Forsaken Memory

Yet, another memory was created

Encrypted with lust, visually annotated

A moment in time frozen and captured

Sedated with appetite a desire rapture

The day to follow is now in sight

Adoring the farewell that ended my night

Hoping to see what the bedtime curtain holds

A conviction of what was thought unfolds

Blinded should I have been after this night

Lost in translation nothing seems right

A figment of my imagination I should have known

Away it now goes within the wind blown

This is a poignant expression of what was or wasn't, I felt the emotion. Nice work here, bella, as always!

The heat of the moment, the lust in the night. The temptation for both under a moonlight of delight. Faded from memory, it lingers awhile, tasting was fine and the

rapture entwined with bodies unfolding on sheets of satin silver. Now gone, like dust in the wind, blown away never to appear again, awoken and rubbing your eyes you wonder did this truly happen?

I loved the imagery....bravo, rated Up..

a memory created, perhaps just a dream, when things are too good to be real. such passion such desire unfolds in one night and then its all gone... beautiful and touching poem as i can relate. a figment of my imagination..i should have known.

tnder, Thank you it was something that was so I thought but then by their actions it was smeard into something that isn't. They try to repaint the smear but its too late the smudges are noticable.

Saddle, I loved the recap you said it exactly how I thought it out to be. Gosh darn it why cant anything ever work in my favor. I just want what I want thats it no questions ask just do it lol. ;)

Nikki, Dont you just hate that phrase its just too good to be true?? Geez luiz :? Yes should have known that its just one little memory thats it nothing ever will grow :( oh well only time can tell. Oh and I will be by to read your short story I started reading it but been busy at work.
