NaPoWriMo ~ Day 17 ~ Nocturne

The prompt at NaPoWriMo today is to write a poetic nocturne.


Your Glow

When you are with me, there’s magic in the air

The world seems to sparkle with glitter

Perhaps it’s fairy dust, who knows.

The only thing certain is that life is sweeter

With you in it.

When the hour grows late, and the stars light the night

They can’t compare to the sparkle in your eyes

As you look at me in that way, which only you do

Eventually, our time winds down and you take your leave

In your wake, there remains a smile on my face

And a slight chill as the space that you filled cools.

A little piece of me always hates the goodbye

Yet there is no room for melancholy to set in

For I know that you will return soon

With your ready smile and soft lips in tow.
