2 am

2 am; wild awake, in this vast house
possessed with echoes, I can hear still
your words in the stillness of the night.

On this empty bed loneliness now dwell
where you took my innocence, I now
recount our affair – loud and fierce.

Shame, at this unholy hour, I’m ready
to take a plunge into the realm of ecstasy, but
I’m earth-bound without you – uptight.

Come let’s have joy; let’s Bliss exhaust
in ways, only Love can fulfill
before Dusk’s unseen fingers seize the skylight.

One Comment on “2 am

  1. In an attempt to seek approval from others, lonely people often use sex as a means for filling a void in their lives, but when a person settles for mere companionship alone, that individual eliminates liking and love. As soon as you sleep with someone, things fall apart on a deeper level – Loneliness becomes lonelier. The most devastating experience for an already lonely person is to find that they have been “used.” In the eyes of the “other,” they were not a person at all, but a sex toy.
    An old cliche says: “Good things come to those who wait.” May Love find us all.
