*A wrote this and it’s been hiding in drafts since June 22, 2013. 

Like stars in the waking dawn, memories fade from view. A rebirth, crowning on the horizon blots out those pinpoints of light from our past.

This has been true for me, with you. The sky is less dazzling, the brilliant highlights burning from the heavens being swept gently to the side, replaced with soothing, sedate blue skies.

Drifting lazily by. But night, the twinkling twilight, comes again suddenly. Sometimes it is my mind that brings that rush back, the passion, the aching drive to both consume and be consumed by you.

At other times it is an eclipse, you’ll send me a message, reminding me of the steel cables keeping me tied to you, my heart more firmly in your grasp than the constancy of the sun beating down upon the earth.

I love you. Ever fiber, atom, every piece. I cannot rest, and stir fitfully in dreams of you, sadness and loss overwhelming. No matter how I try to hide, to chase the dawn, you are a tattoo upon my heart, my soul. Your presence embedded in my skin. And though surely I can bask in tepid blue skies and balmy, mundane afternoons, my soul finds depth in the velvet richness of the inky midnight and the mesmerizing stars lighting my memories.

I miss you. I am midnight Jasmine and you the pull of my fragrance, the booming of my body and the blush of my skin.

As surely as night follows day my lover, so too would I follow you.
Wicked Wednesday
