Poetic Infidelity


A perilous heart vulnerable
Not to the physical touch of another
But to the emotive lexicon
Of synergistic lips
For saccharine is surrender
To the tantalizing words
Articulated by an enchanting poetess
Words that gallop like a mustang
One with the svelte wind
Oh how sweet is the forbidden fruit
For infidelity is my Achilles heel
As I seek beauty crafted on parchment
Incarnated by sinuous lips
For expression is her voluptuous body
For the intellect is my erect manhood
As two worlds collide
In the name of poetic infidelity

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
