There is something missing tonight
Beyond the liquorice taste of a kiss
Beyond our limbs entangled slick from sweat
Milk pooling at our centres
Where has your distracted mind travelled
Disappearing down winding alleys
Has it seen moon
egg poignant in sky
Has it seen clouds like marshmallows
A soft butterkiss to chase nightmares away
Where is your magic?
As my sky beds the mattress
My oblivion too far from here.
