Desire - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

She electrifies the depths of my chambers
Akin to lightning trapped in a crucible
She resonates like a whisper in a grotto
To quiver my world in surging tides of ecstasy
Desire a sylph, lust her magnanimous epicenter
As she infects every strand of my native fabric
As my eyes breathe fire like a euphoric dragon
To capture the gaping wealth of the chassis of a goddess
Feasting on the buxom fruits of her evergreen oasis
As she lavishes caviar and chocolates basking on a quilt
For man to soar to the heavens grazing on divine meadows
Oh the beauty of a goddess in her birth stitch
Sculpted by brown sugar and submerged in maple syrup
Blowing an invitation in the wind in her orchestra of vermillion
As tides of yearning levitate in their unadulterated quintessence
Brushing every ecstatic atom of my heart's coir
For a humble man to sublime to tides of vapor, with a gentle lock of her lips
To fuse to the soul of a mystical sylph..........
