Timorous Me.


The lure of your face
The tempt ebbed in your smile
The sudden rush of adrenaline
Tearing down inside

Emotion soot enveloping
Untapped moments of grief
The heart in fluency speaks
Yet the lips in stutter beats
Mind revving thoughts untamed
Owing to aletheia

How the face lit in sigh
Save for smiles of bitter sweetness
How the eyes your beauty pry
Yonder days of wishful fate
The lips had well rid its fears
Days of relish and sheer fondness

The heart in fluency will speak
The lips in riddance shall beat
Words of untamed emotion
Tucked awhile down mind lobby

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
