Title: As Life Begins
Disclaimer: Not mine, Tolkien's.
AS LIFE BEGINS
Softly scented skin.
Passion reflected in loving touch, building and swelling upon itself...
edging closer to the cresting wave of pleasure.
A cruel jest, Frodo mused, to begin life so gloriously
then let it end with death.
Death should come first. Yes.
Then years of decline and infirmity,
renewing and building toward the frenzied pulse of mid-life.
As reward for a life well lived, the gift of youth and childhood.
Then, the soft sanctuary of the womb,
as the soul catches the cresting wave of pleasure
and rides it to eternity.
As life begins... so should it end.
