The flowing waters of Eros

Traversed the infinite space

Where cold and stoic I lingered

Far from warmth’s embrace


Slowly, thus intrigued,

Approached the seeming cause

Of my dismantling

Without a care or pause


She walked amongst the field

And knelt beside this river

To quell a ravenous thirst

And to her lips deliver


A taste of such consumption

The fruit of that forbidden

A world that is but dark

When from her eyes is hidden


Yet did I behold in you

A tempting trail of thought?

What is it that bewilders me?

This heart unraveled and fraught


And when is time to cease?

For thus I know not how

Consume, devour, and exhaust me

In the forever that is now


And cast me as a star

Amidst the celestial sphere

To be a light that guides you

Until I disappear


To be a river within you

That pulses through your veins

Quivering with calidity

Lost in your refrains


For the flowing waters of Eros

Traversed the infinite space

And life was lived anew

When I beheld her face
