O.S.I.: Empty

Hello all,

This week's O.S.I. theme is empty.

Alas, the hour is spent
Dipped in red roses and wine
Evening rustles her purple veil
Rising in the starlit sky
When love surrenders
Tumbling in fragrant sheets
Intertwined in a thirsty embrace
Till the cup is empty

A pleasant take on the idea of emptiness. Lovely wording.

Beautifully crafted word pictures, I like this take on empty... a little bittersweet - the cup is empty, but the sweet memory remains.

I feel the emptiness when he leaves...Because when he is there I never want that feeling to go away...

My favorite part:

Tumbling in fragrant sheets
Intertwined in a thirsty embrace
Till the cup is empty
