untainted fancy

Posted on Updated on

exhausted tears,
enflamed lips
forbidden solace
in sweetheart’s fingertips

droplets of honey
sweetness, that is craved
music of the heart’s truth
played, in a thousand different ways

rich in happiness
poor in gold
a tickling lullaby surrounds,
lo and behold

hush! a secret is being whispered
in these fleeting instants
immortal soul, condemned for love
love bestowed, a story told
