The Last Star

(Original drawing by FBC, C.2020, All Rights Reserved, Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia)

I still can feel your body pressing into mine…

The smell of your perfume,

the taste of our red wine..,

The wings that we would sprout to fly through dark nights,

the endless times a kiss of love would burn bright

and turn our bodies into rays of light

that shone above the sea…

While drummers kept the rhythm of our footsteps,

While strings and saxophones played to the breeze,

We knelt before the flames of passion,

Looking for the long lost action,

an act of love,

of satisfaction,

dancing while this strange attraction

drew us near…

I still can feel the moistness of your lips,

the band stopped playing,

but a voice that whispers in my heart is saying,

You don’t need a drum for rhythm,

your souls carry the song within them

and love will never end

until the last star in the darkness fades away…
