My Deep Blue

I lick my lips

For the residual sweetness

Of remembered kisses

Smiling

In the darkness

 

Languishing on sheets

In solitary thought

With a tune whispered

Like a prayer

To Aphrodite

 

A red rose

Lay at her feet

My Lady of Love

Who smirks darkly

At the irony

 

Sinuous stretch

Like a tiger

Or a snake

In the grass

I burrow

 

The rain drips

staccato beats

Above my head

Fuzzy blankets

Snuggle

 

On the shores of dream

I cut the anchor line

And drift without fear

Into the deep blue

Of night
