Nature of the Night

Donning upon all of those midnight flares
Marked assuredly by the baseless cares
Trespassing over the basics of wind
Smiling she gives chills to defining send

A sophisticated brightness of light
Outside the nipping nature of the night
Complexion of the evening enters me
Over the supreme moon’s sincerity

I collapse over the dream laden bed
Smelling the damp odor of hearts that bled
Maybe the moonlight can affect our hold
Heavy breathing envelopes us all cold

Burning my eyes by the gazing surprise
Secrets holding captive seeing them rise

Russell Sivey

    Hey Russell !! It's been awhile since I've been on the soup and yours is a page I had to visit. So happy I did as this reads like fine wine, smooth to the mind and tasty to the tongue.
