MIDNIGHT ROMANCE

Midnight Romance

We float, he and I, on sable sand shore
As ivory mist on morn’ horizon
Cerulean wake stretches back and fore
Porcelain skin glowing pink with wanton

I am obsessed by his ash of rose lips
Inviting me to taste his sweet desire
A passionate kiss as my soul he grips
Embracing as doth charcoal into fire

Aching with desire my crimson heart burns
He lays me on the soft absinthe grass
His obsidian eyes voice what he yearns
I succumb then as the waves gently crash

Sleep smoke clears not at all what it did seem
My midnight romance was naught but a dream

This one down here brought back memories of when I was using those words too. i don't think I won and it bummed me out (unless I am mixing up with another word contest). At least we ended up with GREAT sounding poems using these words.They inspired great beauty!

Thank you for your lovely comments Marc. I can't take credit for those words though ... as they were a requirement for the contest I wrote this poem for :) Best, Judy
