Every Night Forever

Prompt 6: Write a night poem.


Every Night Forever

Over a table of soul food
And a chilly breeze,
The sky owns no moon tonight.
Our hands practice constellations resembling l-o-v-e.
Behind the taste of laughter,
warmth tickles our hearts
with a guiding light.
As our eyes think of a dance,
one hand confirms yes, saying:

Care for me to be the skyline with you?
Care for us to be those portraits in motion?
Care for me to be that jazz breathing in your ear?
Care for us to glow together
for the rest of our lives?
