Vanilla Splinters

Your vanilla essence permeates my soul…

Hey guys! Here’s a free verse poem I attempted on the theme of love. Let me know if you enjoyed the change of mood between the two stanzas. Hope you enjoy!

You are the sunshine in the midst of my storm,
The shining diamond in my bed of coal;
The yin to my yang, the white to my black —
Your vanilla essence permeates my soul.

Yet I am the cloud that covers your light,
The thorn in your gorgeous stem of rose;
The night to your day, the rain to your sun —
A splinter buried deep under your clothes.
