Pale Honey - Poem by Solene O'Brien

He was pale honey
Paler than honey was the night
Softer than satin was the light, from the stars.
Eyes were blue diamonds
Brighter than diamonds were his eyes
I listened for the tender sighs, love was ours.

Our love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
And at the end, long was the glow.

Of pale honey
And in my heart I know
That he would never go.
