Among Roses and Wine...........Shakespearian

My heart is lost among roses and wine
while words of Bill's dark lady make me sigh,
emotions speak of purest love divine
the hidden feelings lips cannot deny.
Your simple touch to set my heart ablaze
declares our love is true; before we kiss
your bluest eyes absorb my wanton gaze,
and in a crowded room only love exists.
The constant craving teases out my thoughts,
to form the words and write in tongue-tied tales
and mere desires become my heart's consorts
in breaths of love in creation's bright trails.
My destiny within your loving arms,
my Sapphic heart cannot resist your charms.
