Cold Light Of Dawn

My face colours
like the sky kissed
by the
first blush
of the sun

when you come
into view

My heart blooms
under the spotlight
of your eyes
like a rosebud teased into
unfurling its petals
by golden summer rays

I imagine sinking
into your fiery embrace
like the day dissolving
into dusk’s velvet arms

But I check myself
before I am lost
in erotic dreams, for
at the end of tonight,
reality waits
clad in the cold light
of dawn
