You fold my hand
over my head
and lean into me
with that impish grin
breathless I look
into those teasing
eyes gasping for more
more of you as
I surrender to your lips
burnishing my skin to
the brown of aged honey
that flows from the
mock nibbling that wanders
the wide expanses of the earth
as the sight of the smooth roundness
of your bare shoulders
stokes up a fire in the hell
that lies in quiescent waiting
bated knowingly till the shimmering
moon quakes and floods the earth as she
rides catching him by
the spear of black satin
