A quote from Oscar Wilde.

It's not what's


behind the allure


of her eyes,


but the blunt


blue smile


the visible sparkle


of azure light.


 


It's not


the spectral machinations


of some hidden muse


but the words


that delicately ink


her pages-


Her voice


definitively heard


the cadence


the soft inflection--


Leave all the torturous


subtexts


the speculative darkened


cul-de-sac


for the tangible,


before my eyes...


that's where the


enigma lies.

So, the first verse is Oscar's and the second is yours? Love the moody melody of the second, you mused well! :)
