Night after night

Night after night you give in subtly submissive hesitant, as though this love might break angels sing your name lush & languid believing faith overrides trust “don’t trust me,” you whisper my black star in this white night gently gravity loses its hold we fall, together wholly entwined, an ancient rendering of desire brought to life night after night we dance the dance swaying with uncertainty will you give in again? as you do with eyes beckoning a gesture so familiar I’ve grown to wonder if you exist, if the world sees you as I do unfinished beauty that wants and takes and hides suspended by only a sliver of moonlight night after night I urge you to run, I tempt you with lies and yet you give in subtly submissive certain that this love will break irretrievable evidence of who we were slipping through your fingertips.
