a sempiternal legacy-CA

they embraced in their dalliance-
her appetency held a depth so deep
he just couldn’t resist placing his
hands around her barren waste-
(she reaches for him with ardor)

for tonight was auspicious and 
ebullience showered them with
the twinkles only stardust spreads;
forever scattering allure and
passion with strength and hankering
sowing their love with intentions of...
savoring each emotion

they conflated as if they were always 
predestined to celebrate marriage 
different from the rest-
the assuage erased the anguish;
what was once atrocious is now
emollient (softer than ivory silk)

when hope goes awry, they stand
tall side by side, each wearing pride-
the crookedness of life transformed
into candor and honesty
she decided to absolve her demure
feeding the emptiness with the
nourishment of his reliability and
fervency for her brilliant mind

two auras ~kaleidoscopic~
enveloped by heaven's cobalt hues,
desire for love prevails with affection

her felicity swathed his soul,
his serendipity ran through her 
veins as if she was sheathed 
by his charisma 
a sempiternal legacy was left
for the coming generational bonds
yet to be formed-

love in the making saved their  
hearts from breaking

You pulled out the vocabulary stops on this one. I like this line "what was once atrocious is now emollient (softer than ivory silk)"
