Love's fading ember

Eyes like fiery coals

Glowing in its cloudless sky

Such allure that strips bare my soul

Leaving me scrubbed of all pretence


Didn’t your smile invade tonight’s dream?

Tossing and turning couldn’t evade your image

Finally surrendering when desire filled to brim

Inert feelings that sprung to outbound life


How can I not see with eyes closed?

When your imprint stalks my mind

Though you say we become uncrossed

My heart raises and falls only to you


Desperation darkens my soul’s fort

For light, that originates from thee

Is now cast in doubt some doubt

Laying hurt where smirks should be


Hush! My dream cast kitten

These quick tears raise storms

That floods compassion within

And washes aside presumed scorn
