Love Like The Autumn Sun (Contest)

through the sweet vortex of our inner frame
we can dream of far off places with kings and queens
shaped through the fragments of are exploits
someday you will be all alone in your room
there you will read a text to reflect upon your life
we each are on a journey in this life
some ponder the existence of God
other reflect in the day to day toil
love is the mere essence of our existence
shine your inner light upon the twilight hour

shadows block the mere reflection of my frame
not having you in my arms is driving me insane
lest I refrain another door by which to explore
there is so much more in this game of life
within its given strife we can learn
one soul soars and another will soon burn
we better wait are turn in this wheel in the sky
the faint lulabye in its scope

thoughts can make you recapture about a life here after
some like the fantasy cause its like the real thing
other ponder grace as there guide through life's surprise

Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Editing stage: 


An unusual slant on the contest parameters. Thanks for entering and good luck

I can, but only try
To understand the why
The reason we exist
Or how, we so persist
Amongst the good or bad
Within the joy or sad
To love and fill with hope
Or hate and only grope
A nicely complicated piece. Thank you for stirring the brain
