A Lovers Moment - Poem by Simon Collins

Standing too close to me
In this cool late summer evening
Clusters of tiny flies dance to a silent rhythm
like drunk atomic particles
Your smile lights a fire
Far away in the psychedelic twilight
A chimneys Unblown smoke curls and unwinds
into a soft translucent cushion
You better go, he is inside
I say in my head while noticing your eye colour
Wanting to look deeper
The sun is almost spent and the cooling earth relents
It's warmth
I wonder where he is you say
As the colours darken and pull away from the light
You are gone

    You create the scene,
    the unsaid feelings that speak loudly
    throughout this poem.
    An enjoyable and reflective read.
