He was a winding walk through the park by moonlight
An overdose on laughter she wished would never end
He was a night spent drinking in the way street lamps mirrored on the water could steal a breath
He was a novelty her heart hadn't known
The way romance whispered I love you already with the electricity in her bones when he asked to take her hand
Her heartbeat boomed and echoed through her ears standing next to him in the amphitheater like a double bass petal pounding "kiss me" in Morse code on repeat
His chucks hitting the pavement of the silent darkened park trail became the soundtrack to her smiles without a subtlety
Their eyes meeting became a view deserving of museums. Watercolors staining a canvas with breathtaking brush strokes in exotic wooden framing ordained with etchings intricate as the subtleties of the way his lips hugged words. This night was deserving of a glass casing to protect it from aging or diminishing in perfection
Their lips meeting became a heated dance of desire, tension building with rapid heartbeats and hungry hands that graciously settled for a gentle brush and cup of each other's jaw as the two in sync pressed against one another so close an atom could not invade the space between their blazing bodies.
She dove into the dark deep water below the street lamps warm glow. This love materialized in the instant her lungs forgot how to breathe in their kiss. The first and last perfect kiss ever imagined by man was shared under the gentle humming of a street lamp hidden away in a pitch black night sky that she never could have known to be the perfect place to look for a first sight love unlike any capable of fathoming.
She tasted perfection on his lips and floated above their bodies like an aethril being soaring the night skies tasting stardust on the tip of his tongue, an addiction never to be fed with a dose by any other man.
The night she escaped in love
