Please Never Let Me Go
An echo of crimson nights call onto you
as I brush up against your tan skin with
For you are my abode
my shelter from pain
my perpetual home
The stars no longer silent;
my arms no longer abandoned.
The sensual desire within me ignited-
Your deep burning embers make my
shadows of silk turn to ash of passion.
For I am your lioness and you are my
mighty king preying only on my love.
PLEASE NEVER LET ME GO.
Disassociation used to inhabit my mind-
Forever further from reality with an
endless need to connect.
I do hope our vow of love’s constitution
seeks only a kismet of loyalty as years
and yes, the years pass.
Like dreams of a reverie floating
with lily pads of ivory and green,
you are my river of romance-
a gentle man sincerely serene."
