My Deep Blue

I lick my lips

For the residual sweetness

Of remembered kisses


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



On the shores of dream

I cut the anchor line

And drift without fear

Into the deep blue

Of night
