Hawaiian Islands | Short Poem No. 5

In the Hawaiian Islands:

While the breeze was cool

and being evening, it was dark outside.

The lights were glowing bright

as the fire burned inside our hearts.

And, as we sat there, I told you that we’d never part.

While Hawaiian band played, that steel guitar sold my heart.

Hawaiian Islands

Meanwhile, your skin was tanned, glowing by the fire.

And, in your hand, my soul hung by a wire.

As you spoke, the feelings we acquired

above all, were of the future we desired.

There, you took my love with skill and art.

While Hawaiian band played, that steel guitar sold my heart.
