One more look

With just one look I was hooked

Each word that dripped from your pen made me crave more again and again

Every line was divine and I wish it had been mine

But every story has an end

Just as you lured me in you sent me on my way in a daze

Only when I closed the book did I feel the missing pieces in me

I knew I shouldn’t but I couldn’t miss just one more look…

Milky Way

Her skin itches

unbearably tight

in the day’s light

Coming not so soon

is the moon

bathed in the darkness of the night

In the wane light

She tears the facade away

layer after layer

revealing that which flows beneath her skin

Now all can see

the stars within her

burning so very brightly
