Melodies and Desire - Lykke Li

Would that every jewel could have your name,

That of crystalline perfection aloud.



So that should one ever speak,

Of these flawless glass suns,

all would weep at the wealth of your sound.



Thus only a glimpse would others ever know,

Of your form, and heart, and flow.



Yet with a hint, the world may be shown

A reflection of your heart-spark,

Of which I can never let go.

I hate poets. They always nail it in a few lines. It makes me look bad.

The image of clarity in the first two stanzas are striking and contrast with the glimpse and reflection of the last two. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

Thank you very much for all your comments and the compliments, I really appreciate it. My apologies for the late acknowledgement as I have been preoccupied lately with many things that have slowly eaten away at the time I could spend on my computer. Anyway, I find all your feedback encouraging and inspires me to keep on working on my poetry.
