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.

The midnight sky smiled brightly,
Upon the trees swaying in the moonlight. - I think that there is one 'midnight' extra, repeats too often in such short time,
but taken all considered, it is great! smoothing, tender and an easy introduction to the real topic-love. love it. :)
