Passing Ship

I sought the moment in her eyes
while denying the turmoil inside my mind
my voice coaxing her forward
daring her to reach oblivion
all for the precious freedom
locked in the glowing aftermath of sex
embraced in serenity and carnal destruction
yet still my soul felt alone
isolated from desire
rejected by love
with that inner voice mocking me
as I silently walked away
into the night
before she could ask more than my name
