April 19, 2016


I live for the dark,
bathing in the light of the moon
I feel revived, fortified.

Fancy meeting you
on one of my midnight rambles,
the brief consternation of meeting another
mingled with the joy
of discovering a like mind.

We walked together a while.
I wondered if you were real.
You felt like an illusion my sex-starved brain imagined.
I felt an insane urge to take you home.
So I did.

O what a delicious night.

In the morning you were gone
melted away in the light of day
like the lost radiance
of the stars.
