Scruples

bydemure101©

Love shouldn't leave you sullied - when the sweat
makes pearls upon your breasts, upon your brow
and in your neck the downy hair is wet
and in your eyes and mind is only now,
when all your nerves and muscles form one whole
intent on that one other in our bed
and hands are at the gate and round the bole
why then allow chimeras in your head
of filth, of properness, uncalled-for thoughts
your youth instilled in you, mistaken shame?
There are no limits and there are no oughts
when we are joined in regal Venus' name:
love doesn't drag you down but lifts you higher,
a reborn phoenix, purified by fire.
