Entry for PoAttic 6

I watch you everyday from the space,

That lies between your heart and mine,

In a passionate world do I dwell ,

While treading on love’s fiery lane,

When the dark nights wrap me round,

Scary loneliness spreads it’s claws,

Your image haunts my lonely soul,

I dream of letters for me you scrawl .


Every single word shines before me,

Drenched in your amorous glances,

Can decipher from each curve and slant,

Passions that lay in your tender heart.


Your billet-doux  that you never wrote,

Those vows  of love you never made ,

 Like numerous stars in the ethereal space,

In  my mind’ s eye , Will forever flash.


Each night I sit up and write you notes,

Answers for the letters you never wrote,

Then ask the zephyrs  to carry forth,

Fragrance of passion from silly heart.


Like colourful autumn leaves that fall,

Twilight that sets landscapes on fire,

I will keep singing mellifluous lays,

Answering imaginary letters forever .


What do you think?
