Twilight is our time
Leave worries for dawn
At dusk our dreams
Spread and illuminate
You’re my stunning sunset
Become my sultry night
Fall into my darkness
I’ll catch your love and lust
His kisses promise
A tender, melting magic
It’s all an illusion
His hellos mean goodbye
It doesn’t matter
I urge him to show me
His teasing tricks

Pen to paper
Heart to soul
Poems are conscious
Dreams and nightmares
A few flutter gently
Catching moments of peace, serenity
Some warm, brimming with desire
Others scream of pain, heartbreak
All pour pure emotion
For you to catch, release, or caress

Sitting on the edge of their time
Listening to the ocean’s song of lost love
Her ephemeral light fades
As her treasured thoughts of him
Sink into her shipwrecked heart
She slips under the current of misery
Done fighting its pull, drowning in despair

Hands move
Over bodies and time
Telling the mother of all lies
That we’ll have another hour
A bright new day
But the clock’s ticking
Timeless numbers and notions
While seasons race to an end
And we reach for a new beginning
