Fling

 

Semper fidelis, for short, always faithful -- 

she, reflected in my eyes, in hers,

 

mine. Libido by waterfall, affection

repeated -- ad infinitum, whisper, kiss,

 

embrace, bis repetita placent, 

de integro, actum agere,  ad nauseam,

 

pleasantly so for a time,

decies repetita placebit, ebb, retreat,

 

terga dare, dimitto, discedo, spiral

down into spray, amantes sunt amentes, 

 

love, not bottomless, non compis mentis,

morituri te salutamus, on the rocks.
