SUNSET




Silver sands caressed their bare feet, late evening on the beach
Tequila sunset, the sky ablaze, almost within reach.
Fingers intertwined, their souls were one
Alone together with a carmine Sun.

Silhouetted black, the palms swayed
They danced while the music played
A heavenly orchestra was on song
Beat for beat their hearts matched, nothing went wrong.

Into the cool waters they waded
Ultramarines, cobalts and azures, in the dim light colours faded.
He held her tight, never would let her go
A pang of fear, banished, too base to show.

The sky craved the sea, the touch of the froth
He craved her, like a flame-seduced moth
The heavens stooped and kissed the sea
He longed to taste her, and it set them free.
