Tiny promises take flight from within an ivory castle,
Flowing so melodically down the stream of words.
Sprouting wings, they soar through the air like arrows
Narrowing in on targets not yet seen or heard.
Beating hearts now beckon to each other
Quietly at first, then louder, drowning out the world.
Love has struck and now the world goes blurry
As bliss replaces the reality that once reigned.
