The Freshening Beauty Of Truth

Lyrical musicality of shower’s warm raindrops…

Hypnotizing,
Spilling over my nakedness,
Dewdrop drumming out
Pernicious fatigue,
Filling my ears,
Drizzle’s constant rhythm,
Purposeful, pure,
Relaxing.

Luxurious healing of drenching, liquid heat…

Rivulets running downward,
Coursing body’s sculpture,
Dilating arteries,
Enrobing muscles,
Blanket of soothing,
Draping,
Soreness, aching, abolished,
Mending, me.

Undeniable, freshening, beauty of truth…

Your bare chest,
My back receiving,
Head resting,
My shoulders, your pillow,
Wet tawny tendrils,
Your hair gracing,
Washing my skin,
Your arms wrapped around me,
Clasping my chest,
Filling my heart,
Whispering your love,
Knowing that you are mine,
And I am yours.
