Cupid’s Errand

lustful lover
siren without a song
clings to one love above all
holds fast during the falls
to soar the north winds
to east of the sun
staying on cupid’s errand

Tranquil

distant sounds of
the boisterous creek
the crackling fire’s
flickering flames holding my gaze
distilling my crowded thoughts
smell of cinnamon sticks
transporting me to tranquil
wrapped in the arms of love
nibbles along jawline to earlobes
controlled exhale of passion’s breath
the warmth of the fire no match
for the fire you stir within

Untamed Heart

‘Untamed heart’
That’s how he thought of her
He had never been in love
She was unaware of
the effect she had on him
On any man
She took his breath away
Made him feel things he thought
he had a firm grip on
Out of his element and out of control
he lost focus when she was around
Exasperated
he wondered if everyone knew
If they saw how his breathing changed
When she was around
