Love and time

Hungering for love –
When time stops
At night, and all he sees
Are the empty spaces
Of love unreturned,
Watching until the grey dawn
Appears outside the window;
A girl’s face, wide eyes,
Open and clear,
Calls out to him
Like a guilty angel,
Long golden hair
Wound in his fingers,
Stroking her face,
Her naked body lying hidden;
He sees her beauty now,
Crazed by love’s desire,
With wet eyes;
Those beautiful eyes,
Grey and clear,
Flashing wild, illegitimate love,
Now staring, unseeing,
For love is done,
There is no answer
To the silence.
