A lonely night
Nurtured the destiny of a union
One with an unusual ambience
You can hardly fathom,
For them; it was an
'Euphorian island'
A secret solace,
Safe and secured.
The night was engraving; and
Their words were spoken in silence
The plate of desire
Was garnished with sin
Yet; the bond they shared
Was as strong as the wind.
Somewhere in her mind,
She had wish to control the tide
Of his pleasures; but
Rather she sags deep
Into the bliss of his warmth
And together they escaped
Into eternity.
This moment will pass,
But these memories
Will hold,
And if tomorrow
In judgment they stand;
It will be a true account
Of a passion once forbidden!

    an engaging account of what seems like a personal solace, however forbidden. Beautiful piece.
