Once in a millennia
My soul finds one like you
Who sets it aflame with a look a word
Who makes it crave
A touch a home
Who creates wistful oceans
Calm and red
With her ardent caresses lay to rest
My restless soul spirit awoke
For my wishes
A lifetime of dreams and hope
That at the end of times
I’d sail before a thousand moons
Just for a chance to be with you
I’d lay down with the sun
For endless nights
Of kisses and fun
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
@Wicked_Brightness always follows the dark Isn't that the way of things?
The last struck an exposed nerve. This one suggests a sigh of relief. Each, in its own way very emotive. The imagery is brutal, and kind, and sharp, and vulnerable. Thoughts on joining the last two into a single one? 🤔
You described something so subtle and deep in such a unique way, I am amazed, I am thankful, I am blessed! Keep penning more such beautiful pieces.... I'm indeed speechless after reading your composition.
