Corona Effect

My eyes would soften
When you come around
They could not help themselves

I cannot now know
But I do imagine
You’d cause me a peace I’ve not known

A secret elation brought on
As when light bursts surround
The silhouetted profile someone we love


What is there to say to the silhouette
Eyes and heart now stolen

Haunt me more
Keep me again from sleep

Let the light take its leave from your shoulders
No it cannot be

I drown in words
Though speech has escaped me
