Second Look Ahead

By the terrace is an archway smiling Blazing in the sunlight there’s life lying Painful memories mixed with joys as this Heat encroaches the places nearby here Walkway to a seeming inviting square Though it seems powerful, I surely miss There’s a black cat strolling across the way Seeming to meander near me today I would like to see him stay here, I wish No matter how much of the gloom might be The sun shines with its warmth I surely see I feel her come to me, my love, a kiss Shadows may form on the wall, so I cry But never does it freeze me, lest I die I will not avoid nor will I dismiss Formed in my life are two sides that I see Some burning and others cool to touch me Terrace is the portal, I’m not remiss

    I liked the idea of a terrace as a portal, Russell and the contrast of two sides! Cute putting a black cat in there too!
