~Life's Eternal Embrace~


When the joy of being alive opens the rivers of life...

~Love's Awakening~

He held me close, as close

as I could stand

even in that moment I could smell

the strength of that man

He fumbled his fingers across my gullet

bending it back at will

as I felt myself disappear

beneath his umber appeal

I thought to myself, here I go again

falling head over heals

pretty soon I'll be giving into this

strange enchanting thrill

but it wasn't often I found myself

drapped in mystical pleasure

It was almost as if I was running a race

lost in times endless gallant space

Then it occured to me as I shuttered

from the passing suttle breeze

all my emotions were now at total ease

I no longer had to ponder loves hollow debase

float upon the rivers of life to escape

for I was now gazing upon humanities eternal embrace



This piece depicts the souls journey into a place of serene bliss and transformation.

Abstract, semi abstract and concrete, but in all easily comprehensible.

However, sad thing is all caps make reading bothersome

I felt the passion. I felt the concupiscence, and that's a compliment. Happy to stop by.
