The Private Dance

Her eyes undressed him subtlety
allowing the sparkles to pledge
promises of pleasure beyond his dreams
she left a kiss on the rim of her glass
as they drank to each other’s wishes
from across the room

The thirst from his throat arise
his mouth going dry
his nape went damp and he coughed
to partake of that one so divine
a conquest beyond dreams
he met her eyes, in a pact

all at once they were together
in soundless agreement they embraced
they discarded their warm sheaths
and in their totality showed their wants
in the touching of their skins
in the caress of their hands

the gazebo bore witness to the tryst
the breathless giving and taking
the two souls rocked into ecstasy
feeding their hunger for that while
trapped in loveless-ness  they roared
outside their cage for a while

that one should die the little death
love for a while before coldness set in
to touch beyond the indifference
the aches to be treated by a balm
or poultice even though borrowed
meaningful briefly and fleetingly

the dance floor was full again
she would go home with hers
and he would go home with his
they danced, eyes on each other
lips still burning with remembrance
of a love briefly but intensely shared.
