#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 279: #Tastetherainbow-Colour/Weather Poetry

I have always admired you from that far
Like an overture to the Magic Flute
You’re there to bring light to my wicked world
Painting it with bright red with words you say

Erotic dreams and I have no complaints
With you all my pain and heartaches shrinking
You’re like a candle showing me my path
A compass always pointing to my north

I just wish one day we’ll be together
And together we can weather the storm*
