Pumpkin by Midnight

One more second
One more kiss
One more
Sigh lain across the pillow,
As I breath you all in.

My heart is not made
For resistance
I do not dare speak
Of distance.

Time is dashing by.
Precious moments
Fall from the sky.
Fairy tales whisper
“Pumpkin by midnight.
Pumpkin by midnight.”

One final caress
Of fingertips.
I need to feel
The warmth of your lips
Graze my tear stained skin.

My heart is not made
For resistance
I do not dare speak
Of distance.

Time is dashing by.
Precious moments
Fall from the sky.
Fairy tales whisper
“Pumpkin by midnight.
Pumpkin by midnight.”
Eyes Morse code,
Please don’t go
Please don’t go.

One final sigh
One last embrace.
The tap of my heels
Echo the goodbye.

My heart is not made
For resistance
I do not dare speak
Of distance.

I run to you
Because I am not finished,
It is 11:53
And my heart is restless.

Before I greet the night.
Please just,
One more second
One more kiss
One more
Sigh lain across the pillow,
As I breath you all in.

My heart is not made
For resistance
I do not dare speak
Of distance.

Time is dashing by.
Precious moments
Fall from the sky.
Fairy tales whisper
“Pumpkin by midnight.
Pumpkin by midnight.”
