Love’s Silhouhette


In twenty years of respecting love’s art,

Between us some things are never discussed.

There’s a silence we both know we can trust

Beyond simple words that cannot impart

The emotions from which love’s longing starts.

Strong feelings I struggle to readjust

In the complication of love and lust

For a true man who has mastered my heart.


You’ve claimed and sustained my intricacies

In quiet moments I’ll never forget

So anointed by our sweet faithfulness.

Thus, in the midst of pure delicacies,

A fire reflects two dark silhouettes

Entangled in love’s unlimitedness.
