A Tempting Affair

Hot skin pressed against
cold sheets and pillows-
I'm gazing up at a plaster and plastic
star filled sky.
My breath is taking.
My eyes are wide
with smoldering exhilaration
Not an eyelid twitches.
And then,
when the moonlight hits your face
you fade
into a ghost of a dream.
But your scent still lingers
on my skin.
