1 Poem by Peter Victor


Hues of deep blues
Blending with the reds
On the clean white sheets
Of the old wooden bed

Shadows hovering high
Waiting and watching
While spirits meet and greet
Indifferent to the heat

Of the two bodies
Bathed in sweat
Cloaked in emotion
They lay face to face

Heart to heart
And crazed
By each other

Bodies intertwined
Their thoughts mixed
Their fingers locked
Together now

They are
And they know
They will stay

Today, tomorrow
And thereafter
Heart to heart
Face to face

Hands, hearts and lives
Will remain always
Spirits together
