\"\"Plaguing Eye With Hidden Desires\"\"

There he sits perched higher than life, luxuriating in the moons gentle rays. Muscles lax, but eyes alert he scopes out the area. His jaded eyes move in slight twitches and contractions until something catches his gaze. The ebony winged beauty shifts his weight, though continues to stare. Life dancing around him in a flawed blur, fore the desired bird was the only thought on his mind.
Following his melting gaze a precious dove is in his view. The alabaster feathers glisten brightly, and dew coated wings shine in the moons light. Her eyes sparkle with a sense of mischief and jovial curiosity. His stare goes unnoticed as she focuses on catching prey, a crawling meal to extinguish the burning sensation in her stomach. Chirping slightly as a night crawler grazes her beak, but slips away.
The night continues on between the two, the avid watching and harmless frolicking. Time ticks by with out notice nor worry. Other birds rest on the primed lawn and twisting branches. Chatting ideally amongst each other in series of chirps and tweets. There’s other doves just as comparable to the one he fixates his life on, but they aren’t good enough for him. Only her the promiscuous being of his daytime nightmares.
Finally as the sun begins to crest the tree tops, the fragile dove flies off leaving the magnificent raven staring at nothing. As he averts his gaze a single drop of deniable dew slides down his chiseled face.
