Nowhere Else

Last night in my dream, we two became one.
Each inch of your skin was against mine.
When the bedside candle burnt down low,
our prolonged shadows swaggered on the wall.
As part of you was in the palms of my hands,
you gave a low moan that evidenced a tacit surrender.

Nowhere else could you run.
Nowhere else would you run.
Nowhere else should you run.

You muttered the moribundity of your family life,
and how you were mislaid in the ocean of dead romance.
But I didn’t empathize. Not even close to that.
Just like an enchanting cage harboring an injured falcon.
As part of you was on the tip of my tongue,
you shivered, growling you saw a paradise.

Nowhere else could you run.
Nowhere else would you run.
Nowhere else should you run.
