The power of Cyrano


As Cyrano doth speak so well,
His words to you I’ll try to tell.
One harsh word and I would die,
A loving embrace doth make me sigh.

My soul to paper I do write,
My heart wanes from your very sight.
With pride and doubt I hesitate,
For fear to see what doth await.

I am a shadow…you my light,
That guides me through a darkened night.
I long to hear each breath you take,
Everyday for you my heart doth ache. 

I love your beauty but more your soul,
To hold you forever a wonderful goal.
It must appear as if I’m insane,
For such a strong love to still remain.

 Impassioned thoughts of my love’s embrace,
Noble and damned I plead my case.
What’s in my heart I truly must say,
How awkward I live wishing for you each day.

 Oh … such a tawdry display,
To showcase my love this way,
‘tis only for you I longingly need,
And cautiously inside I do take heed. 

To live my life a reflective dream,
For an unfinished love’s admiring gleam.
Forever overcome by my love’s true grace,
And of his eloquent smiling face. 

Ah…to hold you again as lover’s do,
Gives rise to my hearts despairing ado.
For I have but only one life to live,
      And it’s with all my love to you I give.

Beautifully romantic.

Romantic...hopelessly so...and there certainly is nothing wrong with that. The world could use a lot more. Nicely written.

There it is again. That window which so recently afforded me a glimpse has now opened wide to a reveal an absolute beauty and I'm transfixed by it's graceful movement and elegant expression. Once again you've brightened my spirits and for that Fawn, I Thank You
