If those eyes ever looked at me

Sitting across the room watching ........
I lie still
And yet
she knows not of
my presence
I am but this ghost of yearning
And she
she is the quintessential angel of
desire
Her pale flesh and curving shape beneath the
sheet leave me confined to this
prison
And how long have I waited here
Night after night watching her move in her
sleep
Listening for her breath and causing
her softened dream
And her face
her face
Arched brows and a blush of fatigue
or tenderness of dream
something makes her moan softly
and slide against the
moonlit sheets
One thigh reveals itself untangled from
the covering
And even from way over here I can
taste the scent of
her flesh
the touch of her forearm
her hand
Before I know it though I rise
and gently flow nearer her without meaning
to I become the soft
breeze that bathes her skin
in passioned lotion
yet before her restless slumber wrestles her beauty into
awakeness
I turn away and drift off on
the warm breeeze from the open
window
Me
this ghost of yearning would shrivel away if
those eye's ever looked at me
I may leave her satisfied or not and yet
I will return
again and
again

Every angel of desire deserves a union with her ghost of yearning.

This richly symbolic read was a most lovely referral from Gypsy. I absolutely love it from start to finish. Voted UP and Beautiful

Aiiiiii! I totally agree with ImKarn...I don't smoke, but a cold shower might do the trick. Yipes!
