This work has reached the exceptional level
A balmy Island night
"Your Head Upon My Shoulder" by A TARNISHED KNIGHT
Driving into Kona
on a balmy Island night
Top was down, stars were out
Everything was going right

Your head upon my shoulder
my hand upon your knee
Speeding down life's highway
Free as two could be

Our laughter was the music
That filled the tropic air
Silly rhymes that made no sense
Though neither one could care

Stopped to watch the sunset die
listen to the sea rush in
Tempted by the oceans lore
as it splashed upon our skin

Blanket spread upon sand
we shared the ocean breeze
Smile, a kiss, a touch from you
My! You were such a tease

A pearl drop of water
danced upon your breast
Stirred a burning feeling
deep within my chest

Then as the full moon rose
our passion did the same
Made love on the beach that night
as the trade winds fueled our flame

That flame now has fizzled
leaving ashes of the past
A fire that burns that hot
Is sure to never last

One thing that will remain
etched in my memory
"Your head upon my shoulder
my hand upon your knee"

Author Notes
Been away for quite sometime looking for my long lost muse. My first try at finding it again with this Balmy Island memory. Be gentle with me ok lol
