Day 12 ~~ NaPoWriMo

Not here

My love for you won't be told
Hot and steamy like days of old
My mind gets wet down by the fold***
Dream of holding you tight. We can't

Once we were two just me and you
You went away out of the blue
No chance that we'll again be two
That night I'll savor, more we shan't

Wonder if you still remember
Our times, did what we meant end there
Sweet lass, I think of you ever
Wherever you noctivagant**

Nothing but memory alone
That's all that's left as you have flown
For you there's space saved 'side my moan
It's for you I lust though we can't

  - ** noctivagant (Noc*tiv"a*gant).  See , "Going about in the night; night-wandering".
 - Fireblossom has asked us to "write about love for someone who does not know you love them. The guy at the music store, the gal in the apartment across the hall. That actor on the screen, that character in your novel. You can write about someone you actually know or know of, or you can imagine someone..."

 - *** You can think of a few steamier words here, I calmed it down at third edit.

 - My poem today is of the Kyrielle form, I found at Lady Lee Manila's aka Ming Liu, Day 12 post,
"A Kyrielle poem is made up of 4 lined stanzas of eight syllables each. The capital being the refrain:
eebB "

There is always one who stands out in memory.......I wrote about that one, too.

It's sad indeed when all that's left are memories.
