Entangled and Entwined

(For you, James. You are the fire in my veins)

And so it begins again,
This dance we do.

Spinning about
Arm in arm
Soaring above the fray
Lifted to the heavens
Entangled and entwined

The taste of your lips:

Your fingers down my spine:
Shudders and tremors and quivering euphoria

Shoes and shirts and trousers
Scattered all around

I need to be inside you
But, the moment has to wait

(I let my kisses linger,
Let my hunger grow.)

There are other ways to please you,
And in our ardor we cannot haste.

After all these years,
Our momentum does not slow.

Finally, decisively:
We move toward the bed

Falling down
Arm in arm
Swimming against the tide
Lifted to the heavens
Entangled and entwined

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
