Forever Lost

by

Michael Auguste

Her dark eyes watch as paints I place
A perfect model, hard to find
Upon this canvas is her face
I wonder what is in her mind

And dark, her hair, so smoothly flows
As it drapes both her shoulders, bare
She sits and watches as I paint
So at ease and without a care

So distracted I find myself
For such loveliness to behold
Her name is Elizabeth Anne
And she's just twentyfive years old

I try hard not to meet her gaze
Or lips that ever slightly part
And keep this just professional
Because she is a work of art

But even so, my eyes still see
Her upturned nose and wavy hair
The passion that within her flows
I do hope she is unaware

She sighs and moves and asks to speak
Her voice so soft I barely hear
She wants to know if she can peek
So I let her come over here

Her hair is nearly to her waist
And as she moves it dances free
But never do her eyes leave mine
And she is all that I can see

She touches me in ways that want
Her lips so moist, I have to taste
Her eyes so dark, I'm lost in them
While painting, this I've never faced

And never to be faced again
Forever lost I know I'll be
To drown within all that she is
And never again to be free

"Upon this canvas is her face

You have an engaging penchant for portraying the thoughts beneath the actions, Michael. This is lovely...sensual...romantic.

Auguste,
I believe that this is the first time that I have been by, and after reading what you have written, it won't be the last. You have described her perfectly, and I could see her in my mind. Well Done!!
