Summer (Free verse) by MaliqaTara
The clouds parted Shimmering lighting beaming through Just like that; there you stood And I had to blink To make sure that you were real... Riding in the car... Your hand occasionally brushing my hair my cheek my shoulder my heart That amazing smile Brighter than the diamonds that we were going to pick out; A light for me At the end of my dark tunnel. After work, you'd rub my feet then back then neck then kiss my hands looking into my eyes forever and a day We said. Later on; skin touching skin you never shamed me just whispered of your love and caressed the body your warmth still resided in. The summer left us... Cold Scared How often you pleaded, tears soaking my chest as you lay clinging to me. I caressed your manicured locks Holding back my tears Trying to soothe your pain by swallowing my own. Sometimes at night I don't feel quite alone like your breath on my neck or a whisper in the dark and I dream of waking in your arms Not stirring; just watching... And those nights I don't cry Don't wake up sobbing Calling out your name... Those nights the memory of your love your kisses your body your voice... Those nights I dream of a love that never dies of a summer that never ends And a man who never left.
