As lightning blazes bright
Across the barren sky tonight
I cannot hear your hypnotic words
Of clever seduction
My single barrel pen is empty,
No spicy ink inside to write the verses
You craved so many times
And blew your mind,
Yet the burning desire rekindles
My passion lurking in shadows
For a restless soul like mine
Cannot remain sulking deep in gloom
Contained within the walls
Of a love that slowly fades away
My tempting words will reign again,
Fragrant as sweet blooms.
The crashing thunder resounds
As my heart reawakens
To the grief and sorrow you left behind
The warm flow pumping is a treat for I felt
It would never reclaim the strength of its beat.
Precious words I once heard you say,
Only served to blur my empty, loveless winter days.
My warm body, new and alive
Speaks in sign while my mind reads the words
You were here yet would never stay.
We are content for the many nights we shared
Were balsam to our souls and yes, we cared
Darling, we kiss passionately
And embrace for one last time,
Cherishing the moments of steaming lines
Our souls’ destiny is not to be paired for eternal life
But good friends, though far apart, is just as well,
For if we had said more than was written and read
As lovers our existence would have withered in hell
The strongest winds and rains have passed,
Nature is wise
Only a hint of grey remains
As the storm slowly subsides
The diamond studded night
Breaks into dawn
As the shine of the orbs speaks to me,
“Sweet Darling Child,
Lift up your Spirit and look deep into the sky,
As I am forever your guide”.
