A golden oldie, bodice ripper in the old fashioned style.

Lay spur against your horse’s side
    my lover and my master.
    The sands of time are running through
    the pace is ever faster.
    To lose this chance in life’s cruel game
    would be my true undoing.
    For who would cheer my empty heart
    without your ardent wooing?

    Make haste, make haste! urge on your steed
    towards that distant mountain,
    I’m waiting there, wind in my hair
    beside our secret fountain.
    Where oft we met, but better yet
    lay down, with hearts a-beating,
    to savour true our souls' delight
    as body's urgent greeting.

"I'll never fear the dark of hell
I’ll wait till death should take me
I know my lover comes to me
If sleeping…do not wake me!"

I wish more women in current Western society were like you, rather than the spouters of boring self-righteous hypocritical Feminazi shit I have to deal with every time I go on Arsebook.

Whatever happened to passion, to desire?...
