To love


to be loved

is a treacherous game


These bodies devoted

to wandering hands

fascination more potent

than reverie


Your fingers

bring to life

my eager, precarious heart

my once languid body


Your philter rushes

through my veins

as a great fervor

encompasses me


I sail your treacherous waters

tides of beauty, mystery

waters now tranquil

meet my placid eyes

"Sin Street"
