Under Midnights Eye

Under midnights eye,
true intent is captured.
Words escape throughout,
fantasy becomes real.

Under midnights eye,
doubt doesn’t exist.
The barriers are broken down,
Whatever the heart wants, it gets without question.

Under midnights eye,
the skin yearns to breathe.
As it awaits contact –
consumption of touch.

Under midnights eye,
secret dreams scream themselves known.
As time ceases movement,
in the engulfment of feeling.
