Tapestry, silhouettes and ink

A tapestry of promises I seen in your
shadowy eyes
your silken syllables have woven the sonnet
for our moonlight serenade
the silhouette of Love passed through our loneliness
our senses laced in a kiss:
a velveteen touch of the night breeze within,
carried away on your fragile lips
a rose, a stolen heart, a dewdrop rolling on my cheek
fragments of paradise, the echo of a forgotten symphony
the eclipses tattooed deep on my retina
you in your intoxicating splendor
me, starry-eyed, wooed,
completely lost in ink
gathering rhymes
alleviating beaded sighs of pleasure
poetic delirium on ice
