demersi sunt in vobis – drowning in you

by eloisedesousa

Dark velvet wings envelop my consciousness
Only stars in my eyes illuminate
The night time of my existence
Everything else falls back in sharp repose
Spotlight focused on you.

Slits of yellow shine in exuberance
Laughter gurgles from serrated smiles
Annoyed by their untainted delight
At my expense, my love
Disturbing our private enamour.

Life’s purpose falls out of perspective
Friends fade into oblivion
Sweet velvet darkness
My blanket of comfort and division
As I slowly drown in you.




By Eloise De Sousa (2014).
