Deceitful Beauty



To you, my breathtaking mountain
I taste the mystery you portray 
with one foot placed on your jagged edge 
I begin this trechory 

Shadowed with insecurity 
your tyrannical attributes profound
if only to gain momentum 
to slow a heart that pounds  

In Autumn's sweet demise
where your beauty shrouds your rage
one step to grasp the summit 
a careless slip...my life you take...

To you, my breathtaking mountain 
I rest without a trace....

    very nice portrayal of that mystical draw that mountains have, I have stood on many heights many times pondering and never seen it quite as clearly as you illustrate
