I remain
Hidden from your sight
Just to be with you
My love

My desire
Consumes me
Each moment we’re apart
Burning me alive
Scratched skin
And a careless look
The spark

For every way
You are mine
Is a reason to hide
And pray
For when the darkness comes

Cloaked in night
To you I fly
Wings stretched wide
To blot the starlight
And bare my all
To you alone

Here
Where eyes matter not
All is made clear
With pressed lips
That part briefly
Only to whisper sweetness
Unmatched
By divine nectar

Kissing your eyelids
I pray them shut
Before I leave
This earthly plane
Silently
I curse the morning light
And take my place
Hidden in the sun
With tears in my eyes
Until night joins us
Again

Poetry

And Cupid Wept
