Heart Shaped Canvas

By Leith Plunkett

                             Fragile as a flower shedding a tear of morning dew






My first taste of love was your lips




Lustful as fire angels tearing at the seams of night



                            to the



Our love burns brightest




In eyes of opal hues

This is what dreams are made of


On the canvas of my heart

    I love the formatting in this. It really gives it a featherdown quality, soft, dreamy.
