Awake I lay
at hours dark
withering rose
the hours draw on

Actions of the day
I now oppose
shame I bear
for the love I feel,

strings of a vine
I intertwine
your rays briefly touched
but the moon shone bright...

You were sweet to see
a lily of the day
but like the tide
I'm drawn away
The moon is my first love the sun are those that distract me from the darkness of the loss of the moon (if that makes sense)
Beautiful, her name does spell
Ravishing, her eyes may seem
Adorable, her cheeks to squeeze  
Totally, undeniable
Greatly does ponder
Exactly what is he?
Enigmatic at most
Knowing of all
Too many sick, seeping through my pores
Too many insects, they creep through beneath
Too many stolen, blown like the leaf
Millions, oh millions, they are my thief.

Too many hits, taken on the cheek
Too many times, stuffed up my rhymes
Too many aches, time after chimes
My words have fallen, locked up for their crimes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~­

Why so many ended, but never time mended
Why so many lies, only turning into cries
Why so many spoken, but never fully awoken,
My vital organs left, unmended and broken

Why so many standing, with no kisses landing
Why so many pale, heat left all stale...
Why so many pining, for some underlying
See my face I beg you! see that I am... trying!
So I'm figuratively dying, but I just can't stop trying.
Seriously it's causing me, to even start crying.
Leaving me breathless, I even start whining
I sit silently on the rocks
as water leaps
upon my feet
the little grains
so many
so fine
find their way
to reach me here.

Just as once
your eyes did so
alluring sunset
pure they glow
though did I
ever know?
how they brought me
no hello.

Admired only from afar
but warmth enough
like the star
your eyes they held me
an embrace
I did not long
for words
no sake.

Deep emotions
but eyes they'd flee
Full moon upon
the misty sea
mine were drawn
like that
you see...
We once were there amongst the lilies
Where innocence blossomed and cherubs listened
To hear the sound of fabled whispers
For all that loved, there was enlisted

Thereupon the toadstools listened
Wicked creatures, for their emissions
Taken aback by hopes and visions
Sharpened claws and stood their mission.

They brought upon an early winter
They scared away the hopeful dreamers
Lilies withered, faded we shivered
The light remained for only minutes

Alas, he to was out of vision
Off he flew, though there she waited
She planted roses, thawed the snow.......
Wondering if they'd ever grow.

I sit silently on the rocks, as water leaps upon my feet, the little grains, so many, so fine, find their way to reach me here.
Just as once your eyes did so, alluring sunset, pure they glow, though did I, ever know? how they brought me no hello.
Admired only from afar, but warmth enough, like the star, your eyes they held me, an embrace, I did not long for words, no sake.
Deep emotions but eyes they'd flee, Full moon upon the misty sea, mine were drawn, like that, you see...
