A fabric of bamboo

Delicately suspended

Like a floating stillness 

But assuredly

Of potent animation

Her face intimates

The underlying cause

A heightened state

The sensual dimension

Into which a heart could journey

Seeking connection

Possibly perfection

This is her

This is her

Is this her

The depth of those dark pools

Their inscrutability entrapping

Desire overcomes 

Desire is all

A promise of treasure

The invitation of her mouth

Held from striking

Awaiting yours

To furnish as sacrifice

A soul in contortion

This is her

This is her

Is this her
