Chivalry plus ultra

Inspired by my partner

My partner born in Sevilla, Spain. Photo taken where I was born, in Auckland, NZ

A Spanish knight caught my eye.

The sweetness escaping

from his gaze sublimed me -

He greeted me with warmth.

Made the tingles melt

across my cheeks.

Swept a breeze

across my skin.

Enveloped me

in a shroud of heat.

His voice spoke words -

like a melody in perfect harmony -

Pulling at the strings

beneath my bosom.

He chanted the beat

of my pulse.

He gifted me a divine temple

placed at my crown -

Jeweled with ruby roses and emerald leaves -

surrounded in a golden aura.

Forgo my royalty -

As of this moment

I am a slave to this love.
