The Secret Night
When you opened your eyes and found me no more.
But the ridges on the bedsheet told stories of the night gone.
Remember when the moonlight caressed my cheeks?
And you wonder how I vanished with the descent of dawn.
The breeze was lulling and moon was bright
Essence of wild roses aroused desires
I was dressed in dreams, and drenched in love
You touched my hand, and shattered all fears
The window let the soothing gust in
My long traces glided with that flow
Some remnant of kohl flowed down with tears
Time elapsed delectably and slow
Looking into your eyes, my thoughts sublimed
Inebriation of your proximity, made heartbeat race
You smiled in amour and held me tight
With a naughty grin I rested my case
When we stared at each other as we lay side by side
I doubt if we let our eyes blink
And when I caressed your hair with gentle strokes
You shut your eyes, and stopped to think
The night had passed gifting memories to cherish
You opened your eyes and found me no more
For I am just a dream, I don’t exist
But you will see me each night when you open the door
