Behind the Cloak

Will you miss me when I'm gone
did I mean anything at all
as darkness turns to dawn
clasp the shawl  of early  mourning
came with no hazardous warning

Too afraid to gaze into my eyes
as my ghostly spirit passes by
in the light no place to hide
will you turn & walk away
broken heart  would you pray

On bended knee,  in despair
reveal yourself behind  the cloak
haunting chill fills the air
will your words make you choke
on salted tears, craving a smoke

No need for a sympathetic  apology
symphony of my life, playing on a violin
deliverance,  heart- wrenching  eulogy
memories, faded photos of another time
peaceful  harmony , melody of wind chimes

Taste of sweet wine,  poison upon thy  lips
love is a tragedy, Romeo & Juliet
desiring  to grasp the cup, indulge in sips
tis, not our destiny to decide, tragic fate
toast to everlasting peace,  open the gate

Shower Me With Words - Poetic Idioms hosted by Kelvin

Shower Me With Words

There's many a true Words
spoken straight from the heart

Take my Word for it ..
would I lie under a moonlit sky..

Actions speak louder than Words
take my hand show me what you mean

Tell me your inner most secrets
I promise not to breathe a Word

Your beauty is beyond Words
I am at a loss for Words

Your voice is music to my soul
I hang on to each Word..

Some Words are spoken in jest
but,  actually ring true..

Them are fighting Words
put away your boxing gloves

Mark my Words
tomorrow is a new day

What's the Word
the Word of the day

What's the magic Word
open sesame to dreams

A Word to the wise
be careful of your Words

A picture is worth a thousand Words
let's paint one with vibrant hues

One final Word
try to live by your Word

dVerse - Sedoka Prompt - Eclipse

eclipse wikemedia

haunting melodies
float free in a velvet sky
your songs echo in my soul

eclipse of my heart
softly swaying to the beat
surrendering to desire
