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.

What if?

What if?
After your heart has mended
your tears have dried
no longer 
cuddling with pillows
still holding his scent
your phone were to ping.
What if?
One last wish
one last breath held
heart flutters
seeing his name
trembling smile
could it be true
had he come back…..
to play?
What if?
Truth always told
second 
always you will be 
yet 
happiness
in world does bloom
selfish
you know
here you have been before
pain only
upon this path does walk
courting it
you are.
What if?
Could you forgive?
Could you accept?
No more time
less in fact
five minutes in life
an eternity in fantasy
eyes cast in agony
doubt frustrates
drawn back within
yearning
aching 
for his touch.
What if?
Could you
would you
should you
pain that path lays
loneliness
empty nights
littered with tears
empty bottles
liquid love
easing ache
you could do without.
What if?
What ifs 
a useless game
designed 
to frustrate
to employ
wishes
dreams
wants
desires
hidden deep 
taken out
as night blackens
stars atwinkle
wish upon one…..
What if…..
