execration (darkness as a lover V)

she made eye contact
from across the room
her lips
pursed
a calculating look
in her bottomless
brown eyes

it was accidental
that he caught
that gaze
one in which
he flushed
bright scarlet
she stared even harder

he never heard
the word
execration
until much later
but when he did
he knew
the feel of her flesh

it was a curse
under the solemn
evening sky
to feast
upon her perfection
with starving eyes
of longing

in the dark
he saw clearly
that no other
could satiate this intense
need
except for her
alone
