light flickers dying at the candle’s end

not somber, but the lovely lingering

reserved for the fulfillment of dreams

passions coalescing in a pool

warm and liquid

remnants of the spaces

where affection fuses unbridled thought

just like a beautiful brunette whispering

promises

into a smoke garnished evening’s air

sultry reminders that forever

is only a memory away

the patience of seeing a darkened dusk

the

pause in time

2:03 am
