Twilit romance

Let the stars bear us witness,
Let them spark the story of our romance
And plot a constellation of this love

Mind and body lapped in waves of desire
Eyes drawn to wine-sodden lips
And need guised in the shapeless winter breeze
A Lust that shies away,
Blushing with the fading glimmers of a setting sun
And love sprinkled from above,
Blooming beneath the sparkle of night’s first stars

Come to me you seem to say!
Telepathic
Secret
A thought floated on pheromone tides
And temptation marinated in dreams of passion

I taste your lips before they meet mine
A moment intoxicated by the bliss of surrender
The sweetness of softness
The thrill of delicacy
And the fulfillment of something meant to be

Oh that first kiss!
Long bound by the ceremony of courtship
Now ripe with the succulence of patience.

Where do we go from here?

Beneath twilit skies
Your beauty bursts in splendor
Love and lust combined
For some dreams cannot be dreamt
Thrills beyond imagining

I’ve always felt that emotions are enhanced beneath the open night sky.
That underneath the gaze of countless stars,
Our souls are compelled to honesty.

Hope you enjoy this twilit romance.

Stay safe everyone, and stay loving.

    Very romantic, Jude. Twilight romance, lovely. It could also be about two older people with that title! I like that, too. 🙂

      Yeah I thought so too Marsha. But I think ‘twilit’ instead of ‘twilight’ neutralises that a bit 😁

        I liked it all the way around, Jude. I was teasing about the Twilight (age). The romance novel I wrote was Girls on Fire, about three woman and their twilight romances. 🙂

        It’s supposed to be somewhat comedic. 🙂
