Confident in his gaze, he takes her hand.
She is mesmerized in his power;
Natural or unnatural, she does not know.
She is lost in a whirlwind of turbulence.
Knowing feelings beyond any she could have,
In her past self, conceptualize or realize.
At once, she is imprisoned
In the strong arrogance of his presumptive
Grasp; at once, she surrenders, again.
She sees him as a strong tower;
She knows not that he is as lost…
And afraid and imprisoned…
As she is.
They share an instant of recognition,
As they fall deeper into their passionate
Embrace – this love, complete and present,
They asked for and received.
