Summer Nights

Folder: 
Beauty

 

 

Blessed be thine eyes,

As I gaze upon the night.

Taken back by the beauty;

Everything silent, adorned in light.

 

Blessed be thine eyes,

As the moon lusters long.

Dispensing magical hours,

As the crickets sing their song.

 

Blessed be thine eyes,

Seeing the calming wind churn

Pieces of places and people

Eternity we will burn

 

Blessed be thine eyes,

The moonlight grass sways

Fragrances of firewood blossom

The sky has everyone’s gaze

 

Blessed be thine eyes,

Little bugs filled with light

Randomly illuminating

This faultless summer night

The clock ticks
&I tell you tostay
With little or no hope
For somekindof “next time”
All those daydreams
Of you and me
Andourchildrenandourbeautifulhouse
And all those nights you’ll never get to walk me home
As I stumble and make stupid jokes
About how you can’t cook
Because you can’t
Not because I know this
But because you never have
At least for me
Andyouprobablyneverwill
I lay there with you
Waiting for the right time to turn
Becauseitwillwakeyou
Andyouwilltakeit as a sign
To restart what we did last night
And at dawn
And a couple of minutes after that
As you pulled my hair
I couldn’t help but think
Abouthowgooditwouldfeelifyoustrokedit
Away from my eyes
So you could gaze at me
And give me that smile
That we all long to smile
But that’s not what I’ll get
Andtobehonest
It’s not what I want
At least from you
I won’t pretend like this is anything more
Thanwhatitis
Because this is all that I want
At least from you.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Odd spacing is all on purpose. Came out that way when I wrote it so I kept it that way.
