Type of night

We had the type of mornings that came too soon
The gaze from her eyes a clear indication of what we had to do
The curve on her lips a green light to steal a kiss
The grin in her teeth an invitation of a subtle touch

She lay face down
Her head pressed sideward on the pillow
As the sun bent to kiss her back
Her hair gently spread behind her 
In quite an orderly fashion 

The wind blew around her
As if scared to touch her
The candles lit to reflect her image on the walls
Each corner fighting for a piece of her shadow
As they embraced her in awe 

Her legs hovering on the bed in a playful motion
Her eyes seemed to catch mine at every glance
As she spoke in slow motion
She spoke in soft tunes
As if the wind knew when to give way

Her movements purposefully involuntary
Almost scripted for a movie or an advert
We had the type of nights that went too soon

Every inch of her body was glorious
I would say sculptured, 
but even great masters create perfect flaws
every part connected 
like a gentle spring river there was no start and no end

God was wrong
He created man in one day
And this woman, lets say he took his time.

I have said too much.
 I want to drop my pen and wait for the night
For the morning comes too soon
And we will do it all over again
