The Terrifying Seduction

As I listened to her slender fingers
Making exquisite love
To the ivories
To Rachmaninoff
To the Universe
To my soul
To the thousand miles between us
And to every atom in my Being

I realized that we must
Never actually meet, for I’d
Give myself instantly to her
Disappear within her
Consumed by her brilliance
Incinerated by her beauty

And I was terrified
