Real as you so delicately seem...

I savour you only in my wildest delusions

 

Your rays culminate into beams...

You illuminate hate’s very confusion

 

You fill embittered hearts to the brim...

Healing souls that are ladened with rejection

 

Come true, I bid you my dream...

Or I shall sleep still in your sensuous delusion

 

I choose to hold you beyond the rim...

As I fear to wake and find that you were but a dusty vision

 

Enter into men with lights so dim...

Detonate your soothing aura to full saturation

 

Make of my gloom, a glamorous gleam...

Even as my heart becomes your lofty habitation

 Enjoy Valentine's week and don't forget to comment on our post and even submit one yourself.
