softer quest

January 15, 2010

he roams the vast plain
seeking his holy quarry
devouring all in his path
far off in the distance
the colors soften
and his heart loses focus
attraction replaces thought
wanting replaces need
and a new quarry is sought
beyond the conscious
where only unknown dwells
from the deepest hollows
there is a knowing
that this other he desires
will fulfill the destiny
he never thought to choose
deep within
his need for softness
filled in a moment
of a sacred gaze
in a perfect moment
while all the world remains
he departs
to join in the divinity
of her feminine wonder
of her necessary softness
of his deepest want
and his deeper need
until satiated
in a glance
in a beat
of a heart
and beating again
