Made Of Matches


Roses are white
Butterflies are blue 
The ballet of my love for you
Dances and dribbles
Leaps and swivels
Twirls and swoons
In full bloom
Heat of the sun
Light of the moon
Hearts become puddles
As secret cuddles
Nuzzle and snuggle
Beneath sheets of
Riddles and puzzles
Scarlet Begonias
From the Mars Hotel
Glisten and glow
Turning to Gold,
The Yellow Brick Road.
A hextech pirouette
That’s heaven sent
Lakes of grace
Ponds of swans
Steeped in song.
Starry eyes, Silent night
Bewitches me, myself & I
When I wish upon a star
It’s Heart to Heart
Star-crossed love
Reigning above
Streams of destiny
Igniting vociferously
A symphony of infinity
Sweet nothings
Into the breeze
Of molecular biology.
Living next door
Confucius fuses
Souls and chords
A mighty roar
Soars towards
East meets west
Boats of molten
Verboten oceans
A tempestuous romance
Built to spill, built to last
Chōchin are red
Manjū are blue
Meet me in the middle
Of chapter two
Oh how it feels so real
Lying here with your spirit near
Only you and you can hear
When I say softly, slowly
Hold me closer
Dreamboat Annie
Let’s sail the galaxy
Defying gravity.
💞 The sweethearts 💞
