DAWN TOO SOON
-by Neo Blaqness

Tonight
I felt your head
beneath my chin
your breath
upon my chest
the follicles
of my hair
waving like grass
in a soothing breeze
as you gently kissed
and caressed
the bosom part of me
never knowing
a man could feel
such bliss
as when I did
the same to thee
I reached down
to caress your face
and to look
into your eyes
and gently
lift you to a kiss
alas my wish
would be denied
by reality
it seems my reach
collapsed the vision
of my dream
the fragile specter
of your memory
chased away
by the presence
of me
the me
who must be
the me who asks
so much of thee
for I cannot be released
from this charge
nor would I ask
to be freed
but then
therein is the problem
obviously
our love becomes
crushed
beneath the weight
of my calling
unless we dream
and I turn away the rest
lay your head
upon my chest
pretend there is
no light of day
marooned
within your love
would that God
would grant me
one endless night
to have
what I dream of
