Cheetah Moon

Updated on January 14, 2011

I feel the rising heat

Supple are the muscles beneath

I stroke the intensity


Light fur I stroke

Taught sinews stretch as she moves

Panting loves illusions


Fingers trace the lines

Round thigh and buttock

Crevices behind her knee


Her brow I touch

Soft cheek lies on the pillow

Stars sparkle in her eye


We are born a purpose

We are purposed passion

The moon breathes a sigh


Forward in the night

Love groans about our lips

As she purrs and stalks a dream


Her fur is the sun

Its light a blazing passion flame!

Lodged deep in here my heart


Nigh on the twilight

Her eyes are the twinkle of the stars

That sparkle for my soul


Her smile is the moon

Ever growing and glowing

Cool warmth doth nourish me.


As dawn breaks upon the sill

All thoughts of love envelope me

I feel the rising heat.
