I searched for you in a blanket of dreams,
A world of satin, weak in woven silk,
Through chambers of stone, pleasures hidden ghost.
A castle of nectar masks your desire,
Set in a molten cloak of emerald thread,
Forbidden grief keeps my love captive.
Somewhere coiled in twilight’s dark element,
A lover’s light intoxicates my gaze.
A prism of fire caught in a ruby web.
The chariot of delight calls me on,
Bringing alabaster horses of fire,
I gasp as the sapphire sunrise greets me.
In depths of grey I now discover you,
Greeted with fullness, possessed with passion,
My desire satisfied forever.
