The Priestess (original poetry)

Exploring your temple, the ritual begins,
whispering confessions of all our darkest sins.

Tracing runes over your skin with my finger tips,
sealing their power with caresses from my lips.

Kneeling before your alter and speaking in tongues,
drowning in your essence as life escapes my lungs.

The cup runneth over as if begging for more,
but your etchings on my back lead me to the shore.

Basking in the glory and staring in your eyes,
recognizing the truths escaping through our sighs.

Serving the same master, surrendered to desire;
Our penance is complete, we're consumed by the fire.

Awesome

The imagery is 💯 👌

Kneeling before your alter and speaking in tongues,
drowning in your essence as life escapes my lungs.

I love this the most (if of course, it means what I think it means) 😉

It was some cunning linguistics.

I fucking knew it!!!

Wow. I got fixated at some point. This is an original. Each line says something meaningful and related to the next giving you, or making you understand what the poem is about even for a layman. Good job sire

Beautiful and evocative as always 💗

Raiding the lost ark while searching for your treasure,
Degrading you bark while perched on this pleasure.
