                hand side border


The darkness envelops
Wrapping our bodies
In a warm embrace

Together we move

A dance we live
A song we share
A love never
To be rivalled

A soft light
Shines upon your face
Illuminating the curves of your body
My hand follows this dancing flame
Idly tracing patterns
Upon your flesh

Then
The tables are turned
No longer content to simply lay still
Your fingers trace
Complex lines of fire
Building up an urgent need
Desire
Flooding my being
Love
Overflowing my soul

Together we move
A life-affirming dance

Together we soar
Our names a joyous song
Ringing in our ears

Hands once again moving
Slowly
Gently
Lovingly
Once again showing
What mere words could never tell
