In Red

I’ve been keeping myself
For you for that moment
A beautiful fantasy really
Tracing the light along your skin
With my finger on the arch
Of your romanticism
I dreamt up when I was
Wrapping up your encouragement
Into the perfect purse I could
Carry with me without
Anyone knowing
Anyone knowing about you
Anyone knowing about us
Meeting soon when midnight
Waits for hours after dusk
Lusting for your shadow
Like writing the initials
Of my lovers letters
Unknown yet or
Carving them into the tree
That I have pictured you beneath
So senselessly in red
