A Poem About False Love: Fool's Gold

She found her long lost paradise,

Within his dark deceitful eyes.

Like a miner rushing for gold,

He plundered deep her naked soul.


Moth submits to the blazing pyre;

Her hunger feeding his desire.

She yielded to sweet caresses,

As endless love, he professes.


Eyes shut tight she hides her weakness,

Velvet touch fills the emptiness.

Innate magnetic source took hold,

Surging sinuous streams unfold.


Quickening breaths, torrid fever;

Dam burst into gushing river.

No power could hold back the tide

As dubiety cast aside.


Tangled bodies glistening still,

As potent essence swirls and spill.

Into crucible of pleasure,

She held tight her pyrite treasure.


Bodies glow in rapturous bliss,

Cocooned inside warm lover's mist.

As waves give meed to water's edge,

Forever love, her solemn pledge.


A secret smile in knowing eyes;

The truth behind his guile and lies.

The miner found the mother lode,

The rush for lust his sacred code.

      Jo,

      You had me from your title

      Men like that are never idle

      They like to pan for gold

      Until you have given them

      Your heart and soul

      Beautiful, voted that way and shared

      Hugs with Blessings

      Flourish, so very true, I wouldn't want to go back there again....it's funny; but when we're young and naïve, it feels like life and death, but looking back one wonders what all the fuss was about. :) Thank you for stopping by, always appreciated and my best to you.

      I guess we've all met one of those! Then they only end up sad and lonely, don't they? Great choice of vocabulary, great rhythm - you hint right at the beginning that this is not going to end well, so we want to read on and find out why - perfect.

      Wow Jo,

      This is a very sensual poem, even though he was only after one thing. It is a very common scenario however. You described the throes of passion very well. Voted up.
