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