With each breath your beauty stops the world,
A momentary pause in this short existence.
A barrage of flowers matches the emotions unfurled,
A collage of colour marked by my love’s persistence.
Eternity cannot compare to your delicate eyes
As I stare into the truth of your innocent soul.
I could proclaim your virtue to heavenly skies
For it is you that makes this existence whole.
The softness of your skin transcends the senses
And your lips speak purest goodness and truth.
Yet– love has conquered these natural defences
And I find myself ensnared by your timeless youth.
And though my heart sees fit to love in silence,
My love rages still with passionate violence.
