Keeper of my Light

Keeper of my Light

Stealth dancing

Your shadow on mine

The twirl slow

The breath low

Abated sunken in teeth

Touch diffusing heat


Grasp my arm

Fend off from me harm

The days yarn

Needles work

Into my heart as they smirk

Un-assorted pairs


The eye stares

Into my bosom

The head spares

Grow me hairs

Of whiter melancholy

Love’s monopoly


Brittle game

The players like darts

Launching pad

Wicked fad

Flame thrower sprucing the ends

Hate makes no amends


In love’s sight

We sighed like children

Hiding toy

Breathing joy

Theft of innocence galore

Pile me more to store


Move the whim

From my bleeding shore

Bury dark

From the bright

Swirl out of my mind’s delight

Keeper of my light

  1. damn you can write. I NEVER ever make a correction suggestion on a piece. HOWEVER, perhaps you would consider revising “Fend off from me harm” ? Something is “off” It is the only miniscule hiccup in your tempo of this very fine piece. Sorry, my OCD is acting up tonight, lol
