I saw a sunset face
Above a lonely beach.
And her eyeliner
Was the sky.
And her hair glowed
Soft in peach,
As her rouge
Bled into the night
I have to smile
At love's sunset
She always winks
When with style
Flaunting no regret.
Like a haunting minuet.
Just before her arms
Embrace the moon,
Who will swoon
In blue magic beam.
As brightest lemon
Are erased from the sky.
In the twinkle
Of an eye,
Like orange memories
Waving from afar.
The day surrenders
To the night.
As the galaxy
In its net.
Blowing kisses of fire
To dark maidens it met.
Pining fading colours
Of love's sunset.
