After A Night - Poem by Raj Thampi

Night is over and day has come
My lungs filled with your fragrance
Lazy gestures and few soft hairs of your
You unknowingly left on my chest

Half opened eyes, I watch you discreet
You moving like a shifting shadow
Sometimes there and, sometimes there
Light kissed, your golden hair

Your eyes reaching for me
I wonder the reasons,
The reasons for secret smiles
Spreading from your lips
Seen in your eyes

A mark of nails on my left chest
A darkened bruise on my shoulder
The moments I melt in you
The velvet softness of your skin
I adore you, within me
I love you, without words

This morning, the most beautiful
The moments, the dear most
Feet away you are
And I miss you within this distance
