Devising a Diction

Devise if you can,
Some diction for a soul,
To frame her face
Through words that are not
Dipped in the rust
Of advertised songs
Or sullied with grease
Of titilating films;
But offer through the rhythm
Of palpitating beats
The dionysiac dance
Of one sudden glance
And strum through the heart
The ripples of love -
Condensed in a smile
Spilling through her lips.

Dredging my soul, I struggle for a tune
To harness my dream in unparalleled gleam.
