Golden rays fleeting through, letting the warmth seep into your bones, white sheets against your bare skin, joyous chirps of young sparrows and the aroma of sweet bitter coffee and burnt toast wafting through the crisp morning air.
Nothing stirred; nothing sang A fortress of ancient trees - centuries untouched Entombed souls in its woody heaven. Dappled anisotropic light; a mystical beauty Flecks of shimmering gold, thick lush greenery. Whispers of wind rustled the foliage
A divine sight -this unexpected serenity Yet prickling with caution Something buried deep down; Something sinister Shrouding a presumed leafy paradise Beneath everything, obscured a seed of evil.
I stealthily stepped Along dark and intricate corridors Walls lined with somber tapestries Led deeper and deeper Into the ebony blackness Dark and eery chambers Black oaken floors Comfortless antiques tattered and unkept Dusty draperies adorned the walls I breathed in an atmosphere of sorrow There was decay in the air
That one silent moment between the two That one warm hug, that one kiss Sealing your moment of white being mixed with passionate red Both unaware beyond your bubble of serenity And it feels so good to be alone; a constant binding with you
