Free Verse # 336 (she wore his love)

Like a sleepless night
I stretch along your shore,
my moonlight curving
along your seabed
raises your waters
into a citadel of fire.

~

Here I stand
without a shadow to cast
into the fading light of dusk,
my poem a rose
wilted from waiting.

~

Dawn,
inside my ribs
cold hands
shaking,
lulling out a star.

~

The day’s first cup of tea…
this vaporous breath I send,
a shawl wrapped around your body.

~

She wore his love
like a veil
unseen yet glowing,
transfiguring the world;
those who saw it
failed to understand.

~

Soaked in mist…
her skin a sea
of aching flowers

~

White night…
the moon in her flesh
a stream of fire

~

His touch in her skin,
a flame without a hush
burning…

~

Perfume is the flower’s victory; silence, poetry’s.

  1. Beautifully put into words! painfully sweet, definitely worth the time reading. I have written a few poems about love. I hope you read them and tell me what you think. My native language is not English but I aim to be better at writing in English.
