For Eternity

I want to gaze for eternity
upon your molten copper eyes under pale moonlight.

I want to hear your lion’s heart beat
calming the thump, thump, thumping of my fractured heart’s song.

I want to feel the heat of your hands
warming my frightened body, burning fire in my soul.

I want to taste my tears as they fall
while we drown in tempestuous impassioned love-waves.

  1. These Landay are incredibly heart-stirring, Linda! ❤️ I especially love; “I want to taste my tears as they fall while we drown in tempestuous impassioned love-waves.” Thank you so much for writing to my final prompt! 😘😘💐

  2. It is sad that such a passionate form is written by women who are too often in arranged marriages to much older men, without passion. Maybe that is why they write so. The last couplet stands alone beautiful.
