Sadly Long The Night (standard:poetry, 136 words)

A blessing can still make you cry

I stepped into her silhouette 

A hazy dream of blue, awash in her sapphire velour 

Shadows danced in her wake 

Cast from the sparks and embers she creates 

A world melted by her kiss 

Healed by her embrace 

All things that God meant to be beautiful pooled in her eyes 

So angelic to see her face 

All common sense abandoned, heart and soul exposed 

Immersed in every moment, every synapse unclothed 

A blessing be 

She was to me 

If only for a breath in time she had my heart to hold 

To miss before you see 

Means to ache once she departs 

The unintended ashes lying at your feet 

Still glow from her embers' warmth 

If the true definition of pain is our separation from light 

Then now I understand why so sadly long the night
