Fading Vision

I glimpsed a hidden beauty
Enshrouded in a veil
Calling my attention
To come closer and reveal
What lay behind her cover
Yearning to be known

I approached and gently started
To peel away the layers
Until, there she stood,
Stark,
Naked
For any One to see
Her heart of utmost darkness
Enveloped by a dance of fiery passion
Bringing flesh to life in Earthly fashion
Betwixt the sea and sky

At last I knew the story
Of life behind the scenes
But as I strove to share it
I saw a mist descend
Across a fading vision
Re-veiled
