Elissa S. Stuart


Wild wind to wayward soul 
Into the stillness a shadow calls 
In sleep I seek you 
In dreams I find you 
Dusk to darkness 
As twilight falls

Hesitant step to heedless stride 
Twisted paths meandering down 
Irresistible rapture 
With passion's captor 
In blue-eyed pools 
Inhibitions drown

Shimmering stars to sighing breeze 
Remnants of ephemeral night 
Promises sing 
Blood's sweet sting 
Forestalls the return 
To shallow light
