One Night

Blinking her eyes
getting rid of this blocking fog
dark, white, and grey
so thick and heavy

Sweats.....
everywhere and all over
she can't stand the heat
the pain of the light
hurting her bare skin

Heartbeats....
pounding and racing rapidly
so ultimately
leave her voluptuous-self breathless

Her beautiful mind frozen
caught for a moment
trapped in a nowhere
found herself staring here
there and everywhere

Staring at her pathetic gorgeous soul
in a glass of shadow
in dusky light
questioning herself
...the figure mirrored
wondering about now,
then and tomorrow
doubting her, him, you, and them

Tonight,
this night,
Just one night.

Profound and eloquent. You have a way with words.

Is it about your last relationship and the pain inflicted from it? Are you wanting less complexity in life? Instead longing for simplicity?

I think you need a hug.

Thank you :)

Hmm...it's actually about nothing really personal. Maybe I was just much into the story I had read. And I felt like writing it last night, so that's what came out. Or maybe somehow, a part of it, reflected an old story of mine.

^__^ Well, who doesn't love hugs? I certainly do.
