Hiatus

Hiatus

One touch two,
Two touch three
Three touch four
But don’t touch me
Not today, not Tonight.
Turn on the radio, turn off the lights.
Come close; closer still.
Your cologne still the same, as it was a few years before.

Breathe.
Your heart beats echo mine;
Sending shivers down my spine.
Darkness around, your eyes still shine.
Fingers touch, lovingly entwine.

Slow down, breathe slow.
Soft skin touches, let it go.

Pause;

One touch two
Two touch three
Three touch four
Don’t touch me
Unpause;

I smile, I leave and whisper goodnight.
A void, an abyss I left behind.

A hiatus difficult to decipher,
A musing difficult to fathom.

But not today, not tonight.
Turn off the music, let it be quiet.

Pause;
Silence breathes as I walk away.
Silence soothes as moments replay.

Unpause;

Wake up, dawn’s knocking.
It’s a hiatus; just a pause.
As the darkness creeps in, it’ll unpause.
