undercurrents of desire

undercurrents of desire
flowing through and ever higher
hidden from the passing stranger
signs of some illicit danger
known, unknown or otherwise:
underneath the calm disguise

past the reef of pain and sadness
lies the deep erotic madness
hidden and entrenched in shadow;
shooting forth as from a crossbow
hitting heart and soul, the same:
past complicity, or blame

undercurrents of desire
more than ever we require
things connecting us in real ways
shaking us from sleep and malaise
felt, unfelt, or otherwise:
undercurrents of
surprise
