Pristine white wings, dipped in blood
not marring their perfection, nothing could.
A knowing twinkle in endless, loving eyes
passion burning bright, no way to disguise.
A hand reaching out to touch across worlds
the magic of desire seizes and unfurls.
Enthralled and flushed crimson, staining soft, ivory skin
to want someone so deeply must surely be a sin.
A song of love yearning, a fever in my veins,
lifting arms to capture, if just a tiny strain.
Powerful notes through the universe surge
birthed from the flames, two souls emerge.
Immortal eyes to mortal ones, lock in surprise
a connection so strong it ignites the skies.
Oh that the world were a merciful place
that I could but touch his lovely, burning face.
Gazes hold with conviction as two hearts quake
reaching for the other, afraid for the moment to escape.
Like Icarus that flew too close to the sun
helpless to stop it, in desperation I run.
Consumed deeper than need, all earthly cares I shun
with abandon he hastens to me and destiny binds us as one.
Lightening strikes all around, energizing the night
as our fates were sealed together by love at first sight.
