As I lay in bed

Succumbing to slumber

My mind dwells on you

With passion and wonder


The kisses you gave me

Smouldering on

Though your saccharine lips

Have now come and gone


The patterns you traced

With your gentle fingers

Remain as sensations

That so sweetly linger


A worship of sorts

For my imperfect skin

That could find the divinity

Cloaked within the sin


The safety I felt

Enclosed in your arms

Carries me still

to points further on


Past the shadowy days

Where I once existed

A place where self loathing

Had always persisted


Though you’ve gone away

I cannot lament

I hold gratitude

For the time that we spent


So much I learned

In so brief a time

How I could become yours

But instead became mine
