Naiad (Water Nymph)

The moody lake, a pastel sapphire glass

Infectious ripples scurry across the canvas

Her white-blond hair an ethereal waterfall

Floating in a mystic whirlpool as she lay

Dirty bare feet buried among green copses

Lips suckling a frost-kissed October cranberry

Delicately enchanting, menacing fairy.

Bony fingers stroke my ears in a figure of eight

Piercing green eyes trap me in this nebulous state

Opening wide the doors of my atavistic lust

I’ve lost my breath, as I try to exhale:

Longing to taste the ichor in her veins.
