Passion

Charmed and charming by turns
While the shot-reverse-shot of our lives entranced.
Your eyes smoldered cliche-like promise
My parted lips glossed over
Close-ups emoting disembodied passion.

Incendiary. I could not
Wait – your voice, compelling,
Lust
So unseemly, unheard of, unexpected
But I held your interest
With tropes of lace, lipstick

Afterwards? Well,
Distance is enchanting.
