Some other time

Was there a time
the lips met
a minute before
the glass was knocked
and the blood wine
gushed? Today

is dry; a faint
mark remains,
but the sentiment
is dead, from the waist
down. The flag-stones
now bare were

coveted by feet
that knocked about,
heels that dug the rose
bed and the plush
bed-side rug.

Contributor's Note
I’d like to thank Winz. Without their support my poems would never have made it thru the womb.
