Love Poetry: “Stalemate” by Gary R. Hess – A Poem from ‘Temptation’s Trust’


Her star-lit eyes gazed
upon my Earthly flesh.
A moment lapsed.
Her eyes escaped me.
Downward they moved,
and upon her breath
she awoke a sound of pleasure.

Onward we danced
this game of passion
for days, weeks, months.
Will our desires overcome us,
or will we pirouette
until the moon no longer shines
and the sun no longer radiates
its massive shard of hope?
