The Paradox

Like dawn creeping through the darkness of the night
Like a scent slowly engulfing the senses with pleasure
Like a rose symbolising the existence of love
Like the sparkle of a freshly cut diamond
Like an answer to a downhearted prayer
Like a stranger born without feelings
Like water in a blazing desert
Like a thief disappearing into the still of the night
Like the sun shadowed in an eclipse
I conjure what could've been
I wait for the warmth of your presence
I dream of the laughter you stirred
I long for the wisdom you shared
Between two worlds seeking to find another you.
