absent: presence

absent: presence


the orange ball bathes my face

an intense warmth lingers

is it your caress?

an odor emits of your absent presence

closing the shutters down

you embrace me with a kiss

you undress my soul

and enter forbidden space


yet I cannot find you

although you are here

like a veil upon my skin

oh to be in such a dream

of dreams


Angelique L. Jenkins
