The clouds have devoured all the stars in sight Such that I can feel the darkness of night Against my clammy skin brings on great fear For in the stillness sound I do not hear Sought the expected safety of my home Bolting the door felt I was not alone Shaking from fever took on a great fright My skin now turning to a deathly white Quickly searched the contents of every room Fearing this house shall ever be my tomb What creature is it that I cannot see Is it a ghost that takes my life from me Falling helplessly to the frigid floor All is now silent, a breath nevermore
The great expanse of highways are naked White fish bones lines cover the parking lot Stores are in darkness having been blighted A single bag-holding shopper there’s not I move with a feeling of emptiness Wondering if I am the only one The horror within my mind is ceaseless Desperately wish these thoughts I could shun The enemy unseen could cause my death Anything I touched it could climb aboard Like burglars in the night will take my breath Worried what I may find heavy sweat poured Could not drive fast enough to get to her Turning into the driveway there she stood Her gentle wave supplied me the answer Moving close to her as fast as I could We kept social distance as was required The mask covered half of her lovely face There would be no contact as I desired Could be months before again we embrace
Here I’m lingering wanting not to part, To continue holding your velvet hand, While you excite the pounding of my heart, For this moment we’re in a fairyland. But can we remove the cold fence that parts us? Let our bodies be joined on the same side! Be absorbed into a night of blitheness. My heightened desire no longer to hide. To caress your sumptuous loveliness, While I’m devouring your exciting scent. Running my fingers through golden fineness. Loving you forever is my intent. Isn’t it your desire to open the gate? If not in agonizing pain I’ll wait!
