Beautiful Mirage

by SashaMirage   Jan 8, 2009

Lying in the hot desert, shaded by love
Whispering words of romance in your ear
Envisioning a moments seductive shimmer
On the horizon of life deep in your eyes
Dancing around me, spinning in circles
Moving to the drum of my heart's desire

Quenching my thirst from deep within
Silver clouds rain down forgotten tears
Filling the Nile running through my veins
Getting so close I can see through you
You seem to float far away from my eyes
I take a step closer trying to reach out

Finding it all a dream, a beautiful mirage

    This is such a beautiful poem. A really unique idea, writing about a mirage.. i dont think ive seen that one before so awesome work. I really liked the description you gave of the mirage.. if it werent for the title then i wouldnt have had any idea until the end that it wasnt real. I liked the title though, it really made me want to read it.
    The flow was really good also.
    Keep up the great work :]

    Wow this is absolutely beautiful.I love how you use the desert's mirage as a metaphor,
    comparing ur desires with it. At times we see things that we want to see though it seem so real but when you close to it, it's all in our imagination.Excellent job
