Love's Journey

Two glistening bodies writhing torridly 
on sparkling white sand under a lover's beckoning moon 
savagely captured in the intertwining vines 
of surrendering passion and unquenchable lust
rocking to the penetrating rhythm 
of the waves lashing against the surf in endless repeat
hopelessly adrift on the sea of their own love 
swept away by the emotional vitriol of a tide within 
living only in the torrent of now not knowing or caring 
what the breaking light of dawn will bring.

Will the loving hands of destiny scoop our lovers up
and hold them securely against her breasts, 
or will they be snared in the treacherous whirlpool 
of deception and spiral helplessly downward?
Will their love be a enduring living masterpiece for all to admire and emulate,
or will it be a frozen monument to what once was forever to dwell in love's abyss?

With their frail hands clasped together two aging lovers walk along a moonlit beach
remembering a night long ago when their desires caressed the sand under their feet
forever mindful of the divine intervention 
that helped them along life's perilous journey.

    I thank You for your comment and mentioning the line with "vitriol" in it because that one I worried over a bit. I wanted to illustrate extreme intensity here which I accomplished, but the word worried me because it is to often heard in connection with violence or violent uprising. I am glad my gamble paid off.

    Thank You Nette! I always appreciate all the compliments folks send my way. When you guys nail what I was aiming for in a piece, it feels especially good and you did that here. "Dear Rosebud" is another very beautiful and intense piece that I wrote recently.

    I want to thank you for the comment Drake and I love that you quoted a line that was particularly vexing to me. As a fellow poet, you can appreciate how difficult it can be finding the perfect words for a line. It has taken me a week or more on a line to arrive at what I want to say. Kim

    This is lovely! So glad that love wins in the end. Very descriptive and passionate! :)

    I thank you for the wonderful comment Eileen. When I write I see myself as a painter, words are my colors and how I use them are my brush strokes. No one wants to read a boring piece of poetry anymore than they want to look at a boring painting. Kim
