Upon a lover's ideal

by Sarah White   Aug 2, 2006

Lame beauty withering slowly
Against the precious life form's arm.
A kiss planted so gently
Upon a lover's palm.

Sweet teardrops of the sunlight
Bathe them in a reclusive glow
A shadow falls intently
Upon a lover's plateau.

Alas! It seems pure nature
Has followed in appeal,
So calm, the world is living
Upon a lover's ideal.

    Beautiful job, I loved the second stanza.

    "Alas" usually refers to something sad.

    Why has this such a low rating? Very well written. Good use of rhyme, nicely portrayed, and the repetition use worked well too. I really don't have a bad comment to say about this. Thanks for sharing.
