~ Forbidden Drink ~
Thick green meadows lay below
with weeping willow trees
Crisp new air blew soft around me,
barefoot in the breeze...
Lush foliage blooming everywhere
I wandered in too deep
Your fragrance there, upon the air
pure chivalry so sweet...
I heard your whisper through the trees
a voice so nigh of haunting
Yet calling to me - beckoning
my spirit trembled, daunting...
I stopped, and as I looked about
the leaves swirled 'round my feet
They danced as if to beckon me
my gaze & yours to meet...
Your laughter pure, came echoing
'twas then I saw your smile
And those eyes so pale of crystal blue
this search for you worthwhile...
You brushed your hair so soft, aside
you took my breath away
The sunlight shimmering on your skin -
a dream here in midday...
You stepped out from the willows
as you took me by the hand
But still you had not spoken -
this I could not understand...
You led me through a thicket
which revealed a hidden gate
A secret entry nestled there -
this finding - our's by fate.
Once inside, I stood in awe -
at what mine eyes did see,
An exquisite little garden
blooming feverishly for me...
A carpet of rose petals
stretched as far as eye could see -
With daffodils and hollyhocks -
you turned & reached for me...
With honeysuckle kisses
velvet lips crushed down on mine -
Your mouth was sweet like morning dew
You stole my breath, my heart was faint
you held me in your arms
Your mouth, it drank so deep of me -
transfixed by your charms...
You drank of me - and drank of me
I lay a wilted flower
There upon your bed of roses
overcome by all your power...
You lay beside me tenderly
a tear rolled down your face -
Like lovers e'er forbidden
there we died in sweet embrace...
*Drink of me*
