The Burning of a Torch Singer

The Burning of a Torch-Singer

Her smoky vocals draw you near,
escaping from her eye a salty tear,
wrapped in memories of his  caress,
still wearing her thin satin dress.

Luscious full lips and ebony hair,
a troubled heart full of despair,
watching her beauty and youth unfold,
waiting for a  phantom, growing old.

Her hypnotic melody still captures all,
sad delusions perhaps he will call,
her voice hits crescendo like nothing is wrong
no longer the singer, she is the song.

    Wow... beautiful and so true for so many singers who are not in the limelight anymore, but still have a beautiful voice...

    Hi Liz.. This is a beautifully written work that most definitely merits the winning recognition you received. I've been on the road and just now getting around to reading and enjoying these inspired lines.. A belated congrats to you dear friend!
