Afterglow

Alone
in the afterglow,
lying here
in our memories

reminiscing how it felt to be
an inspiration for your creative fingertips;
how I melted like soft clay
in the hands of a dedicated sculptor
as you made me
your secret masterpiece,
and yours alone I still am
in the afterglow of our love

Reminiscing
how it felt to unfold you
with my love, one layer at a time
or how my hopeful lips stole your breath
and made it ours
in the kiss of truths and expectations

and still tonight
I breathe our love
when I escape to the place
where yesterday’s spark still flames
where unwritten poems
sensuously moan,
where you stay
with me
unforgettable
in the afterglow

    1. What a compliment! Thank you, Kimberly. To me, writing is like breathing out my life… and my poems are just echoes and reflections from my journey. I have never considered myself so “gifted” but very blessed. I am amazed and pleased that you like my work.

  2. Beautiful. I especially liked the second last stanza,

    And still tonight
    I breathe our love
    When I escape to the place
    Where yesterday’s spark
    Still flames
    Where unwritten poems
    Sensuously moan
    Where you stay
    With me

    Very apt. Will go have a goosey at your other work.

  3. “As you made me
    Your secret masterpiece”

    You paint with all the great images, layering your words to create different shapes and colors, which are then left vividly dancing in the corners of the mind, long after the page is turned and the image is lost visually. I completely love that about your writing.
