Timeless

Spread the love

Time froze, moments after, we first met
as though dew drops unto bourbon rose.
I sigh as words lie suspended in mid-air;
as hour passed deluded by your winning
smile.

I gaze as love traced lines upon admiral
skies, mesmerized with glimmer of your
steadfast walnut eyes. Know one cannot
be wary – before you even time draws in
its breath.
