Night Lights

H.


My intent is not to tickle your nipples and then leave you wanting, nor have you from this Moonlight till the next Sunrise. Nah, this does not please my soul, but my Body and Mind.

I see no point holding on to what was, So, I seek for what I believe is the source and this leads me to a new world with moons and singing Stars.

I long to have you for eternity, or at least for as many days as the Stars, but if thy flesh and fire is all you want, verily your wish is my command.

However, my conscience pricks so i have to warn you i will appear and disappear from your sight as a shooting Star, on the night all your wishes can become a reality, thus, i am known by few and a myth to most of mankind.

Whilst I wanted it all with you the grains on my palm were not mine, neither was the river I felt I could drown in; thus I wrote you songs that will live forever.

Darling, I was neutral until your sweet dirty words sunk into my senses, thereby creating a sensation I want, thus, it was as pure and powerful as Light.

Seasons Pass

The Journey and Sunshine made my skin dark as clay and with each step Angels were my light, night and day.

The stars were lit, the moon full so as every string was struck in accordance to every note, the Angels led the way.

Every symphony birth from the beauty emitting from your smiles and gestures was so much a sign that this piece, I no go fit throw wey.

As the leafs dropped from the the tree’s branches, down to the streets, due to the freezing wind lingering upon it, I watched from a distance wishing you were next to me.

Fancy leather boots from the store with shinny glass windows and I was reminded with you it is all or nothing.

If love could dare wither away as quickly as these leafs or leather on these boots, I never loved you truly.
