Droplets of Verse: ‘A Promise of Heaven’

On our honeymoon
We basked and we bathed
In reflected glory
Your arms tight around me

It was an adventure
An international orgy
Across lands and seas
The future was ours

As marriages go
The power was with you
I sat in your shadow
You smiled down at me

Now I’m stripped bare
Naked, with a hunger
Betrayed by a handshake
And a promise of heaven
