Surrender - Poem by Pamela Davison

Midnight in Montego Bay
Found me quivering in the debris
Of my Captain's fantasies;
Profound yearnings
Yielding to something deeper.
It brought me to my knees.

Fire and amethyst scorched
This breathless and willing hostage,
Alienating inhibitions
With a sense of urgency,
Begging for release.
Wonderment could not be contained.

Surrender came easy
Beneath the pulsating and aching throb
Of love's impoverished need
Manifested in secret touches
And whispered words.
Yes, you are my Captain.

So it is here,
Where lovers gorge themselves
On imagination,
That I relinquish to the power
Magnetizing us,
And it brings me to my knees.

    Never in Montego... but in Cancun I once was a Captian.... and I loved it that she looked up to me...smiling... Well written and good play on words. Rick (Report)Reply
