M A Heathcote
Bid that I fly long-ways too the moon...
Bid that I burn in oceans endless sun.
Bid that I brave a pressing monsoon
But bid this love will never be undone.
Bid that we’ll barefoot walk around...
On crushed shells on this endless shore.
Let arms about you, be your silken gown
Be your gown mine wanton to explore.
Bid the seas waves no eternal rest
Bid mine eyes a kiss as they sleepwalk
Salt-lipped upon your amber chest
Bid away this writer’s block.
Oh darling, sweet darling persevere
Let the squids ink flow.
Let me whisper love into your ear!
And let mine ships prow rise, ergo.
Set sail I into this ochre gold costume.
A watercolour a pellucid womanly; disguise.
Passion, desire, will flower abloom...
But honestly this sun shall not sunrise.
Nor will I venture too gaze at the moon
Else like a pearl her soul be rough-hewn.
