Transparent silhouette
close on my heels.
Faithful apparition
zealous in your devotion
—as was your love
so often.
I’d not surrender a night.
The last embrace lingers still,
stills my heart
whenever pause brings you forth.
A catch in my breath.
Arms not there
hold me tight
—and then they’re gone.
A slow exhale
is but a breeze upon my neck.
A trick of the moonlight.
Silver touching my skin
again,
as if a gift from you.
