Ecstasy

entry picture

His discipline
was her most
desired mercy.

He subdued
and elated her
simultaneously.

He affronted
her with exquisite
hedonism.

She kept him
with sacrilegious
possession.

Reminiscent
of a memory,
she was yet
to treasure.

In their intimacy
he humiliated her,
until she learnt
humility.

Unfounded –
they remained unfound.

In ecstasy.

Splendid poem, bold, honest and luminous. The stanza about 'humility' is superb. Surely there are many kinds of 'conflict' enjoyed by both partners; and we bring to such a poem as this only what we actually know or secretly imagine.

I think you are a great poet, Katy.

Ecstasy sends love
into a domain
that is both
dark and light
you see when
no longer blind.
