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.

"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."

This is a masterpiece, sad but uplifting with choice of beatiful words, this sort of poetry keeps me going. The secound stanza is beautiful. Thankyou. Love the picture

This is a gorgeous write! Fireflies captivate with their mystical wonders... and you have mesmerized me with your surreal love story (of memories) bittersweet.

To mix the magic of fireflies with the magic of love is genius. It is so magical when my children go out in the early summer catching fire flies. This is an incredibly beautiful write, just lovely.

This such a beloved read. I like the descriptions of space and everything. I seriously need to get back into the habit of writing poetry and maybe I can get inspiration from this. I need inspiration these days. And your writing surely gives me the influence I need. Loved this.
