Fireflies

Fireflies

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*
"

Memories of love and another broken heart.

"

Milford Sound in New Zealand

 

 

The midnight sky smiled brightly,

Upon the trees swaying in the moonlight.

Gentle breezes whisper from the shadows,

This will be one night to forever remember.

 

Gems shined along the horizons of the Earth

As glittering tears fell from universal skies.

Telling a tale all their own of distant memories

Held within a trail of flames falling behind them.

 

I stared forever into your blue velvet eyes,

Searching for an answer to a common riddle.

Love's burning temptations, reoccuring dreams

Can I finally consider you mine?

 

The galaxies of us intertwined

For one moment inside your tender kiss.

Fireflies fluttered about around us,

Flickering endless sparks as my heart sank.

 

I captured each moment of you,

And locked them tightly within a jar.

As you walked out on my heart,

I wished upon a star for you to return to me.

So sorrowful and as always you have a lyrical flow about you that makes each piece unique to your hand.

Beautiful, vivid imagery, with a rather romantic mood and amazing metaphors put together in a brilliant piece. The flow is awesome, with a really poetic language that just had my utmost attention till I reached the last word. I particularly loved the fourth stanza, and the reference to fireflies, in a night worth remember, surely a pleasure to read about this dreamy piece.
