The Poet

byslowhand60©

I would sit upon a wooden bench
a candle flickering across my shadow
Ink stained hands penning upon a yellow parchment
Crabbed text telling stories of love and passion
Frozen in place within my own thoughts until
the wee hours of the morning
Time lost, a future beheld in my thoughts of her
A private journal upon which I spill my emotion
for her eyes only.
Scribbled thoughts of love.
