a secret

Your name in my mouth like a rose
Velvet against the waters of my desire
Your name on my finger tips
A few tears and a soft kiss
Your name rising like blood
Red and warm, red and opaque
Your name on my lips
I hold a whistle and blow the vowels away

I’m left with you, I’m left with breath
I’m left with mmmmm and
somehow I will never get the chance to truly savor it
