Let Me

The shadow
Slowly stretches
Across your lips
Let me
Lie in your beauty
For a few fleeting
The smile
Suddenly swims
Within your eyes
Let me
Stare into your soul
For a few more simple

Poet Bio: Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
