Our Beautiful Storm

Warm as the night was
you shivered as I drew you closer,
and we descended into a maelstrom,
waves washing over us,
so fierce,
yet so gentle.
Carefully we chartered a course
and found a safe harbour,
devouring our storm,
now utterly spent,
sated.

  2. Quite sensual, if I’m reading it metaphorically. Love can be passionate and gentle….a storm of passion and a safe harbor of welcoming arms. ๐Ÿ™‚
