My eyes look across the floor to see you there,
lips of black velvet and alabaster skin.
Your sparkling green eyes a window to your soul,
what chance have I with a beauty like you.
Dancing time and again with those less perfect,
wishing my fear would let me invite you to the floor.
Then a touch on my arm and a turn of my head,
you stand there, an invite in your smile.
The thoughts I had flee in a blur,
my heart’s beat skips and settles not.
You take my hand and lead me to the center,
then come in close as we start to move together.
Time has stopped, the world exists no more,
there’s but you and me alone on the floor.
We dance through the eve, not thinking ahead,
till the gathering is over and under the stars we go.
A tilt of your head as you take my arm,
a smile from me as we walk through the night.
A whisper in my ear takes my breath away,
the look in my eyes brings a smile to yours.
Exploring each other soft and gentle,
lips and fingers tease and tempt.
Till at last we join and our souls touch,
while we fly together through the night.
Lying together after sharing each other,
wanting to say words that I not dare.
Then my soul flies as you gaze at me,
and five words flow from your dark lips.
“I want to stay here.”
