Unbridled Love

I drift upon the soft sweet fragrance
of flowering jasmine in your ebony hair
drinking the moist breath of you
poured from lips of vintage wine
your beauty wrapping me in a blush
of intoxication as your angelic wings
unfold the pleasures of unbridled love
A love as fragile as the autumn rose
weeping dewdrops with each petal
that silently falls
A love as pure as a precious stone
(formed from the silent petals
that have fallen
from the autumn rose)
A love fused into a crystal
that lines my fluttered heart
Embracing we lie together
between dawn and twilight
