saw her again last night
hair draped over her back
scent of vanilla and jasmine on her neck
she noticed me with a knowing look
a lingering stare as her pupils dilated
and she smiled…..

in one moment I gasped
to draw air into my lungs
this was not supposed to be for
we wanted to express a carnal emotion,
desire was written on her face
arching back told the story
it was five years since
we last met
and yet
she is with another so
we both bid farewell…

until the next time
as we surreptitiously
lingered for a taste of
forbidden fate
and to think she
will never kiss my
lips until we
gaze upon each other
naked in the morning
but not tonight
