To Josephine De Beauharnais With Love
Author: Joseph Ogbonna


My heart cannot
anymore my emotions
Permit me to be pragmatic
in affections which
in its very bottom I
have buried:
Let me hold you in
my cozy hands and
kiss you. Let me your
succulent apples feel,
as I explore the smooth,
soft and sweet fragrant
landscape of your body.
The sensual touch of your
lower curves would
undoubtedly to the
highest heavens convey me.
Let me hold you tight
so that no one else
may grab you.
Let me in your love's
citadel seek eternal
refuge from the vast
armies of Europe.

------- Author's Notes -------

A love letter to the empress Josephine de Beauharnais from Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821).
