I wait for you
To come to me
In the night
I wait, killing time
Till lights, grown tired
Of tinting shadows yellow
Flicker and fade
I listen for you
The silent tread on,
Arthritic floor boards
I listen for you
To come to me
The feathered whisperings
Of your breath
Some seek love’s passion
Amours, feverish fire
The blinding intensity
Ravaging a soul
Pillaging a heart
Attacked by desire
But I?
I seek you
The subtle intoxication
Of your lips against mine
In the darkness
In the stillness
When unpassed souls
Seek eternity’s slip stream
Come to me
My love
When eternity breaks
On the shore of time
And stars sigh and slip
Before the greying dawn
Come to me
