on the cusp.

trawling turquoise seas,
cast adrift,
                   your eyes caressing fitful slumber,
                        whispering paens,
           soothing the ache,

of this weary traveller,
parched,
               thirsty,
                            alone,

cresting waves,
                           treading water,
             hither and thither,

a tattered heart,
                             a wounded soul,
        bathing my being,
                                      nestling,
       in cocooned dreams of your honeydew lips,

seeing,
            feeling,
                         tasting,
                                      your breath,

soaked in visions of you,

the mirage,
                    a crescendo fanning flames of desire,
                                            of love, lust, tremulous fingers,

brushing your hair away,
sipping kisses,

consumed by the furnace,
your body, mine,
                                    entwined,

hungering for your tongue,
fiery,
         insistent,
                         true,

soaring above vagabond skies of blue,
             unshackled at last,

             craving only you …
