In a mirror at midnight

Spread the love

As I turn pages
of dismal,
dark and decadent night,
a gorgeous
itch of you
bleeds through
into tomorrow.
Feel summer
weave into wind,
dance with dilated leaves,
we align
our mouths
and kiss
misery away.
Love for you exists but
is it enough?

    What some gorgeous word combinations here Sanaa; especially “gorgeous itch”, ”decadent night” and not forgetting “align our mouths and kiss misery away” that even gives this old reader the itch too!

    There is something about the image of Summer flirting with the wind and “dilatedΒ leaves” that give delightful goosebumps! Fine write.

    Nice quadrille, Sanaa. Being alone at night is hard, a good reason not to. If that loneliness is from a liked one not being there.

    β€œIn a mirror β€œ sigh… lovely lack of disambiguation, leaves us wondering has she descended into lover’s arms or a dream? Poignant final question, for the ages…
    And oh the dilated leaves!
    Thank you.
