Blanket red wraps around her naked body.
She is sleeping now.
Entrapped within her female grip
I loved her well.
She smiled throughout.
She smiled & sighed & scratched my skin.
Her blood so red entwined with mine.
Her gentle breathing now soothes my sin.
Stillness of the midnight air pervades.
I wrap my body, now spent, around her tight.
She’s warm to me, she holds me close.
Her features delicate and perfect please my soul.
her hair a final midnight kiss, I love this girl.
Her happiness ensnares my ageing dreams.
& we sleep tonight.
