DEARTH, by                
First Line: There is / this night a poignant/superfluity
Last Line: Of you!
Subject(s): Poisons & Poisoning

There is
This night a poignant
Of things: the very heavens sag,
While sweet
With scent of trees
And honeyed flowers, and warmth
Caught up from cooling earth, the air,
Like amber
Adds torture to
A lingering desire --
Enhancing cruelly the dearth
Of you!
