Burn Out - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Burn Out
Date: December 29,2015

In dreams you are the moon
Rising in a midnight sky
With all the stars in heaven
A 'twinkling by your side
You are my Sunday morning
Warm between the sheets
And lazy afternoons
That leave me full…complete
You are a life long journey, babe
A path that leads me home
You're the fire that stirs my passion
A flame to warm my bones
You're whispers in my coffee
Sweet echoes in my dreams
You're the rage of lustful yearnings
In my silent movie screams
You are that speckled pup
That brings me youthful joy
A candy coated confection
That leaves me wanting more
You're the fire and flame that haunts me
You blind me of my sight
You're everything I long for
The dreams that thrill my nights
You are the secret bower
That captures all my sighs
The keeper of my secrets
A flame I can't deny
You're like a haunting melody
Rewinding in my head
With silent midnight whispers
You keep my passions fed

In dreams you are the moon, love
Rising in my darkened skies
But like a blazing comet
You burn…then pass me by
