Beautiful Villain

You swept in, you beautiful villain

Lost in words far deep within

Cast away by thought and feelin’

Found anew, us―mind and skin.

There you laid, the lust of splendor

Caught I was in waves revealing

Passion forged my soul’s contender  

Burning, yearning, sweating, sealing.

Honest kiss, a treasure’s curse

Masking fib amid the hidden

Beating hearts rewriting verse

Moans of lore now thus forbidden.

Then surprise, the glare of morning

Knew my thoughts were gently stealin’

Eyes, the voice, and lips forewarning

Tales of flame, allure, my villain’s.
