#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

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
