Only Memories Remain...

You appear at night as a ghost in my mind
and vanish like a shadow in the sunlight.
To catch you is impossible -
to tell you is too hard.
Your face remains a silhuette in my imagination
controlled only by my heart.

At night I feel the strength of your arms
around me,
The softness of your kiss lurks deep inside
my soul,
Your touch send shivers through my body
like an electric current
Yet then you flip the switch and its gone...
waiting to return another night.

Very clear imagery...terrific poem! Hugs, Dee
Deeply and clearly expressive of a strong and lasting emotional bond, and displays impressive writing skills. Good poem. I enjoyed this. xx jim
This is beautiful, there is a line in there which resonates with me. 'Flip the switch', I wrote a similar one called 'Trip the Switch', it has similar undertones though the style of yours is more about the dark hours and I understand that too. Great piece.... lingers in the mind. HG: -) xx
