Bodies molded into one, golden by the fire-light Heat between the lovers touch could warm the coldest night Golden locks around her shoulders; the softest hands upon her waist Of all the sweets and wine been tasted- his lips the sweetest taste. Her cheeks were red like roses, and his eyes were bright as day, Imprinted on the others heart, there could be no other way Gentle moans and gasps of love, ensconced in lovers game Eros, Philia, and Agape, with neither lover tame. His heart was her heart, his breath was her breath Making love until time's end, and then his death her death.

    Ah ha, I see some greek words. I really enjoyed this poem, and from my love of philosophy the greek references just added to it. Nice effect, I don't know if the almost shape of the heart was intentional, because I didn't check out the contest, but nice poem again.

    It wasn't intentional! But thank you for pointing that out! Also, it's nice to see someone get the reference to the Greek philosophy of love =)
