More than One Night

More than One Night

I’m beautiful, but
just for one night.
The everything, you
dream about in life.
And, you’ll love me
erratically, fearless
midsummer’s night
breeze.  Feel my
chaos, falling
slowly into dreams.

I’m magical, time’s
sensual feast.
Your fantasy, for
but a night.
And, what of me
this enchanting frenzy,
of color and life.
Suffering here, no
calling comes
to my dreams.

I’m flawless, to
those without sight.
Their every truth,
accosts my life.
And, sudden insights
take them away.
To other’s hearts,
where they shall stay.
All I am, lasts
for more than one night.
