Sultry Satin Night


Rusty Broadspear

On a sultry satin night

The velvet shadows lay still.

She slowly emerged - a vision of wonder,

My eyes began to fill

With tears of hope and wonderment,

But my heart was filled with dread.

I reached out to touch

I loved her so much,

But she gently smiled and shook her head.

The room I was in turned and tumbled,

Stars were beneath my feet.

Frantically I searched for her,

She was perfection - so complete.

A solitary black rose hung in the air,

The petals held her tears.

I cried all the way on my journey to sleep.

And then I awoke to face

The worst of my fears.
