Twitter poetry (7)

I’m becoming quite involved in the Twitter poetry-sphere and might even branch out to Instagram or Pinterest, might need to employ a social media manager!

from love’s first kiss
my mind strolls through the future

gentle touch
and smouldering looks
fan the flames of desire

love’s bright light shines
from the centre of your soul

wild flower meadow
kaleidoscopic view
twisting under sky of blue

nightfall’s dark loneliness
warmed by heaven’s blanket
of sparkling stars

don’t look a mess
dress to impress
and attain success

rising temperatures
destroying coral reefs
pretend climate change
doesn’t exist?

free me from the demons inside
talons ripping, destroying my mind
relentless sinking vision of fear
guardian angels cannot come near
to banish these demons from my mind
leaving peace and tranquillity behind

Happily Ever After
With love by my side
This single moment
Means more than an uncertain promise
Of happy ever after
