What began as a friendly game of Texas Hold Em on a rainy afternoon.
Soon morphed into a game of strip poker just as soon as the box of wooden matches we were using to place bets was emptied.
Only to come to an end when she took me by the hand.
Led me into the private sanctuary of her boudoir; where entwined together underneath the sheets.
Our shared passions burned all the hotter – brighter.
As the lightning flashed across the sky from one horizon to the other.
And thunder roared overhead like civil war cannons upon a blood soaked battlefield.
Together we soared above the storm with our bodies entwined as one.
Fell asleep within each other’s arms mesmerized by the gentle sound of the raindrops; pitter patting upon the roof just above our heads.
