The Goddess Of Light - Poem by Kendzi Samuel

What pleasant brilliance my eyes behold!
Wavelenghts of light beyond my threshold
Electron light my heart excites
Into daydreams and insomnia nights
On the sun as throne, the moon crown
Arrayed in galaxies woven as gown
Rays of beauty ne'er been described
Ignites a craving, a yearning thrived.
The warmth of her smile, ne'er been felt
The glaciers in my veins begin to melt
The sparkle in her eyes set mine ablaze
In a dreary haze, she ignores my gaze.
