Gentle Madness~by Paul Lenzi



Gentle Madness


Image from

sensual shadows

drink a purpling moon

teasing dull silken glimmer

from scarves in their dance

along aubergine hollows

of candlelit thighs

softly flickering

fragrant with passion’s ablution

demure glints from peridot eyes

heighten moments

then falter and fade

receding beneath

the dim surface of time

in weak torture of

reconciled memory
