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
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
