sits

within desire opens,

her restraint isnโ€™t only

physical,

she is bound to His

spirit

her understanding, this

love

she knows itโ€™s limits, are

unlimited

she opens her heart

willingly,

listening to its inner

whisperings.

Her submission is

trust,

never doubting

what He offers

in return is

an endless

chain,

The title is taken from a painting by Jack Vettriano, O.B.E., b.1951 – oil on canvas. I very much like his works. About his artistic style: Vettriano is a self-taught artist in drawing and perspective who manipulates paint in veiled glazes and meaningful shadows.[40] Vettriano’s style has been compared to those of Hopper and Sickert, and his scudded beaches to those of Boudin.[41] In many of his paintings, there is a hidden narrative, in enigmatic compositions, a starting point for dozens of short stories.[42] https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Vettriano

the forever season,

hers alone.

in His iridescent glow

she sits quietly

as He captivates

her with His charm.

this rapture takes hold,

grows spreads like a virus

within her.

theirs has always been a

templed relationship

based on their own

divine intervention,

the one and only now,

desperate to remember.

together theyโ€™d play

their game of give and

take with love sick words.

her quarantined syllables

are like every touch,

finding its path to the

up ended truth

breeze, sweetly

whispering to her,

join me our time

is now, sit beside me

on bended knees.

has come too respond.

Quietly she answers

with her treasured

beautiful inside words.

i have no bouquet

of roses, just this one

i give to You which was

nurtured by my love

during your absence.

She knows He will

Boxes*

She knew

there was no room

for her.

The sincerity

of words written,

shattered emotion,

carried fragile lines.

Waiting

each day

adding another

promise penned

joining others.

Letters, cards

laid to rest

in boxes,

waiting.

Becoming fragile

with each

passing year,

waiting.

Life moved on

time stood still;

the boxes

waited.

Bound secretly

she was

that warm

summer night

to One.

her heart

waited,

in silence.

she gazed upon

dusks violet light,

knowing the

boxes

waited,

within them

she placed

her words,

Bound

Love

Promised
