By Chuck RitenouR

This is not an epistle of love declaring

tender surrender, faithfulness

and riding the tide of emotional bliss.


I was lost the first time

your eyes, like a pair of powerful cats

feasted in the darkness of my soul.


While a delicate fruit forbidden,

you are always on my mind's table

just beyond my eager reach.


naked, you drink my blood

from the silver goblet

regal priestess

of a cult long forgotten.


"Dare you risk eternal

damnation for one night's pleasure?"

In a whisper, I always answer
