Sublime Squander (edited)
I stand before you, another blank canvas
revealing myself one brushstroke at a time
igniting your senses with colorful images
of eloquent words wrapped in rhyme.
Burning bright, a fire that rages
It roars up from within me
releasing its fury, consuming your emotions
exposing your awe and envy.
Hard to resist a fleeting moment of bliss
Your mind bites into a fruitful ponder
like a wonderful dream, sublime it may seem
yet still out of reach over yonder.
You grasp at the chance to embrace it's romance,
but the moment passes in squander.
