Shadows of our Past


You slip through the curtains of the night,

hauntingly into my dreams.

I can barely see your face but

you’re not as far as you seem.

Your touch is like the feathers of an angel,

your breath burns on my neck.

Once again you surprise me

with more than I’d expect.

Your arms around me tighten

the ecstasy begins anew.

Another could never quench

my desires quite like you.

Your passion touches every part of me.

My mind bursts as my soul wrestles to be free.

Too late. . .

My soul is bound to you

with every fiber of what makes us real.

Scorched by the light of day

as I realized away you’d steal.

My mind aches, my soul searches

for that endless desire that felt so real.

The break is made.

The dream is shattered.

My heart still searched as if it mattered.

Rest is regained after much adieu.

Once again begins the dream of me and you.

The curtains part and you enter in,

you feel so much like heaven,

how could this be sin?

A moment of rapture,

fleeting at best

My body remembers where it wants to rest.

Questions unanswered, things left unsaid,

are you really gone?

Or is it all in my head?

Is the dream over

or starting anew?

Its too hard to tell when I can’t touch you.
