New Occidental Poetry

Love's Reproach

The setting sun
Whispering wind
The twilight orchestra's surroundings
Exhaled sighs
Meeting lips
Of love's bloom, the world sings
Bodies together
Arms entwined
As the sky bursts into flame
A passionate embrace
Soft nothings exchanged
As he gazes into the eyes of a dame
Another night
His love ignited
Her love for him neglected
Seeking warmth
And a flurry of kisses
He finds his attentions rejected
