Eyes as dark as the shade

Midnight can not evade

Sparkle forming an optical dance

Every step's gentle sway

Darted over my way

Whispered don't be so shy take a chance

She was dressed up to kill

As I died my free will

Floundered helplessly under her spell

Struggling to believe

I've forgot how to breathe

If there's love at first sight I just fell

From the little I know

She tries hard not to show

Battle scars on a soul beaming light

The last time she had dared

Angel kisses repaired

Blood drenched heartstrings cut off in the fight

When the trust did return

Slowing down to a run

Camouflage sought it's secretive place

Any doubters it's true

Only message to you

Have a look at her beautiful face

    A wonderful poem, Stevie! Hopefully she's as beautiful inside as she is on the outside. Sounds like you went on quite a ride!

          This is a spell-binding write. Brimming with beautiful imagery that pulls us into this painting of a poem. There is a sweetness and a loving, almost a healing of hearts in this that captivated me.

          Loved it!

            Beautifully descriptive of one who captured your heart from the beginning. Sounds like love to me.

            An excellent write, tepo.

            I had to laugh at your reply to Michael. Where you use "lunar tick," I often use "looney tick," when referencing some of our politicians. :-)

              Thanks Tamara
