Tonight is the night

Oh! sweet verses of love, how gaily you recite tonight Ballad of a pretty woman, lauding her knight tonight. Rewarding entreaty, granting wish of love’s fantasy, Tolling bells of glee, angels of bliss will alight tonight. Thinking of romance beneath twinkles of euphoric stars, Oh, I'm overjoyed, how quixotic feels moonlight tonight! Pursuit of love endearing desires, anxiously inquires: Will the blushing smile of beloved-eyes excite tonight? On pillars of ardor, I built your castle of passions, Will blossoms of your flowering longings delight tonight? Voice of love that wrote our story, ruminates joyfully: Embracing dreams of lovers, two souls will unite tonight. Words of prophecy announce in epistle of romance: Blazing fervor, spark of fervid hearts will ignite tonight. Exulting in ardent kiss, as your name keeps calling me, Existence of this prince vows to melt in your sight tonight. Dazzling my zeal, seducing me in your sexy appeal; Burning flame of my heart, your flirting eyes invite tonight. Ah! our night shines in divine halo of Aphrodite, Saluting love’s promise, epic fable we write tonight. September 12, 2020 Placed 1st: Ghazal poetry contest by Silent One Fourteen syllables per line (howmanysyllables.com)
