MISTRESS...


With words, they met under the glory of freedom, in a place where the great seas, the highest mountains and time brought together two hearts without a single touch between them.

Her face represented timeless beauty and love through expressions of erotic desire only revealed in private fantasies.

Beyond eternity, love was the flower he gently placed in her tresses through the silence of romantic words.

Beneath her silken veil were the sultry eyes he longed to look into for the mystery and allure of a poetic life.

Today, her beautiful portrait sits within the frame of his heart as he writes the most eloquent words for her in the language of love.

Due to time, distance and circumstance, she reluctantly acknowledges her role as mistress, for life has been most unkind to her while searching for the beauty of love.

With longing and desire, she waves at him with each flicker of her eyelashes as if his kisses can actually touch her naked eyes.

"Mistress"…the title bestowed on her by the greatness of a love she willingly accepted from the poet - her poet - whom she knows will never embrace her or kiss her with tears.

  11. Andy the artwork is perfect for this poem...which feels very much like a beautiful love story, unfullfilled, yet still longing for completion..knowing that this will not come to pass...yet held within its perfect fullness within the heart...always yearning....
