Once upon a jazzy night
while fireflies knocked on windows
desire soaked air carried
windy whistles to palm trees
veils were lifted
revealing pure
                   or impure
                                luxuria
the sweet taste of yes!
danced on tongues
as two dreams silently slipped
between satin covers

sated sighs were the only communication necessary
and they lived passionately ever after

"the sweet taste of yes!
danced on tongues
as two dreams silently slipped
between satin covers

sated sighs were the only communication necessary
and they lived passionately ever after"~ Oh this is a lovely treat!...not only is this enticing, but also gives the romantic hearts what they desire... a wonderful "happy ending".. ~xoxo~:)

A syncopation of desire under silky satin feelings
when love and passion blend in a symphony of
bursting notes in a composition of repertoire...

A beautiful painting and sweet and kind words of love. Good to fine good music and the comfort of another. No weakness in the amazing poem of passion.

Same to you :)
Wonderful. First it is beautifully phrased - "the sweet taste of yes" is a lovely turn of phrase. Second there is such delicious alliteration. Third the "pure or impure luxuria" was a deft touch, hinting at so much.

But what I really loved was the last line. Not only for the hope of a happy ending but for the subtle but important shift from the stand happily ever after. If only such endings were true.
Thank you for sharing this.

"passionately ever after"...this is how your poetry will forever live on, Lydi! Your create your own brand of classic. the sweet, sweltering passion, the sensuality and depth of this poem carry the reader to dizzying heights. This is just sublime poetry, my friend. Loved it!
