Just a random thought put to rhyme.

Tempest or Temptress

Where has the whispering wind gone

That your ambrosial essence was carried on?

The sun has surrendered to dark and gloom.

No more your laughter to lighten my moods.

Like a desert tempest against my skin

Without your loving arms to fold me in.

A body sculpted by Divinity

To elicit love, lust, or my insanity.

Your eyes of jade, I can't resist.

They, the most, will be missed.

Windows to the soul and the keys to mine.

Their immortal beauty locked forever in my mind.

Thank you. I had no idea how it would turn out as I've never read a lot of poetry much less written any. And this was my first attempt at any sort of creative writing. I had doubts about posting it.
