FOREVER NOT YOURS
by Gloria D. Gonsalves
You came and left fast like a thin Santa in a fat chimney
with promised gifts of goodness.
I remember your worshiping of my body like sacred petals of
a flower and heralding me your godly foreplay.
Your unsaid words showered me with deeds of heavenly award
that made Venus gasp with envy.
The kisses that you whispered to me were angelic hymns
of redemption, blooming what had long gone withered.
Caressing dormancy to awakenings of red purity and
passionate avalanches. Nothing of me was spared from melting.
I was flown into the heart of your eyes mirroring startling thirst
to be taken with the wings of adoration and submission.
Exhausted with imperfect melodies, you fine-tuned my hesitations
with forbidden baton of arousal.
Unleashing the timid façade, I dared to excel in the challenge
of unrestrained picnic with you.
The mighty pulse dwelled majestically, ready to tango with
every last longing until inhales of flesh befitted desires.
So a creed of passion was written, thou shall devour every moan
until the combe overflows with nectar.
Amidst my party of juicy emotions you were done and gone.
Alas, I was forever not yours!
