Tender Is The Night ~ Acrostic X

Through new eyes I see you
Enigma of my dreams
Nearer to me than ever
Drawing me in further
Entranced it seems
Revealed in touch anew

Intensity impossible to capture in words
Silken kisses, satin skin, velvet hardness

This is how you beguile me again
Held in your strong arms
Essence and ecstasy suffuse my core

Now in the crucible of our joining
Iridescent desire paints my mind
Glazing us in heat and hunger
He is my heart’s hunter
Tenderly tearing me apart

Ashes of Love

Word Count: 100

Genre: Story in Rhyme

Shower of sparks, like a fountain of fireflies.

Flaring like a rocket and the stars in your eyes

Summer comes and it goes, more quickly each year

My heart so abused, grows colder. Forever I fear

The sparks dissipate into the velvet of night

The stars wink out in the black hole of a fight

I’m left chaffing my hands over coals to try and keep warm

Drawing the tatters of my heart close to keep it from harm

Love professed, once again is mocked and disgraced

“Just so you know, you’ve already been replaced”.
