Burning Desire

Beneath arched star spackled skies

laying entangled

languid

talk about everything

nothing

head upon your chest

steady beat of your heart

warmth of our bodies together.

You brush fingers through my hair

breath caught in my throat

I tremble.

Cup my cheek

thumb tracing my lip

I look up

see you smile

the crinkle of your eyes

electric bursts

flare through my body.

Amorous

I pull you near

melding into one

beneath the arched

star spackled sky

wrapped in our burning desires.

Premature Love

Photo by Allan Filipe Santos Dias on Unsplash

Laying side by side

hands entwined

you pretend not to notice the tears

that caress my cheeks.

I wonder what is wrong

where is it that I fail you

even when you tell me

that we will be alright.

Time and time again

no matter how slowly I move

no matter how much time I take

you are premature

and I am late.

I wish that just for once

we could be together

at the same time

in the same moment

eyes locked

lips close

breathe intermingled.

I lay awake listening to you breath

my heart breaking in two

our love is never going to match

and I should abandon all hope now.
