Let Me by Liyona

The shadow

 

Slowly stretches

 

Across your lips

 

Let me

 

Lie in your beauty

 

For a few fleeting 

 

Moments

 

The smile

 

Suddenly swims

 

Within your eyes

 

Let me

 

Stare into your soul

 

For a few more simple 

 

seconds

 

 

 


 

This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge found here at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “Let Me”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Tune in tomorrow to see the new challenge for this week! Photo by Tanya Trofymchuk on Unsplash.

Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
