The Night Two Lovers Leapt

By Frogg Corpse

PROMPT — If only ...

In the last warmth of autumns hold


Gripping damp November cold


Protection from this fear


While stripped from comfort clothes.


Leering in the dark


Sweat, rinsing palms,


Moving through words once smooth


Lost along ambiguous thought


An arid sugared spice


Mulling on the mind


Humming a little tune


While staring into night


Sorrows shedding leaves


By the limbering of the pines


Near the douglas keeping watch


At the site where windows cry


Under pattered raining roof,


Sounding querent from broken breast


The heart once beat its truth


The night two lovers leapt.
