PAD Challenge Day 20: You, After Dark


PAD Challenge Day 20: Write a dark poem

You, After Dark

Before the moon and
the stars kiss my blackness,
the dark sky covers me
with angel shadows of you.

In honor of your footsteps,
I face them all
with pillar candles.

I imagine that this exchange
of heat is the warmth of your
breath, hug, and hand next
to my mourning flesh.

Every flicker is your
butterfly kisses reborn again
on my porcelain, facial skin.

From you,
every dancing flame
is a contemporary solo
dedicated to me.

The heavenly scent,
is the God's forgiven aroma,
that I humbly and patiently
prepare for--because,
like you, it lingers then
disappear after dark.
