Magnum Opus

Magnum Opus

A Poem by Nautili

Do not tell me you love me
with an airy kiss placed
absentmindedly upon my brow,
as you leave to court the daylight;
frenetic attempts to fulfill
her capricious demands.
Kiss me fiercely, firmly upon parted lips,
as though you can not abide the absence between-
as though your profession, which insists
upon your committed attention,
( like a jealous lover desiring your capable touch )
can not compare with what awaits in the night,
Your hair caressed with cool, soothing fingers,
 your weary head warm upon my lap.
