Invisible No More

my love affair with words

Sleeping or near slumber

on January 16, 2015

You lied before me

sleeping or

near slumber

breathing softly

I felt your breath

upon my face

and shivered in

delight

I stared at your

face

sleeping or

near slumber

trying to memorize

every  detail

trying to commit

to memory

a love that

would leave

as soon as

you awoke

I longed to kiss

you

place my lips

upon yours

I longed to trace

the curves

of your skin

laying in front

of me

sleeping or near

 slumber

Waiting for my kiss

Waiting for my touch

Waiting
