This will last forever

It’s fitting

one of our most

lust filled meetings

(lips crushed like petals,

hand along a thigh

and the whistle

of catching breath,

and birds)

took place along

an unbeaten path

in a forest

bigger than you imagine

but smaller than

our love.

 

It’s fitting

because a path

no one takes

is how we found

one another.

Hidden and secret

beaten by twigs

and overreaching leaves,

we love in loud silence

(a tongue which tastes

of sugar

and a heart blooming

with peonies

and daggers).

 

It’s fitting

because we

were dwarfed

by trees

a hundred years old

as luscious green

as our new born

desire, because

fairytale expectations

have taught us

it is wrong

to love like this

(one hand cupping chin

whilst the other

charms the magic

from within).

 

To love like adults

with the firm belief

this will last forever.

Not because we are

chasing a happy ending

but because we have

each other.
