Eternal Love

With skin a ripened cocoa bean
her stately beauty struck the
heart of many men.
Royal bloodline,
fluid with courage,
love for her people.
A regal princess set to slavery.
Still her heart sang freedom
for her people
and love remembered her heart.

Fair sailor of promising strength
reviews the task of capture.
Upon her, his eyes linger,
favoring her defiance,
her will to speak of freedom.
Enchanted by her beauty;
soft, bronze shimmer with
fire in her soul;
he breathes in her perfume.

As one with the other,
uniting sews the peril
that lies ahead.
Branded they shall be for
surely their time is not now.
Love among such ruin is
fraught with peril.
Triangle of deception told
alas, broken hearts abound.
Tears will seal their fate.

Bound by devotion,
souls in love reach for each other
darkness closing in, sound fading.
Clinging in their tomb
of forever together
in the life of death.
Sadly lovers journey ends
upon the days of toil and slaves.
Entombed forever with the
sign of treason and adultery.

Left as souls flying
through the sands of time
when once again,
earthly unity is found.
The touch of flesh does sate the need.
Time has sealed a nation,
time has healed a wound.
Amid the rubble,
climb to freedom,
two hearts alive with the soul's love.

Another moment grasped,
looked upon in reverence,
remembered, unwritten, unrivaled.
Familiarity, as the flesh finds
the mate among a new world.
Her skin, a ripened cocoa bean,
bronzing his fair chin with
a love alive through eternity.
