From "Soft":

"When hard and hot meet,
touch soothed,
opened doors,
love grew.
Beautiful brown Piscean
eyes, promised different,
1,000 pledges of eternal
swept aside barriers,
mended broken
Merging simply
Bliss came
inside cradling arms.
We fell,

From "Belonging":

"Sorry for skies,
awanting dawn,
her lover."

This poetry lives in fantastical poetic climes. A beautiful seduction in pink. Bring out the wine and chocolate, turn down the silk bed sheets, a night of passion and The Pink by Kimberlynne Darby Newton.
