Silky tresses cascade like water down
the crevice; a gentle preface fading swiftly
within a lover’s kiss
intent and intense the desire
caught on each other’s breath
her gasping surrender as his hand guides her
so softly she falls to her knees
while the gentle breeze of his whispers
court her desires to surface;
as her senses dance to the touch of his lips
he savours the pleasure of his love.

He demands the real joy be found
in the secluded moments between pleasure
and pain; holding on to his own hunger
a little longer so he can awaken her passion
her soft cries a dawn chorus of love
that caress his ears with music
when in her sweetest surrender, she opens his eyes
to the wonder and beauty
hidden within the vista of lust.
