Dante Dawson


Tree Woman


Light sets the backdrop for the scene
The image she envisions shines with glee, for she knows her intentions

Elona,
For you have the eyes that calm her mind and the voice that soothes her soul
Watching ever so calmly as she becomes shaped into as existence

Elona,
Your glow has brightened as your face becomes sketched in time;
In time, In years, but only moments pass between us

Aeliana,
Now i see the fire that burns in you heart oh how much you have changed
Nature would be a imbecilic fool for not capturing your essence
No it doesn't serve your master justice for her love gives you roots
and her gentle hands stimulate your every fiber

Meri,
She turns to me yet i dare not lure into her trap
her gaze would test my pride
a stake i cant risk
Details so delicate how can i judge thee; no
but her creation smiles at me

Fyora,
Three names have shown for me since your creation
yet none fit the beauty for thee
has light not touched my shoulder
has her virtuous mind not touched mines for i see no solution

Life is beyond the reflection of time in your hands
Sacred it must be for your name i would hold dear
tree woman of mines

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
