it wasn’t a matter for her consideration

Her shoulder was bare 

a bronze shimmer

uncovered by the slip

of her sleeve

he couldn’t help but to gently stoke the curves 

the sea breeze played with rogue strands of hair 

and her beauty was her sadness 

as she gazed unpon the ruins 

of her buried heart 

she seemed inconsolable 

yet defiant 

and a calm peace 

drew him in 

and he loved her in that instant 

like he’d never loved before 

and knowing it was completely hopeless 

reconciled himself 

to her protector 

and keeper 

of her faith

in something greater.

she didn’t move

and he took this for her compliance 

a small mercy

in the tragedy of their lives.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

in the darkest times a small glint becomes a bright sun of hope.

Love it! Romantic

Her beauty was her sadness

the glow of her pouting chin

Though it was sheer madness 

True love had sneaked in

 

With a careful sweet Tenderness 

his heart swept calmly  in

caressing her softly nothing less

As his soul did grin

 

What May have seemed a mess

faded when the sunshine came in

Sometimes hope is  left at best 

to melt away past sins

In Opposition, The Light

Painting it black is a true invitation to let the shades up, turn on the lamp, light a candle. Absolutely! - Enjoyed this one - s'been a while since I saw the male/female principles in one of you poems - nicely woven imagery. - Stella
