Kisses in the Dark
In darkness deep my lover hides his face While offering, inviting to embrace Within the quiet night, and love unseen Bears secrecy like barriers in between. Yet unmistaken thrills the gentle spark Of hiding love to kiss me in the dark. Mid rumors of a beauty past desire, I beg to rise and die within the fire, A glory more than ample ‘gainst the night That substanceless though somehow hides his light. And so I weep to glimpse the faintest mark, And thank my love for kisses in the dark.
