Rhinestones and Opals

I mortgaged my soul to the devil
to provide the sequins on your dress
sure to sparkle
in the spotlight you so craved
although only I saw the fire
in your eyes
on those moon-hazed nights

  1. Wonderful. I fell in love with the last three lines. Hope all is good in your world. I’ve MISSED reading your work while taking a little break from WP.
