I watched her

I watched her
from across the room
I watched her glow
and steady

I watched how her body
crosses
the aisles of my dreams

into a delirium
of the senses

an illusion
of breaking
voices
and starving
breaths

I held her with my eyes
in heat, scorching

while the wildfires of my body
crackled
in lust, begging

for one kiss deadlier
than the last

but she peeled
my body
the way she peels
the stars

and like a daisy
waving goodbye
to the last afternoon

she breathed
the sun
into
the moon.
