Skies of Youth

Skies of Youth

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

For now we climb the stairs..........

"
 


You once again wore the skies of windy youth

Held in the temple by our roaring sea

Holding on to a call of truth

For the gifts you gave

To me


From a corner of dear evening's quiet beauty

I came to you in devoted honor

You turned your garments here to me

Again the skies of youth

Were your admirer


Expressions were pounding, no time to think

Sunlight would soon be gleaming

If this was a dream, I refused to blink

I wished to stay here

In my dreaming


Who would be so cruel as to wake me now

As I adore the skies, you wear

Let the sun shine upon another brow

For now we climb

The stairs

Twice I read, For I love the beauty, the surface, glides, to near enchantment.Then I blinked, and carried a darkness into this poem, there have been several people in my life I raised to pedestals so high , only to see them turn to pet raccoons ,kicking me ,down and away,or worse.Freida, what a wild life.I hope this poem is enchanted not incestuous.

Beautiful , dreaming perhaps of what once was , afraid to wake and find the reality being left behind. Lovely write as usual.

Thank you Moon :)
There is an enchanting quality to this poem and a feeling of devotion and contentment as you climb the stairs which I am guessing is either sexual satisfaction or moving forward with a relationship or perhaps both? Very well written and flows well with feeling of charm.
