shifting title

Before your image rolled around in my mind
Like a story with a shifting title-
Afraid of its final chapter-
There was that night…

The night when we spoke
As if there’s no tomorrow
(Because we knew there wasn’t going to be one)

We exhausted life stories
The books on your shelves, some jokes…
Like alcoholics draining the last drop of wine before collapsing.

I said, remembering my friends’ words:
“We’re pioneering a new state of mind!”
And I was filled with elation.

You uttered a compliment I couldn’t hear
Then embraced me.

Your kisses fell on me
Like chocolate mousse

Covering caramel Mermaids
Until our bodies were clad
In the skin on skin velvet.

The dawn fell upon us –
Cruel
And broke the spell with unsure words

My knees went soft.

I left
Going in the wrong direction
And on my way

I crafted a new anecdote to tell my girlfriends
About the night
Before your image rolled around in my mind
Like a story with a shifting title
