In Tilted Mirrors


She was in bed

as I pulled back the sheets,

everything was beautiful

even the majestic trees

graced and sheltered the streets,

I felt so alive,

there was that glimmer in my eye,

we were in love,

and so euphoric was I,

love afforded us complete freedom,

our heart beats were near,

and that music filled the air,

and to me so dear,

her face teemed with beauty,

it was an endless stream of dreams,

one tripping over the other,

then,

dozen of roses crowded

the curtained alcove of the room,

they reflected endlessly in tilted mirrors,

my eyes couldn’t hold anymore,

as the sweet petals

gently fell to the floor,

my face would glow,

and the love would grow,

right before my eyes,

and we knew it would show,

as the prayers of love filled the night skies.

Waiting on my invite, That highly Romantic, interlude, I went flying with the start and then I realized that, it was not a race, you weren't going anywhere, just acted in haste. But that's what wise poets do, they they take you up and then expects you to simply forget, only because they are in charge, Well do Frank I thing I saw the catch here. Trees?

Read it three times , to help clear my head.Saw that pic somewhere.

I am fighting with something, on my end..

Bless my brethren.
