Bordeaux Kiss

I set the table, place for one
Pour the wine, cork undone
Filet mignon, to perfection done
Topped with greens, and a sauce of rum

The evening sets, as it always had
A gourmet meal, aint so bad
I make a toast to the other side
As silence waits, I must abide

As I hold my glass
Of Bordeaux wine
I dare to wish but for one more thing
In darkened silence, the phone to ring

Soufflé simply will not do
There is no sweet without you
The perfect meal evades me still
The evening fades into a chill

Sleep evades my dreamy mind
And in the haze of wishful thoughts
Dinner was served
With a Kiss

    aw, this is so sad, so lonely, (am I the only one who senses pain is this poem?) but I love the way you wrote this. That ending is awesome, Arthur.

    Love how you danced with the words & take us along... The beauty you longed clearly felt your grasp firmly in hers. How can such passion not be told? Thanks for sharing. Cheers! :)
