Phantom Romance

Beveiled, thou Phantom of Romance ,
Ensconced behind a cryptic door.
Might thresholds cross by happenstance,
Entrancing hearts forever more?

Unshackle now that cryptic door,
Thence leave behind life's remnant scar.
Unfettered lives forever more,
Enchanting muse sung from afar.

No longer wield life's garish scar -
Embrace free spirit - never eschew
Those songs of romance once afar -
Enravish reverie anew.

Life's bygone languish now eschew.
Embrace embroiling senses of
Awakened reverie anew.
Entreat now hearts imbued in love.

Arousing senses bested of
Once covetous feigned sanctity
Entreat hearts ever imbued in love
And cherish regaled ecstasy.

Entrust in realms of sanctity
Stars crossed are not mere happenstance
Enclave love's arcane ecstasy
Unshrouded, Phantom of Romance.

This is beyond perfect for the contest. The wording, the content - the totality of your write flows PHANTOM. I could hear it. You did an excellent and impressive job, Kristen. I have to say something eloquent: WOW. I can't imagine this not scoring way high ... CayCay
