Dark Angel

A foggy night fills the path where we meet again,
glittering moonlight bouncing off your curves and skin.

Your tall, black boots clap on the cold cobblestone.
A sway of round hips, a dancer, presenting yourself to me.

One single finger to the side of your full lips, you give me a little pout,
it sends me back into old memory,
sensual times when we would spent
only but a mere moment apart.

A flick of your thin digits your streaming hair submits,
obeying your command, a goddess controlling aqua fibers;
it reminds me of all the days when I could lose myself
in your long coiffure, once dyed a light lavender,
a field of flowers, I could once call my own.

You look to me with your innocent eyes, a lonesome siren.
When you were once by my side,
I would submit to them daily.

Arms now open, your fingers calmly curl,
a smile and a sigh.
You strike a quick yet lovely pose,
I remember what I miss most.

My dark angel, you return to my life.
