I catch my breath
The stars glitter like diamonds.
The faint outline of the moon shines like white fire.
I inhale the heavy perfume of the white lilies
The scent envelopes me like silk.
For a moment, I can feel your arms wrapped around me.
Soft and warm.
I feel as if someone lit a match in my chest.
The delicious heat spreads to my fingertips.
In the heat of the moment, I throw my arms around your waist.
Then you're gone.
I set the lilies down
I set the lilies down And walk away from your grave.
