#Candle Lights

Over candle lights
Dim, diffuse yet meditative
Two eyes meet
And search eachother's soul

The candle light discreetly hides
And still beautifies

Over the candle lights
The perfectly rounded cheeks
Meet the firm jawlines
For, in the candle lights
opposites unite

The warm, bright light
Romances and melts
In the arms of the feminine night.

    To write about romance has been always a popular thing and yet very few poets have succeeded in capturing this mysterious spirit of romance, your write is indeed a good try, I liked the way you presented the tension of moment caused by opposites, well done! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
