Vintage love

red wine vintage

The smooth texture of your words,

Blended with the page in elegant finesse,

Full-bodied expression of your love,

Intoxicating my heart and mind.


I feel the intense flavor of your kisses,

Lavish and lingering in their innuendo,

Your fingertips’ scent nuanced upon my lips

Of passion’s high notes and ruby-red flush.


We walk through the vineyards of our minds,

In search of the fresh fruit from the vines.

Sun-blessed and ripened, nourishing ardor,

A vintage afterglow completes our harvest.


As I ponder the fresh bruise on my lips,

I long for repeated moments like this,

When your eloquence swirls me around

And your scepter is tipped to the crown.
