Our Velvet Starry Sky


Our Velvet Starry Sky



Do you ever wonder?
When stars fill up the sky
And you are I live parted
Do you chance to reason why?
How destiny can deal this fate
When lovers hearts are tied
The moon aglow and aching
Our eyes fill up and cry
You look up at the stars each night
And I on my porch swing spy
The twinkling of a starry night
Our hearts n'er parted, but entwined
Then a  certain kind of magic
Envelops your heart and mine
Where our love shall know not distance
And souls can turn off time
We then shall take each other
Slip into a tight embrace
And whisper sweet devotion
For our love spans time and space
But as we close our eyes each night
Under the same velvet blanket of sky
We can only dream on moonlit nights
Two lovers, you and I
Author's Notes:

For the lover of starry nights

Cindy dear, I never responded to this enchanting missive because I'm so shy.  However, enough time has passed for me to muster the courage to say thank you, so very much.  with much love, noah

p.s. It was for me, right? Please say so, or I'll get a gun permit if they overlook the felony bookmaking conviction, take some lessons, and shoot myself in the foot (probably just graze the pinky toe, but it'll draw blood).  On another note, I hope you're well and thriving.

"Where our love shall know not distance

And souls can turn off time

You have shown here how desire

is a wonderful thing even in loneliness.

A starry night embraced with a dreamy girl. Yep, life don't get any better than that. Beautiful Write Ms Cindy Bendel!

I like how you invoke emotions in this write by using the night, stars and the moon. It all ties together well and your rhyming scheme is not forceful, which is sometimes difficult to avoid.

Heartfelt love poem. Nice quadrants with endwords of line two and four rhyming in each quadrant. Well constructed.

One guy, who is apart from you, knows not how unlucky he is. He should thank his lucky stars to even be considered in the same wisp of clouds within your starry night.....good job Cindy and Henry.....Paul
