Beautiful Stranger

With closed eyes
And opened mind
I let myself float back
Into a memory
Of one single night
Spent with a
Beautiful stranger.

A moment shared
A secret place explored,
A journey into the darkest
Realms of ecstasy.

I have searched the entirety
Of my tortured existence,
For a love as deep
And true as yours.
And I know in the roots
Of my being,
This this blackened
Heart of mine,
After you,
Will love no more.

I knew you
Before I had ever met
You.
I wrote of your touch
Before you ever
Laid your gentle hand
On my cheek.
Described your countenance
Before ever looking upon
Your face.
And knew the sound of your
Voice,
Before ever having
Heard it.

You live on
In my cumbersome dreams.
Taking me from the depths
Of my despair,
With visions of a past,
I’ve never lived
To the heights of passion,
Of a million nights to come.

Every time you take
My hand and strip my pride,
I fall deeper into my fascination,
Giving myself up completely to
The way you heal
My soul.

I know you feel it too.
I see the fire in your eyes
When I touch you.
And how we ache together in the
Need for more.

So take me away.
Lead me to your sacred waters
And make me reborn.
Make me yours.

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.
