An Archaic Love Story

Two resonant hearts in a whirlwind trance
Basking in the essence of true romance
As the moon smiles from her lofty perch
Creepy shadows applaud from their lurch
Caviar and chocolates beside a glowing lass
Vintage champagne bubbling in a pristine glass
As the night blazes under galaxies of stars
Two destinies converge, Venus and Mars
Earth the chosen frontier for the advent of mirth
As two souls lie on a quilt next to a bonfire's hearth
For sparks to dazzle from here to eternity
To bring forth affection in its naked felicity
Two god-fearing souls with blessings from above
As rings exchanged hands in the tradition of love
Now waiting for the call of the wild to fervently grace
For two bodies to unite on a quilt stitched of lace
As echoes from the ground ransacked the breaching heaven
Applauding were the gods basking in seventh heaven
An archaic love story pristine in her essence
As passion blossomed from love like a floral inflorescence
As Aurora beckoned, exultant smiles were seen
Clasped together on a lonely quilt, gazing at Ra's sheen
