Black cloak in the wind

Looking for the innocents sins

In frantic flight
Their master they chase
Decrepit delight

Scythe in swipe
Cutting and swathing

Of soft nocturnal feelings, whispers of wisdom

Earliest of the morning light

Peeking through shades and sills

Sketching out a silhouette
Sleeping contours satin covered still

Gentle touches, my fingertips...
