Love In Endless Blackness... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

Willowy and slender she stands
Her velvet gown billowing around her
She waits, trembling with anticipation
White flowers spill over her
Like a laced wedding veil
The clouds were huge cumulus
That blotted out the light
Of the moon and the stars.

She waited in deepest darkness
She waits in endless blackness
Invisible, he sprang from that darkness
Surrounding her, enveloping her, whole
Clasping her, with urgent kisses, he claimed her.

She swayed and sighed and moaned
Yet still he held her tight, relentlessly
Refusing to release her
While her silken petals slipped down unnoticed
Seductively he penetrated her
Right into to her innermost being
He became one with her, entirely.

Once he claimed her esscence​, ​ he released her
Softly like a whisper, he breathed, 'I must go now.'
Her slender trunk yearned toward him
Her leafy arms trailed after him
She became still once again
Filled with an emptiness never encountered

Partingly he murmured to her
'As night forever follows day,
So I'll come to you,
I'll find you even in the blackest night,
Watch for me my dearest!
Wait for me, my love! '

She longed for her captivat​or​ of the darkness
'For to be as a goddess in the eye of just one,
If this not be true love, then true love will I none.'
So vowed the flower to her lover, the wind....​
