Late nights spent with Jess

Her December skin 
Now sweetly rests on my lips
Still taking my breath

Pale moonlit hours spent together
We conversed solely about matters of perfection, 
about how it's only a state of one's perception 
I didn't tell her then, now I wish I had
That the way her upper lip quivered
as she dug deeper into her soul
for answers to the questions her
body ached for her to ask 
would be the very thing to do me in
Everyday now I beg for us to be snowed in
There are so many things I'd love to do with you
or to you...

First, make love to you
Second, make love to your soul
Third, give in to you

I'll lust no longer,
But surrender all I have
To always be yours

Hello Ben, and welcome to Poetry Soup. I'm really impressed by this write, and like to see your unique take on the haibun form. Thank you for entering my contest. However I'm sorry to say that on this occasion you have not made my top 20. I have been really lucky to receive a lot of strong haibun, and most of them are a more traditional format, so they will be going through. I will be giving this piece a honourable mention, which will allow others to follow a link back and enjoy this poem.
