Kaleidoscope Online | Moonlight: Cory Buchanan

Azure surges its finest glints of gold

within her look of high noon

radiating worlds of warmth in fivefold


Night stands motionless

capturing our connection

underneath the material in a passionate plus


Inside this weekend moment

her laugh paints ones heart

splashing it with hues felt in the open


Her lips touch mine,

craving one another we strikingly combine


Ecstasy rushes throughout our veins


Within our lock, eyes dilated with lust

Unraveling in heights we brightly combust


By faultless design,

around the tides of life,

we set our sails tonight


Driving home with her in ones mind

feeling absolutely refined


One cannot stop longing to watch her

under the near moons ahead

to feel again what was unsaid

Cory has been writing poetry for 10 years and also enjoys painting, photography, and hiking.
