28. The Small of Her Back

Those long lost empty palms,
Of longing and visual debauchery,
Imagination so wild,
Yet curves so highly fragile,
The fire within so warm,
Fiery eyes, shivering fingers and thighs calm,
Oh, she missed him all night long,
The wait was felonious and desires enraged,
Of endless moments and centuries sacred,
A forest of his passion,
A beauty mirroring psalm,
A footstep before caution,
A kinship so pure,
Those scars chanting his name
and her body owned along,
One knock on the door
and they again fell for the storm…

    I am conflicted, I don’t know if I love the art more or the words. This is just beautiful and I love the combination f=of your words and her art.

    PS: What a coincidence that I read this today πŸ˜€
