Lacquered Black~by Norman Wilson



Lacquered Black

Skies lacquered black
Surrounding a crimson moon
With blistering lights aglow
Casting shadows on a shimmering lagoon

Faltering is the outline
Altering in a reflection of a forestry
In the stroking waters, caressing
Gently, before my love and me

Avow was our hearts beating
Before the falling of heaven’s likeness
Mirroring our hearts solely as one
Where passions became carefree and reckless

Clashing flesh, burning hotter than an inferno
Immersed in flaming wanting desires
Beneath a lacquered black sky and a crimson moon
As each glowing star caught on fire

The night is slowly ending
While the crimson moon visibly descends
Leaving us gazing over still waters
Cuddled together as a new orange dawn ascends

  1. Your expressive voice in that last paragraph (syllabi?) made me really think.
