Gustav Klimt – Apple Tree I

Although many nights have separated us, through time and space, I feel you tonight

And although it is he whose arms hold me now, it is you who surrounds me

As in so many nights spent skin to skin, heart to heart

Legs tangled, sweat dripping from your hard body

Falling asleep to the rhythm of two hearts beating as one

And I whisper that I love you

Realizing how deeply your soul is embedded in mine

The Kama Sutra of Kindness: Position No. 2

Gustav Klimt – Danae

…It is not love I am asking
Love comes from years of breathing skin to skin
Tangled in each others dreams
Until each night weaves another thread
In the same web of blood and sleep
And I have only passed through you quickly
Like light
And you have only surrounded me suddenly
Like flame…
