Shadows Of Silence

Image Source

I look at you through the fire
As my heart skips a beat
Your aura is enveloping me
Along with this naked heat

This camp fire is setting the mood
Oh my love, now come to me
Ignore this ignorant crowd
For once, together let us be

Why do you look away
I know you feel the same
It is about time we accept it
I'm tired of playing this game

Your chocolate skin invites me
I want to feel the taste of your lips
Your dark hair is driving me crazy
I want to run my fingers on your svelte hips

I see the passion in your eyes
Isn't it time that we accept it now
Why are you letting it slip
Aren't you seeing the signs sent from above

I have never felt love like this before
Life has been beautiful since then
Let us have a tale together
Our love story I'd love to pen

How long before you understand
When will you ever speak a word
I have told you all that I felt
Were my voices never heard

I don't know what else to do
My feelings can't you sense
Can you hear the sound of my heart beat
Or is it lost in the shadows of silence

This poem is written for the Wordy Wednesday #8 at the B-A-R.
