Nov 2014
A moth with purple luminous sheen-ed wings
Fell in love with a flame, enraptured by her blush
Wished to wrap itself around her limbs
Gently caress her, such was his crush,

It ventured forth
Dying to explore her contours
Touch her ethereal glow
Aware that his serenading hum
Seduced by her fire, hitherto unsung
The blue mesmerizing core
That he could never explore
The sanctum sanctorumโ€ฆ

The wings now charred and singed
He writhes in pain yet ecstatic
He would rather be a โ€˜had beenโ€™
Than having lived a life, unseenโ€ฆ
Dedicated to my dear friend Debbie Brook :)
