Amah:Her lit Darkness

All was but to no avail;his findings
Had he sought her depth,her breadth?
Had i had his mind,her thoughts?
Had she alluded her whim veil;close?

Her inspiration as grass;dark,crimsone kinds.
But hers was as waves;legend untold
Crashing frames off a heart coast;doom,
Trains off of melt rails;?,!doubtful
                    unjustified nightmare.

First day was a stair case,puzzle fixed
A bond of worlds amiss:cloned faces,fearful
Both poets;one a lamp:the other match sticks
                     flame set_smoky vapor.

This then a kind never beheld;a legend doubted_
By many but wheels.
This then remains,one hill;i a mountain
But she more stall
A lover,a friend;this,sovereign.
