"The Poet in Darkness"
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. MD
The light touch of her fingertips
Sending shivers down my spine
I can't believe this is happening
I can't believe that she is mine
Hidden by the candlelight
I give out a sigh
Alone in this darkness
I claim you as mine
I glimpse you as you move
A poem I wrote in a mood
Even in the darkness you dazzle
I am engulfed by your every move
The slight trembling of your lips
Your eyelashes flicker
The soft moans of the moments
as our night gets deeper and deeper.
Spent in this darkness
with the warmth of your breathe
I blow out the candle
And not want for the day.
