Azure surges its finest glints of gold
within her look of high noon
radiating worlds of warmth in fivefold
Night stands motionless
capturing our connection
underneath the material in a passionate plus
Inside this weekend moment
her laugh paints ones heart
splashing it with hues felt in the open
Her lips touch mine,
craving one another we strikingly combine
Ecstasy rushes throughout our veins
Within our lock, eyes dilated with lust
Unraveling in heights we brightly combust
By faultless design,
around the tides of life,
we set our sails tonight
Driving home with her in ones mind
feeling absolutely refined
One cannot stop longing to watch her
under the near moons ahead
to feel again what was unsaid
