How it feels to dance with the woman I love.

At some random point on a train journey home, I felt inspired to think back to those particularly passionate moments, and try to describe the experience from beginning to end.

 

The Rhythm And You

To dance with you;

Is to resent distance and all its friends, to want the first step towards you to be the universe’s end.

Is the contact of eyes between a want and need, the smile resting on you is the touch between forever and proceed.

Is the out stretched ache of a mother’s young, fingertips close to feeling the one you love.

Is the warmth that envelops upon embrace, even melody is left astray-floating just beyond the periphery of our space.

We invite it back in – traversing the sway of your hips, to finesse me from naval to lip.

 

To dance with you;

Is to glide together into other dimensions, lead by guitar and string. To trace the meandering curve of sexual purpose – the waist upon which my hands do cling.

Is to take in the wetness – of skin on your chest or corners of hair.

Is the effort held in our grind, becoming condensation mapping paths on passion’s window.

Is the bridge of fatigue that reigns briefly, the last verse is heir.

Is the silence and stare – a slow mind arriving with just the love of you in tow.

Looks like the goodreads giveaway was a good idea!

Today to my surprise when loging into my goodreads account, i saw that 72 new people have added my book to their ‘to read’ shelve! If I wasn’t sitting down at the time i would have tripped over my jaw. I thought that readers would just enter the giveaway, but it seems that they have been inticed enough to go out and buy it! If they don’t win it in the giveaway of course…and after they finish reading all the other books on their ‘to read’ shelves lol. Even so i think this is a win win situation – so i will rejoice Sister Act Whoopi Goldberg style! 🎶 Ohhhh Mariiiiiaaaaa 🎶
