Virgo Blight

Faded Summer - Poem by Virgo Blight

The gentle twilight, so warm and calming,
once invited us to wrestle under its watchful eye
The far off hum of crickets serenaded us on the grass
-we hardly noticed.
Embraced in one another,
we waited as the nights grew stale.
Days grew shorter:
the evenings came unwelcomingly early.
An eternity soon grew cherished-
Savored till it was gone.
All else is dark and fridged, but
Your body pumps life into my heart.
Tears have run dry so I hold you close
-clinging to what is already gone...
