What was lost

heart
awakens before the dawn;
hands
reach across
hungrily,
for you.

there,
amongst the midnight
wanderings of the soul,
we found
each other.
we found
peace.
we laughed.
we played.
we
were
wicked
in our childish joy.

but now
as night’s slip
pulls away,
you have gone.

are you out there?
are you seeking me out?
does your soul remember
our dance
under the forests of our imaginings?

dreaming perfection:
two souls fast at love.

but.
as a dull orange
burning lustfully
lights the east,
purpose
sweeps away
the ashes of my mind.

i see my sweet
and
beautiful
phantasmal partner right here,
with me…
i feel my lover
dancing with delight,
right here
within me.
