Sugar as a lie

Jungle’d we ran
like two gazelles
leaping over stumps upturned
kissing water holes
like sudden found treasure

Small wishes
made for promises
came confessions

On a dock in the night sky
at the edge of a shoreline kiss
I confessed my love
with abandon

She smiles
but not taking it so serious
as to live it
the Kiss off comes

I sit in a fire glow
only to see her words
go up with campfire sparks
the Goodbye burns the night

Sending her message to the stars
as my letters go up in flame
and the life we built on sweet promises
like kisses of cotton candy

Sweet soon forgotten
burn hot and intense
till dawn
like signal fires
hoping for more... for a rescue
that never comes
