'In The Heat of The Night'

‘In The Heat of The Night’

The night is sultry and the languid breeze
Smells of sticky sweet Jasmine
As it clings to each salty bead of sweat
Dripping…
                 Dripping…
                                  Dripping…
From your brow, onto my breasts.
Waves break in the distance 
Echoing each tangled arch
And the sea, the warm, wet, surgent sea

Cools in a steaming mist against our feet…
Ebbing…Flowing…Ebbing…Flowing…
Stirring molten love’s embrace
Like ‘Dante’s Inferno’… 

Until the flaming, unbridled, night is stolen--
By the rays of the morning light.

    I loved this poem from the start, you remind me of my friend Muriel when we were sixteen she was describing her perfect day riding a white horse on the ocean on a windy day with the wind blowing in her hair, that was close to forty years ago, this poem reminded me of this, also your avatar looks like her, congrats. love vie

    What a fantastic and dynamically stirring write my friend! I really enjoyed the fabulous compassionate waves within your poem! My favorite lines have to be, "Stirring molten loves embrace" and "until, The flaming unbridled night was stolen" what incredible lines those were, I just love the passion within them! Wonderful write, Great Work!!
