She looked deep in my eyes
Her full lips approached mine
Her heavy breathing blew upon my face
Like the tempest that sweeps away
The langour of days past.
I was dazed with anxiety
Was it the moment they all sought?
Was it the path they all choose?
Was it the destiny they all yearn for?
Her demure way
Her inward looking eyes,
Her silence evading the alienating words
All were setting the snaring ambush.
I breathed heavy before submitting
I sighed the acrid air off my lungs
Another world’s to end
At the horizon of élan.
