Silhouette Poem by Alison Mujati

Silhouette



From the bottom of my heart

To Shut them eyes

Deep dawn tucked in cool weather

star dots reflecting within eyes

Feet gaining ground across a tarmac

A mini Airport runway

Towards a mini aeroplane up we go

Hand to hand, palm to palm

Two to tango

She feels the chill, she grab my arm

Love poured from her eyes

I gave that back in return and more
.
I took off my leather jacket,

gave it to wrap her shoulders.

My grey trousers suited a slim-fit shirt

Promise to see this just in her mind

We go overboard on the plane

In Silence but I know our hearts beat together.

In one accord

I pilot high up in the pitched sky

Above every tower on the ground, we leave.

She slip to my shoulder and let her head rest there.

Her heartbeat bashed a rhythm

Beyond fear, beyond doubt

A soft comfortable tempo

Whatever I did to her was working

Looking down, light bright dots waving.

Heading eastwards, the horizon shows magic.

A crimson of glamour adorned with flecks of fading stars.

Your eyes are teary with passion and I'm visiting a wonderland

Going as if this is the last journey of our lives

We could be heroes, I love dawn.
