Flowers that bloom in the dark

The first kiss, still so unbelievable to me

Couldn’t imagine ever

You, anyone like you that is, kissing

Me, anyone like me that is, being kissed

The slight tinge of the bravery of beer

On our fumbling lips

Salted and peppered with the taste of our whispered fantasies

No, not whispered, out loud,

But buried in ambient noise

No one would ever suspect

You, anyone like you that is, wanting

Me, anyone like me that is, being wanted

Secrets so dark and delicious

The taste the smell the intoxication

A word like desire fails me

It’s more, it’s what I never even knew

But oh, how badly I wanted it

It’s all the things I never gave, but I wanted to

The firm push, the gentle pull

The quivering, whimpering

Better than frosting on warm cake

Filling us up as we starve for more

Why is it less now?

I miss

You, not anyone like you, that is, but YOU

I miss

Me, just me, that is, wanting to be missed by you

But the light doesn’t touch us

We flowers that bloom in the dark

Petals under sweet caress of moonlight

Never beneath the sun

We were beautiful, I thought, but behind closed doors

Because

You, anyone like you that is, blooms in sunlight

With her, anyone like her that is

And me, anyone like me that is, blooms in darkness

The only place where you, anyone like you,

Could ever see me

And keep me hidden

While still enjoying me,

The taste and smell still lovely,

Even on flowers unseen

Flowers like me, that is, that crave sunlight

But learn to bloom in the dark.
