The Fluorescent Beauty

In the depth of night
beneath illuminated sky
my glances kiss each jewel
spread hither and thither.
Sparkles steal my heart
and stitch it on my dreams.

In the awe of splendour
a luminous aura from afar
embrace my presence to glow
and swoon off my senses beyond.
the trace for pleasant chase,
unfold an ineffable delight.

In the cosmic remoteness
the fluorescent beauty
princess of ethereal space
clad in white translucent
reigns amidst infinite stars
emits an eternal charm.

In that tranquil hour
through cool mist
the surreal charisma
with all her benevolence
bathe my weariness away
and put me to a sweet repose.
