Sunset at bay

It wasn't splashed on. Or even spray-painted exuberance
on the giant liquefied wall, it was
as if your breath was caught between
the looking glass, lit up
by a flickering candle.

I haven't seen the moon here - lest heart
should jump out and rejoice
at its feverish heartbroken twin:
from once upon a time
above a heaving ocean,
when air wove fiery loops
around flowers' necks,
tighten them and finally -
watch charcoal petals fall
at our oblivious feet.

  Great imagery here very descriptive and subtle. I like the opening lines. Sometimes when I read poems I stopped immediately at the first two lines because I already know where it is heading. In this piece you made a clear invitation from the very beginning. It made me really curious. It is one of the qualities I find fascinating in poetry that it draws you in. You delivered quite well. Thanks for sharing.
