It was quite some time ago that we first met; I think it was around mid May.
It was evening, definitely, that I am certain.
I first saw him in the centre of the field,
the one bordered with thick leaved trees that cause a dark linear shadow,
framing the beast.
I knew at once he was what I wanted,
I knew instantly he’d be perfect.
Black and tall,
slender and sheen,
a medalled animal he glared at me.
He made me feel small, inferior,
but that just increased the feeling of desire.
Strong and muscular,
all anyone wants,
focused and admirable, a voice with fight.
