"Illusion"
Poem by: Despoina  
In midnight’s silent latest hour
She’s walking to the beach.
Scented in summer jasmine breeze;
Form succulent, as peach.
*
Attired in chiffon-white dress,
Each strap thin like a thread.
The salty air keeps cuddling her,
Allures inside her head.
*
She slides out of her fine dress,
Exposing gifted grace.
Distant inflections, billowy shouts
Forebode of a well-known face.
*
Abysses’ black, etching her skin,
Adorns the ‘water nymph’.
Closing her eyes, she fantasizes
To live in her knight’s myth.
*
He’s riding on a savage horse;
asking to find her shape.
Determined, in insatiable look,
He yearns to touch her nape.
*
He anchors on her tender lips;
He lifts her in one arm.
Indulging of his handsomeness,
She succumbs to his charm.
*
He holds her tightly, cheek to cheek;
She barely can breathe.
 Heated desire exhales her bust;
Condemned, she starts to seethe!
*
‘Venus’ and ‘Mars’, infusing love;
 Stars keep composing airs.
 Ignited in eternal love,
‘They’ walk to heaven’s stairs.
*
Consumed in dream of knight’s myth
  She runs of her seclusion.
Opens her eyes to realize
She lived through an illusion.
