I gazed at a lover’s face across mine.
Emotions reflected one onto the other.
Oh, I thought the cold night air was fine.
As twilight dawned into dusk and further.
Little lovers’ laughs trilled and trailed off into the distance.
They grazed the wind and softly whispered off.
Taking the time with them.
Stealing the hours.
Muted groans lost in soft bites leaving hickeys on shoulders and warmth in satiated hearts.
Hearts beat loudly, faster, now slower as it ended then started then ended thunderously.
Words mingled with the silence as
The silence started the words.
Words echoed off the walls and settled in a shabby heap.
On the telly, they lie, unmoving…
They stayed, huddled together against the cold.
They stayed in the corners and clung to the eaves.
The words took yesterday.
Yesterday left with the words when today made it’s presence felt.
