Along A Winter’s Gale (XXI)

21 Sep

Along a Winter’s Gale

Restlessly I lay awake,
tossing and turning ‘neath sheets
of burgundy, as the sky
slowly brightened.
You drifted in along the breeze,
or so it seemed, my pulse quickened.
I could feel your breath upon my neck,
tickling—teasing me along
on the edge of consciousness.
I could feel your hands glide
slowly down my sides
seeking purchase,
seeking an entrance,
so that you could slide in.
I could almost taste your tongue,
as it darted into my mouth
urging me to shout.
And yet I didn’t,
I gasped, as my eyes flew open,
and I found myself
shivering alone
with a winter storm
brewing outside.
I cried.

    *tears* Aw love, this is so beautiful, and sad. The imagery is breathtaking.
    I miss you. So very much. And I LOVE you, so very much more.

      Sadly, this was one of my few poems where I didn’t have a happy ending. :O
