Free Verse # 147 (labyrinth of desire)

Labyrinth of desire,
the shade of your eyes
falling over nocturnal skies,
rearranging stars and moans
into a crazed dance
of inescapable fire.

~

In the middle of the night
your whisper, like a butterfly,
strokes against my cheek,
and my heart shivers yearning
to be embraced by your heat.

~

My heart’s flame sways and flickers,
its light and shadow dancing on your face,
painting the warmest verses of a home
from your womb, unfolding.

~

If dawn were a flower
it would blossom in your eyes.

~

The rivers of your passion
run through my heart,
intimating an ocean
your breath alone imparts.

~

My breath,
a poem of infinite warmth
unfurling through your body,
unlocking the curls
of your nocturnal hair,
and filling my cup
with the rouge of your cheeks.
