A Fleeting Moment

A Fleeting Moment

You touched my life
with a stroke of a feather
A fleeting moment 
in the moon shadow
that excited and tantalized 
Luring me to you
like a moth to the flame
Singeing wings
burning desire
Now all that remains
is a feeling
A sensation that still tingles
A scratch
you can barely see

    Very lovely. I like the last line a lot and feels it adds to the poem.

      Thank you! It’s like those very special moments that you want to hang onto but memories fade like scars

    That moment can be tantalizingly agonizing, sweet but all too fleeting.

    Very nice Christine! Love the ending …. a scratch… a scar barely seen! Like a tattoo it fades but is always there.

    As the moth and the fire
    there with desire
    and then after
    left with the ash
    of your wings
