Dark Splendour

A metaphor between a night and a girl. :)

I look up at you,
Beauty is all I see,
Unpretentious, Serene,
As calm as one can be!

Dark wisps of your hair,
Curls, oh! so soft they seem,
Gentle breeze blowing through them,
With unsurpassed lustre, they gleam!

Your face so calm,
Satisfaction writ large and clear,
Gleaming stars adorning you,
Breathtaking beauty, unrivaled!

On the horizon I glimpse,
Your lips touching the ocean,
An unending thirst inside your soul,
A vista, magnificent in every sense!

Deep understanding and maturity,
Resplendent across your persona,
Stunning in every way you look,
Grace personified, no place to find a flaw!

If only you were human,Etched in my memory,
Every ephemeral moment,together would be!

Divine it seems to behold such a sight,
Would love every instant of life to be a Night!


  1. wonderful metaphors :D..

    i add :

    I come and sit beside you oh night,
    Even when the world sleeps inside,
    just to be in your loving arms,
    and to be enticed with your charms!!

  2. Thanks and Wow!

  8. @Maverick:
    i read through and I found,
    the nights' beauty is so profound.
    but it brought me a thought,
    like a good omen,
    that somewhere deep in my heart,
    I am so proud to be a woman.

    context: the beauty of a woman helped you define the night in such a magnificent way.

  9. @ Kajal
