Teasing Tankas

Before my eyes blink
In rays of a waking day
I can see you smile
As my arms gently embrace
Another night spent with you.

My lips can still taste
The passion found in your heart
Relighting embers
Of my own sensual hunger
As I move into your kiss

I know your essence
The scent of your love lingers
From my dreams each night
My hand reaches the pillow
But you are no longer there
