For One Night

I wanted you last night
not only to make love
but, to bask in the ambience
of your presence
to hold you and, mold you
to my bodies specifications
So, I stared at your picture
though you weren't there
my body started to tremble
as though you were here
It seemed you were coming
right out of the frame
my mind keep on playing
these tricks and, these games
I smell your cologne
it's all in the air
you're voice keep on ringing
inside of my ears
I stare at your picture
when you're not here
my mind seems to wander
anytime, anywhere
Though I can't see your face
it's embedded in my mind
I see it everyday
everywhere, all the time
I wanted you last night
for only one night
to make love to my heart
my soul and, my mind.
