:::Mystic Kiss:::

In the Darkness there is light
Smoky air filled the night
In the darken sky with sparkly sprite
The glowing enchantment of her blue filled eyes
Beauty, Alluring… pulling me in
With her spotted yet captivating skin
With her long lashes and
Spotted freckles on her pale olive skin

Without a voice I just can’t comprehend
She covers her lushes lips
Only to blow me a mystic kiss
Dragonflies are magical creatures
that’s floating in the air..
If you don’t stop and look
they sure will disappear.

Is this my imagination…and now what do I hear?
Loud thumping noise coming from deep within
I’ll just have to take a deep breath, before I begin….
