Lust

Lust
16" x 20" acrylic on canvas panel

The wind taught in a thousand whispers
and each one underscored 
the vast lessons of the Silence within

Yet She sat unmoved by these teachings,
animated only
by the memory of His face

He moved Her in ways that defied logic,
morphing Her into a stranger
clothed in a silken shield of lust

For His touch obliterated each mirage
She cast around Herself
to keep from being

Beautiful.
