Sighing in the stillness of twilight,
shadows fall into my soul.
Your image fades with Summer's breath...
as I drift away into night.
Hoping for some endless dream,
to quell relentless longing.
But, only hunger remains,
with feelings of insufferable shame.
I was innocent of this desire,
so much stronger than our will.
While the sun blazed in hot skies,
blackness lurked behind swollen stars.
