Artist's Description

Poetry By Ilya and Melanie Shambat

To indulge in you, my golden fantasy,
A present from USA, wrapped in a Russian paper
Immersing myself into you, sheer ecstasy
Shall we venture into bliss or caper?

Longing to dance with you
I could not help but long
Addicted to you too
A drug that I am fond

My scorpion king, shall I shower you with cool water?
My scorpion king, will the future continue to mystify our fate?
My scorpion king, will you take me as your queen too?
My scorpion king, will your tail ever sting me with poisonous hate?

The only journey, that is sure of me and you
Is on Saturday morning at 8:35 am
For one week under the stars and sky blue
holding, caressing, my treasure a precious gem

I will look forward to seeing you then
Let your days be filled with inextinguishable light
I do not want any other men
Let us join our dreams and vow to never fight

I love you more than I ever imagined
That love could be; and in every way
I will control the hate, fight the dangers,
And keep us living in light of day.

I love you more than I ever expected
Life could exist; and in every now
I seek to fathom and to protect you
From all the wrong in the world we know.

I love you more than I ever could think of;
And if I be the Scorpio King,
Then let me turn into an eagle
And let you fly upon my wings.
