Lightening broke the sky into a thousand glittering chips,
A silhouette illuminated; an ethereal streak of silver against the icy shine of dusk
High-born demeanor shielded under a pristine cloak.
A blink of an eye and she vanished, visible only to one.
Candlelight haloed in the fading daylight
Cast a bronze glow over mahogany walls.
Fingers worrying the clasp of her cloak, she stalled
An unknown daring flared and she ripped it off with élan
She stood, tall and proud and bare – a closet exhibitionist unleashed for his eyes.
Amber curls trailed as she leaned back into the tousled bed
With an artist’s eyes and a sculpture’s hands; he leisurely began.
Questing movements over every indent and curve,
Thumbing the sides and grazing the angles.
Sizzling flames caressed her
Her skin flushed and beaded with perspiration,
Wanton and exulting in her freedom, she laughed out in ecstasy.
His movements picked pace, fingers slashing and stroking towards the edge
Her heart raced and her blood sang
A singular tear escaped and she turned away, trembling and spent.
Slowly she went to him, and looked at the portrait – the paint still damp
Awash with rich colors – a lady, pale and ivory no more
Inflamed against the cold marble and crystal chandeliers
Mirroring her life
Hey eyes shone with secret promises
Honed and loved, the porcelain doll transformed to a fiery nymph
Silver scorched into Gold.
