A moment

He followed after her

entranced with her laugh

and enamored with her soul

he hid himself in shadows

hungering for her lips

and as she passed by

in the sunlight

he dared to reach

a shy and trembling hand

to trace the sunlight on her flesh

but she laughed and spun

just out of reach

as his hand fell to his side

shaking in relief

oh, so close

and he almost had a taste

of warmth and skin

soft kisses and a breath of life

his eyes aflame and hands clenched tight

he strained against the gravity

and raised his head

and his chest release a mighty roar

that shook the earth

that broke and shifted

as he grabbed the girl and

drug her below

and in his greed to have her

there she began to wither and die

And he knew in a moment

that his taste of heaven

would be the last

as the sun fell from the sky

and gravity disappeared

as he was flung into

the black and oily sky

to freeze and slow

until he was struck

the desperate immortality

of regret.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
