Secrets In The Dark - Poem by Heather Mortimer

Now come, brilliant sunset
Bring my fiery bliss!
Travel quick to my senses
And quench me in kiss.
Bring me jewel-studded blackness,
Cool caress on my skin
Let no bird sing my secrets
As the slow dawn begins.

Hasten quickly, new sunset!
Bringing sin upon sin
Hasten here, utter darkness!
Chide my passion come in.
Let the rays light his face
On the innocent morn
And sleep on, Father Time,
Wish I stay wrapped in his form.
