Ghosted Love

I never got to meet you.
You never got to hold me.
I was a fool
falling for you.
You were so confused.
Wife
children
how could I compete?
Your voice
I heard
I felt to my core
dreaming of days to come
when I would be yours.
Feel your lips.
Feel your hands.
Feel you.
I knew with certainty
that this would fail
whatever it is that we had
and again 
proven right
realizing I have no recourse
no tears can I shed
in remorse.
It is not a wonder
family for you
always shall come first
recognize that I can.
What I fell for 
a fantasy
a dream
never to be achieved
realized
I must accept.
I fell in love with a dream.
I mourn a ghost
for I knew you not.

Winter’s Delight

Light
snowflakes
tumble through air
lazy
lilting
never one to wander
in brutal winter’s frost
yet
romance
dances in the air.
Scented wood
crisp 
coyly
I glance at you
you smile at me
hold out your hand
take mine
pull me close
hand upon hip
smile
eyes lingering
on pouting lips.
Come in closer
soft sigh
as finally we kiss.
Hunger
burns
fingers tighten
moans 
soft
tips of tongues
giggle 
as you kiss tip of my nose.
Drawing close 
beneath your arm
seeking warmth
as hair is tucked
smile upon my lips
grin on yours
we quickly walk back
wanting to get home.
Fire built
lights dimmed
crackle
pop
eyes shine
breath inhaled
your hand 
caress
gentle curve of chin
fingers trail
through hair
as I whimper.
Throughout the night
passions found
spent
reignited
until 
sated
asleep I fall
held in your arms
one night
to last a life.
