Bittersweet Romance

Mouth full of ego

or a mouthful of delight?

Read my eager lips.

 

 

[How to get to know you.]

 

~

Night time hearts race with

hurried feet. To yours or mine?

Wherever the world

comes to a standstill; silence

me before our perfect storm.

 

[Weekend ritual.]

 

~

 

I ache for shared time,

a carnal seism which breaks

me beyond repair.

 

[Those other weekends.]

 

~

Will the story of

how you and I end and we

begin dry up in

my pen or spill like champagne

in eager but unsure hands?

 

[How do we go from here?]
