Breathless

Breathless

 

Every touch dies

Urgent moments from you

Each kiss a voiceless whisper

Around you floats an undying breathless

 

Cool chilled your curls

Lay pensive at porcelain shoulders

Awaiting the warmth of

Assignations love

 

Each caress withers

At a horizons touch beyond you

A singular worship

To the sanctity of the lost

 

The Aeon of caress

Promises divided by consent

Fall silent

Dumb witness to the heavens

 

Sleepless nights echo from your pillow

Coverlet of tears pressed to the aching soul

Dreams you dream alone

Between forgetful sheets of night

 

Every voiceless reaching toward fullness

Poised within an instant

Its colours succinct to a deeper shade

An innocent heretic refusing to repent

 

Out there in the never ending embrace of want

The soft wrapping of your arms

Linger on holding so close

Made breathless by the touch

 

So far away in a presence

Of drifting destiny

The concord of your tears

Wept in the quiet hours of eternity

 

Reveal me

Release me

Free me

Breathless

I like your words for they are quite eloquent. (Minus the HTML, of course!) Your style reminds me of the amazing Moqui Takoda who is on this site. If you care to read some of his works, you will see what I am talking about. Good work with this one!

You have a peculiar feeling about the way in which she became estranged. Excellent.
