Heart Shaped Canvas

By Leith Plunkett


                             Fragile as a flower shedding a tear of morning dew

 

becoming

                                   warmth’s

                                                                   embrace

 

My first taste of love was your lips

 

 

 

Lustful as fire angels tearing at the seams of night

 

temptress

                            to the

                                                    fireflies

 

Our love burns brightest

 

 

Lost

In eyes of opal hues

This is what dreams are made of

 

On the canvas of my heart

 

Your name

                               carved

                                                          immortal

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