dusk arising

silent night


smiling with the butterflies
laughter enlights her cobalt eyes     
glance ecstasy personified
in barefoot dancing pale levi's

.       as outside silent night sweeps by
.       in duvet slumbers dreams i lie
.       where years desires carefree fly
.           till dawning's kiss
.                    of sweet goodbye

each motion making mockery
a passion hence denied in me
till lovers final harmony
enraged my thundering timpani

.        as outside silent night sweeps by
.        quiet calls a stifled cry
.        memory time cannot deny
.              of dawnings kiss
.                      and last goodbye

        Perfection on a piece of paper. I'm quite taken aback from the beauty in it from the first word till the last.

            Thank you Christina. I think it must have overpowered some, it appears 24 people viewed it but only 5 have commented.
            Definately heartfelt you are right there. All the stuff of dreams is from our hearts after all.
