Rita Pal Poems
Take Me Away
Take me away with you to the sunset's fire. Take me away with you to dreamers desire Take me away with you until the stars are a pyre. Take me away with you to our soul's island
Smile Once More
Smile like the summer suns Smile like the solar fires Smile like the starlit nights Just smile once more
Field of Dreams.
Field of Dreams Meet me in a field of gold Where the sunlight rains
Kiss of the Vampire
Lock me close to you for all my eternal lifetimes. Love me locked to you till the ends of dreams, My sunrises are handcuffed to your twilights. Capture my thoughts for I am your prisoner,
Fly From Me
Fly from me to sunset dreams Fly from me to Saturn's rings Fly from me through diamond rains. Fly from me through solar flares.
The Butterfly Whisperer
The secrets of daylight butterfly Embroidered within its wings
Thief Of Light
In the days of spring roses; you gently kissed my nights, You were gone when the summer breezes whispered gently To the secret garden of delicate pink and scarlet trysts Where rain kissed roses sparkled in diamonds at first light
Kiss on a Rose Petaled Bed.
Will yours be kisses of death? Will yours be kisses to haunt? Will yours be kisses to taunt? A touch of spice, a twist of fate
In your days of silence, your mind speaks to me through millions of crystal raindrops, In your days of absence, your mind walks with me through fiery thunderstorms, In your days of darkness, your mind searches for me through stormy rainfalls in battered forests I see your wall of silence, laced in your secret collections of crystal raindrops
The fire in your eyes drives shivers through my soul. It is the same sky of night-lights that flickers in the dark For there is a glimpse of your saddened cracked heart Lost in a forest dreams, locked with its casket of tears
A Handful of Daydreams
In the dead of night, silence cracks Nightmares haunt with demons dare Hourglass frozen in crystal fear Gravestone laced in fated days.
Seas of dreams in turquoise silk Quilts the sands of distant time Mermaid trysts with ghostly sailors Haunts the nights on turquoise bay
Sleep Tight Candlelight
Sweet darling, when all the days Have deserted you on earth, And you fly with the angels of heaven To dance with sleeping satellites,
If only the world shut down So I may sink into your eyes. If only the clocks stopped To lock my hand in yours.

Take Me Away
Take me away with you to the sunset's fire.
Take me away with you to dreamers desire
Take me away with you until the stars are a pyre.
Take me away with you to our soul's island
For there we will meet by the sunrises of fire
For there we will remain locked in eternity's lair.
