Analysis of Mid day drift...



Although, her beauty like flowers
drifts...
         by there...
I must contain, myself.
from falling to pieces
this vase in mind
I have for us...
red, red roses in bloom
Etched on it
Like tatooos gently
about that ankle...
pine, I must while that beauty dazzles
Under trees from afar...
Graced that sun, in flashing lights
between the limbs
As she steals away
with my heart...

alone, I am there...
elements trickling like leaves
of sunshine...
Or from my heart
Petals are everywhere...
