The Alembic of Forbidden Love
by Diar

His lips tremble with the kisses

he chain-links across the inside of my neck

as he shivers the vocal

chords of my soul

with the vibrating echoes

of the fulfillment of our overdue desire;

the remnants of my Orphic song,

primal rhythms mixed with musk and patchouli,

empty the vessels of their ecstasy into my ears

as I blindly run my fingers over the

sun-scorched, shipwrecked

verses of my longing

that lie scattered along

the tanned, sand-speckled shore of his skin.
