tepo

Face

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. :-)
