Lightning and Thunder, She Wore

El Relámpago
words that disguise
what she was
what she wore
what she wanted

Un Éclair
words that lure
words that entice
words that seduce
what she wanted from me

Et Lyn
words that enlighten
words that illuminate
words that equal the sun’s brightness
what she wanted when we made love

words that enrapture
words that endear
words that describe
what she wanted, not ending, never parting

Lightning and Thunder
she wore proudly, elegantly
seemingly the only other lover
I’d ever known,

The only other lover,
not having an equal
regardless of the language between us
the length of time, the whisper
her voice enthralling

Luring me into
her storm…..
