To Her Phantom Lover
Sequestered in a maiden's chamber skyblue white blushed with pink, I close my eyes in the liquid northern night and feel the first warm waves come lapping at the periphery of my conscious mind:
barely perceptible, licking, skirting the edges of awareness until, behind my eyes, the vision shapes itself and you are there:
unknown and unknowable, but mine alone to outfit in whatever mask and costume suit the moment, that moment driven by lust, and all its hot red center pulsing with the waves that overwash it, my body dimly there, caressed by sheeting cool and smooth as the wrapping for the husk that is a mummy the core of that moist wanting ready to be pleasured.
The miracle mind transubstantiates my restless seeking fingers into yours; insistent they go striding over spiky stiffened peaks, then down the silky sands to find that lush oasis. Colors blaze against that barren landscape as I recognize your fierce but welcome probing.
With my last coin of resistance I redeem a few more moments of ascension 'til the blazing heat and rhythmic waves consume me, no redemption! those Saharan sands colliding somehow with the blue Pacific.
Sharply throbbing, all the purplegold receding, I surrender to the sound of one heart beating. 2011 RC deWinter
