Wait

The heady scent of night flowers blooming,

Dusky sky studded with tiny stars

Whispering winds hold unuttered

Secret desires, longings

resonating silence,

Leaden with passion

beholden me

await your

piquant

touch

P.S: This type of poetry is called Etheree or rather Reverse Etheree.

The poetry form, Etheree, consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.
Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Or get creative and write Double Etheree: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10,
10, 9, 8, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1


...Triple Etheree, Quadruple Etheree, and so on!
