and the wind howls like a lonely wolf in the night.
The chilly air rapidly overtaking the dying fire
as the moon hangs in the sky, glowing bright.
Wine glasses empty next to the discarded
carafe on that wooden table by the door.
The two of us first started
talking and it led to so much more.
Pulses quickened and emotions grew stronger
leading us to where they've always led in the past.
Only this time we lasted longer
and time stood still even though the hours went by fast.
Sweaty and exhausted I now stand in the shower
trying to replay the night's events in my mind.
Left alone to think of the passion and power
that I didn't know was even in me to find.
I'm left with a memory of you
that I know I'll never be able to forget.
A wave of emotions anew
but among them will there never be regret.
I wanted to know you from the inside
so I took you apart.
I found the "you" you try to hide
and as a trophy I stole your heart.
