Reality's Fantasy / Fantasy's Reality

Hands numbed by morality's bounds
Desirous lips
revealing, appealing
Protected by virtue's rigid confines.

Reality's fantasy offering
sweet slow pleasure
A liquescent duet
writhing within love's languid labor.
Lust's fragrant scent waxing and waning
with love's lifetide
climbing at a breathless pace
building to that final crescendo

Fantasy's reality
everpresent is
Smouldering 'neath the surface
wrapped in virtue's omnipotent facade
Reality's fantasy lies
awaiting her awakening
in anxious anticipation,
treasuring reality
coveting fantasy.
