Awakening

-

Touch, how tenderly the image is gazing

Upon the limned surface so clear

Kiss, the brilliance of a reflection fading

Crying out to a love that won't disappear

-

A small smile mirrored with content

As the ripples vanish, no longer seen

Dwelling into each lascivious moment

Lost to drunken tranquility and dream

-

Hush, how gently the tears of joy fall

Upon the face stained with satisfaction

Linger, sweetest serenity now enthralled

Caressing that image of fake perfection

-

Incandescent, those eyes burn with desire

Realization dawns and leaves the heart aching

Twisting within the calm waters, an ignited fire

The vivid image of a sudden awakening

-

"My dearest love, eternally true

This reflection I can now see

My dearest love, please, don't leave

For I am you

and. you. are. me."
