In Arabian Palace Alcove- A Tale of Love

In alcove of the palace on that night
I felt the rush of pleasure and delight
He pressed me to the wall and forced a kiss
I nearly fainted as I tasted bliss

The dark and handsome Prince of kingdom fair
Put hands through tresses of my raven hair
And then he burned my mouth with hungry lips
I felt the clutch of hands on my full hips

I could not breath, all thought had taken flight
He was of royal blood and noble height
Pervading every dream, he’d ravished me
And now each longing wish had come to be

He whispered in my ear, “I’ll make you Queen
Though servant now you are, your slave I’ve been
I’ve wanted you from moment you walked by
You fill my life, oh apple of my eye!

And then he brushed his tongue on heaving breast
His lips in need to be my bosom guest
He pulled back then and looked into my eyes
“The man who touches you, that man, he dies!”

“No one will taste you nectar, none but I
I’ll speak to Sultan, rules will change, I’ll try
To take as wife a slave common birth
For there is none as fairer upon this earth.”

He crushed me to himself and walked away
I waited for my Prince both night and day
A summon came to speak to Sultan then
“My son’s to wed, I’ll tell you where and when.

I found for him a princess fair and bright
Her skin is soft and supple, lily white
She is my brother’s girl, his next of kin
Forget him dear, his love for you is sin.”

I wept that night as I walked to my door
Constrained to take my life, the poison pour
When soon my ears did hear the wondrous sound
Of steed in haste his hoofs pounding the ground

He came to me and begged me to forgive
My love he needed if  he were to live
He laid me on my bed and did implore
“I have your soul, but now I beg for more.”

By candle light the Prince made love to me
I sighed, I cried, I died, he set me free
“Arise my love, let’s leave this cursed place
You’re now my wife, oh girl of angel face.”

And to his kingdom we bade a last farewell
My joy and rapture none by heart can tell
We lived a life in woods of sweet repose
He was MY Prince and I his Passion Rose.
