Electric Love

i watch the hurried world go by

a somber and sweet sight

people pass with eyes glaring down

as the sky kisses the earth

 

my heart sinks to the bottom of

a dark and empty world

i cannot find a friend to pass

familiar greetings to

 

alone and cold i find myself

with eyes heavy as stones

solace reveals itself to me

in a warm velvety smile

 

grey as the stones my eyes carry

soft like gentle lambkins

aware of my despondency

she keeps my empty heart warm

 

i've found an electric love that

courses through every vein

enticing and enveloping

my nightly winter reprieve
