In the joyous light of our encounter

lay the darkness of our parting,

in our burning desire for each other

lay the cold detachment of later days.

The death of feeling and recognition

hid in the frenzy of spiralling climaxes

while the coldness of our goodbye

waited on our exhausted, satiated flesh,

lying on entangled embroidered sheets,

in a semi-lit room reeking of roses and sex.

You're using contrasting imagery to emphasize emotional extremes. I like the volley you create here, particularly the picture of post coital satiated exhaustion hovering over the ultimate finality of the relationship in all its coldness and emptiness. You paint with words.

The blend of the excitement and pleasure of their being together and the fear and dread of the parting is evident. Perhaps an illicit relationship?

We do go through extremes in our passions and there is plenty of that is this exquisite piece from you. Thanks for sharing.
