poetic glow

tell me the words
sitting at the back of your throat
the ones yearning for exposure
aching to be naked at your feet
bathed in moonlight & mist
shadow dancing upon the dewy moss
as hope awaits a kiss
press the petals of ancient roses
long fallen from their vine
their seductive scent just as potent
against my thundering heart
where your touch stirs my hungry blood
show me the script upon the crypt
of every ghost you've laid to rest
and how fireflies light the inside
in the cavity of your chest
make a space for me
within your hollows
and I will huddle beside your pain
caressing it with loving fingers
until it slumbers
and slowly drifts away
