Nightfall

As nightfall comes near
I lay mesmerized
enchanted by stars
lost deep in the sky

Darkness surrounds
as stillness seeps through
entranced as I fall
in love with the view

A breeze gently sighs
upon my soft skin
soothing my angst
as thoughts rise within

Immersed in this realm
releasing my dreams
watching them float
beyond the unseen

Repose has been found
while kisses from high
bring whispers of hope
and all through the sky

Empty

Emptiness
is only a word
until every day is immersed in it –
soaked in the loss of you,
aching for your warmth beside

Emptiness
is now my heartbeat
taunting life to disappear –
quenching hope’s glimmer,
leaving me parched
and

empty
