Affinity

Guided hands feel their way,

Breathless sighs betray.

Fantasy fuels the ardent fire,

Two, transfixed, desire.

Immortal code betrays in flesh

Lovers touch, caress.

A mirrored need to seek the one,

Melded, they succumb.

Dissolving into liquid pool,

Tightened muscles overrule

All mental hope, facility

To rationalise what skin betrays.

Urgent passage to the place

Where blood suffuses; endless grace.

Crescendo in a wanton song,

Affinity where two belong.

Caravan For Two

Come walk with me through city streets

Where citizens may meet and greet.

Into the parks we’ll wander, while

We touch and gaze and fondly smile.

Then to the countryside we’ll go,

Where no one there will ever know

Why two who lie in fields of green

Share a love that’s rarely seen.

Two who walk as close as we

Share such clear affinity,

Passersby will nod and see,

No need of others. No, not we.

Into the desert, caravan

Will lead us where no woman, man

Or child has ever ventured, then

We’ll journey space until we learn

That souls united cannot falter.

Love will conquer. This cannot alter.
