Summer Dreams

Once when we bathed
In foamy waves
Of sultry dreams
I watched your verses
Turn to darker fears
Of salty tears
And dandelion years

We waited as summer’s end
Closed in on unspoken
Words and naked skin
Entangled thoughts
Collided with
Entangled limbs
And a final kiss

I dread the Final kiss
from the first time
our lips meet
the Last goodbye
from the first hello
the Cool embrace
in place of heated passion

Broken promises we knew
weren’t meant to be kept

Inevitable endings
