It Was The Summer

Hand as soft as cashmere
Too afraid to touch

A smile as lovely as starlight
Too afraid to shine

It was the Summer
Moonlighting
Rocks on the beach at midnight

It killed us
Fear striking like lighting

Every sip
Every word
Every glance

It drew us apart
Like the tide in pulls away
From the Earth

And now our eyes meet
But never lock
Our fingers entwined
Feeling nothing but Winter air

Love needs to breath
But Summer heat
Burned until no oxygen remained

It is Winter now
Breath, my dear
Love, my dear

We are still alive.
