In soft silence, twilight knits magic,
twirling summer rain far beyond dark eyes,
as words fall, one by one –
translating whispers.

Mulberry lips skim violet
across fences where Venus alights,
drunk warm with nostalgia-

In your arms I could never find sleep-

  1. I don’t even know how to start. I feel drunk-warm after having read this.

    This is definitely my favorite line: “Mulberry lips skim violet” … Well, this too: “as words fall, one by one – translating whispers”

    I love that your last line could go in so many different directions. No sleep because you don’t want to miss a second with your lover. Or maybe you’ll never get the chance to sleep in those arms (especially if they’re across fences). Or maybe you’re like me and you simply cannot sleep if anyone is touching you. 🙂

    And I love that the “could” in your last line might refer to the future, the present, or the past. “Nostalgia” makes me think you’ve left this person, blowing kisses over the fence to say goodbye, wishing you could have stayed together but knowing that magic wasn’t enough.

  2. The music is soft, their words cease so that they can hear it. No words need said as they dance. He puts both hands on her waist. She loops her arms around his neck. They press their foreheads together, closing their eyes and breathing slowly. He hums along to the music and presses his lips to her forehead. He whispers her name into her ear and kisses her neck tenderly.
