passion (poem)


what is passion

but intense desire

a torrent of kisses

cascading over two bodies


entangled arms and legs

and hair

surging over the sheets

a surf

washing the shore

in endless motion


like the sea

gently lapping at

the beach

pulling at the sand



tender caresses


but for a faint sighing

echoed infinitessimally

in love

tracing patterns

across wet sand

over and over


the sea

runs its fingers

over the beach

picking at the particles

leaving its marks

in wet kisses washed over

by more kisses

building up anew

a storm

beating against the shore


thrashing the sands

thrown up in throes

of passion.
