Til Tomorrow Ends

You appeared in my life,
Like an apparition.
A ghost beckoning to me to follow you.
And I did.
I would follow you anywhere.

I longed for you tonight.

Locked away from the world,
In this tiny room,
Sweltering from the heat
Of the summer’s day,
I lay nestled in your arms.
Your cool breath skimming
My neck,
As your fingers
Trace your name down my spine.

I needed you tonight.

You opened my heart
And that wasn’t easy.
You breathed life into my body,
And sang honeyed words into my ear.
Gave me a reason to feel something
Again.

I craved you tonight.

The love we made was like a
Dream.
A fantasy that still lives on in my
Memories.
You touched my core and
Released my heart.
Spread me open,
And renewed my cause.
You made me love again.

I wished for you tonight.

You lifted the veil of darkness
From my eyes,
With a single kiss.
You set the words flowing from my mouth to the page,
With a single thrust.
You brought back the moon,
That I bask in right now,
With a single word.
You made me see the world again.

I hungered for you tonight.

I want to stay here, with you,
Curled up in your arms,
Forever.
Because I don’t
know how long this
Will last.
I don’t know how much time
We’ve been given.
I don’t know if we’re meant to be.
But until tomorrow ends,
My life, my desire, my body is yours.

Because you loved me tonight.
