After Midnight

After midnight,
And before the dawn
A memory chases me
Of two lovers
Running with the stars.

I sit alone in the moonlight
Waiting for a glimpse
Of you again
And the air smells of
Jasmine and it
It tastes like summer.
I can feel the warmth
Of the dying light of
Day on my back,
And the chill of sunset
On my cheek.

I lie down,
Surrounded by
Flowers and the night
Dreaming of how
You once loved me
Every single night.

I dream of how
You took me to the
Heights of passion
And never let me fall.
Both hero and villain,
You were the love
I craved the most.
You were the love
That I gave every piece
Of my soul to.

When you touched me,
My spine tingled
And my breath hitched.
I felt the warm embrace
Of desire,
Low in my belly.
The ache of need
And want was unbearable.
But I knew you would
Satisfy my every hunger.
Sate my every thirst.

Now the memory fades
At the edges
And the colors,
Along with it.
But one part remains.
The sound of your voice,
And the words that dripped
Like wax onto
My darkened soul.

I carry those secret words
With me,
Now and until I see
Your face again.
I hear them in my thoughts,
Feel them in my dreams.
Taste them in my fantasies.
They are everywhere you
Are not.

After midnight
And before the dawn,
I hear you say,
“You belong to me.”

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
