Poem written for my lovely other half early on in our relationship
|Swathed in softened skin,
a snug, solid chrysalis.
but blind in decadent indulgence,
but thistle, hibiscus,
lips like subdued sunlight
skimming over fevered skin,
blooming in its beauteous light.
Gentle hands carefully caress
the antiquated caterpillar cocooned within.
pours through pouting lips,
uniting two in tremulous transformation.
Layers peel away like rose petals,
lifting the veil
on burgeoning creation.
Awaking from the dormancy of Morpheus,
creatures arise anew.
Unfurling opalescent wings,
fragile and trembling
on the precipice of shattering.
safe, secure, we soar.
For Katherine, my greatest muse and inspiration. 28 lines.
