A night alone

A night alone ,
Time to steal,
Hold her tightly ,
Make her real,

One with an angel ,
Shadows thrust,
To sleep forever ,
This moment I trust,

I wake to sunlight,
My angel has gone,
Heart now empty,
Later, she will come , 

Coveted in thought, 
Minds purest sin, 
Another night alone,
Will let my angel in,

But why must this continue,
Love only in my dreams,
I've searched inside reality 
No angel seems

    Hello once again Paul my darlin' friend. Such sadness and longing within your hearts many times we have only felt loves soft touch in our dreams and not in reality it sadly true is it not? You write beautifully as you convey your thoughts and sadness.

    I've not been on here for a while. Apologies for taking so long to reply. Thank you for your lovely comment. Love as the love you desire is difficult to find in reality, or so it seems. I hope you have found, or do find yours x

    This was a very sad and beautiful piece. I really love it because I know what that feels like, and it's not fun. Good imagery and work.(:
