The Morning After

The Morning After

Melted wax, hardened
Half empty glasses clutter
the table top
and scattered clothes lay
where they dropped
Laying in this moonlight-streaked room
I pray for darkness to linger
That you will stay wrapped in my arms
forever and this night
will never end, but I know
when dawn breaks the sky
and the sun floods its light
you will leave me again
The crispness of morning
will chill the warmth of bodies
entwined in lovemaking
The desire in your eyes
will be replaced by indifference
And as you slip away in my half sleep
you will steal my heart once more

Laura Bloomsbury is hosting D'Verse Poets and prompted us with

Now Spring has penetrated the Northern Hemisphere we are moving from dark to longer lighter days. Or from Nocturne to Aubade

“In French it means “dawn serenade,” and that is the meaning that English-speakers originally fell in love with. As the relationship of “aubade” with the English language grew, its meanings became a little more intimate. It blossomed into a word for a song or poem of lovers parting at dawn. Later it came to refer to songs sung in the morning hours. The affair between “aubade” and the dawn began with the Old Occitan word auba, meaning “dawn”.  ~ Merriam -Webster
