The Fountain

The Fountain

 

Where have you been my love

 

Did the hours slip from the pools of your thoughts

To go wandering heights in vacant skies

 

Did they capture their images on high

As you floated through the siphoned mist of your dreams

 

I stood on the golden rim

 

Where comes this shimmer quiet in your eyes

Did the blessed heavens kiss away your sadness

 

Flushed you seem with a new coy brilliance

Coquet by your demeanour disregards my question

 

I drank from a sacred stream

 

This sleeping softness sensual pressed to warmth

Pervades the corners of your mouth; teasing brigands

 

Have those loose moments retaliated their freedom

And gathered the snippets of lust once again into ragged ball of passion

 

I lay naked in the dust

 

The tip of your finger is playing upon a pharyngeal string; my love

Purring cat you are stretched bare skinned on a Persian rug

 

Your playful whispers intone in those exquisite curves

Flexing white porcelain opening of slow swan wings

 

And I held the source spring of my heart

 

Impatient now edges the tangled slides of your auburn curls

This gesture turns your shoulder; from behind lowered lashes you look

 

A predator’s toy in scratching claws lays its throat willingly bare

Ready to be devoured by a single word; of love

 

I stepped from the golden rim

 

Your palms carry the visions you have seen entranced

Coursing through your touch with eclectic imagery

 

There is a moment of succumb, of slavery, in you, my love

Relinquishing all but dignity, proud, honest, capitulation and senses devastation

 

I drink from the eternal fountain
