Sunkissed Romance - Poem by Elizabeth Sheaffer

The smile drew me in
As effectively as any lure.
The upturned corners of your lips-
Authenticity, all too pure.
The eyes bid me swim
Deep within their shimmering abyss.
I stood, rapturous, before you,
Aching for the feel of your kiss.
Rays of warmth smiling down upon us-
Alone, even in the crowd.
Perfection realized, growing by the second-
Too enthralled to speak our thoughts aloud.
Everything I'd imagined all that time
Was now standing before my gaze.
All those nights spent alone, and there I held you,
Our fiery passion alight and ablaze.
You're the sun to my moon;
The west to my east.
Yet, despite all our difference,
Together, we find peace.
Though now my lonely heart
May be filled with demand,
Fate brought us this far-
Our meeting was planned.
We've come too close now
To let it slip from our grasp.
May our futures thus combine-
Let this sunkissed romance last.

    damn! This was very very good....nice to see a fellow younger artist capable of writing something other than straight crap. Honestly when I read this I thought u were prly in your 30's or 40's. Its so well written that I couldn't assume less. I'm not gonna lie, i really like your work. I'm new to this and don't have as much on here as you, but I'd like to hear feedback from you also if you ever get a chance. Anyway, great stuff. (Report) Reply
