the core of
Our mutual
Sufferings and
Ecstasies
Gently
Unwrap
Tentacles of
Unnamed
Wounds
That have
Stifled and
Shaped our
Shared stories.
