OctPoWriMo 16: Night Hides the World

Peony pink lips

Curve in the slightest smile

Twilight hair spills around her

Painting a halo in indigo and midnight

She is perfection now

As she never was in life

I set her adrift on the sea

As night hides the world in shadow

And only the stars above

Know how far I’ve fallen
