Veiled in white, pristine in form,
she awaits her night of submission.
A dark night flickers with a few distant stars, silent witnesses to a cosmic foreplay.
Slowly, gently, and ever so surely,
he touches her.
Steady in gait, unyielding in stance, he overshadows her virgin aura,
Their union is a silent one.
As the stars go back to their mute existence,
they remain intertwined as lovers for what seems like an eternity.
Her radiance blushed and masked by the depth of his shadows.
Time stands still till they part
knowing they will meet again at some moment in time.
Her radiance is rekindled.
She was touched by the only one she longs for
the only one she soothes in silence every night,
from a distance.
