Ashes - Poem by Lucifera Santez

Just for a second our eyes meet,
We lower our lashes,
But still we are aware of the heat,
That ignites between us,
A spark that sets off the fire of longing,
Desire that cripples us,
Our bodies are begging to touch,
Still we ignore the need,
Mask it with shard of coldness,
But still we ache, we seethe.
Just a brief touch of fingers,
And we want to run away,
Hide, and build our own place,
Foolish dreams or a child’s naivety,
We seek the refuge from this hideous reality,
With the last rays of sun,
Begins our dark fantasies,
We let rage our imaginations,
Filling the emptiness with hollow dreams,
Few moments is all it takes,
To make me think of you again.
But I kill those happy endings,
When we meet,
I give you a cold formal greeting,
You cling to him as does she to me,
We turn back,
And walk away,
Stomping on the ashes of our dreams………………………..
