Escape

By Fred Appelhanz

         Escape

 

A plethora of whispers

drift upon midnight air.

I remember conversations;

a voice- soothing and fair.

 

Bewitching- were her words;

creating a symphony of emotion.

Her eyes slowed time to a trickle;

glowing in natural illumination.

 

As a full moon rose,

a spontaneous kiss was born.

Spirits of light intertwined,

and night’s beauty adorn.

 

Two lives started to intermingle,

casting away expectations.

Midnight air was electrified;

for love knows no limitations.

 

My being savors that moment

among the whispers and moon,

when I  experienced fulfillment,

and my heart escaped its cocoon.
