Reprised-Eternally Bound

The moon whispers 
his secrets
only to the sea

the sea rushes
to him
faint with passion

surging against the shore
reaching for her love

the moon blushes darker
swollen with desire

these lovers
distant lovers

each
never to caress
the other

yet
eternally bound

*This is an older piece of mine that I came across and
decided to reprise it. It's one I've always really
liked. The idea of the moon and the sea in love with
each other but never being able to touch.

Warm and Cold

The heat from your touch
and  

Your passion
still

Light my nights

Morning’s glow
brings
the truth

My soul
chilled

I know better
than to think
you’re mine

Back to Yesterday

I want to go back.  Back to yesterday, when the world was just us.  When all it took for the world to be right, would be for you to take me into your arms.

I close my eyes, breath deeply and whisper your name.  I’m caught up in the craving.  The  desire that takes me to yesterday.

I open my eyes and there you are.  Your hand reaches for mine once more.  You pull me close and I’m surrounded by your loving embrace.  My pulse races with delight at your touch.  Your eyes hold my gaze.  I fall deeply into the need I see in them.  I’m blissfully intoxicated by your flesh, your scent and your urgency.

I’m lost in yesterday again with you.  To stay would be insanity.

To leave would be agony.
