Savior in Satin (Poetry)

spotlight on a red curtain

I may be no economist

But we’ve all gone broke

Everything’s gone amiss

Murder is all she wrote

Too many slashing wrists

Sex is the only antidote

Drenched in carnal bliss

Think I’ll go for a swim

In your ocean I’m gonna soak

My little savior in satin

What have I done to evoke

Your succulent candy kiss

When you stroll on in

Nothing’s as good as this

Smooth as silk, hot as fire

Break down my icy stare

Fill my soul with desire

Coal-fired lust for you bare

Can’t help but perspire

Sitting cold as you prepare

To dredge me from this mire

Sweet savior in satin

Loving with reckless abandon

In these moments, we’re free

Wrap yourself around me

Burn me alive, set me aflame

Our sin is all that we need

Too in love to feel any shame

My savior in satin

Oh, sweet alluring dove

Let us both imagine

A world with only our love

Floating free in ecstasy

Among the stars above

Let it be no fantasy

Our lives are a catastrophe

But in this space, we’re free

Eternal rapture of intimacy

But we’re only mortals, you see

Doomed to eternal agony

At least in the deepest hells

It’ll still be you and me
