I hover back and forth under a dim lamp Waiting for his grip to open the door; My breath pulses at a beloved’s sight As one circle of tear envelops these eyes-- That my body melts away... down to its core When nights faraway plead for his return. Though a soldier’s toil rakes a heart in silence Never can love be more intensely pure... For he is an eternal fire, a song, a universe Ordained by destiny to cradle life’s hours; Commanding time its unfolding of our dreams— I am his soul-woman, the moonglow amidst tempest While he, he protects me with his blood The rush of zeal on ember and quietude, Cherishing my essence with reverence... In devout fervor, he saves me from the darkness Of waiting through long evening’s haul--- And into the gloam of morning, I breathe him in as mine. --------------- 07/04/2019 Slave To Love Contest sponsored by John Hamilton
