Attic Dance

large

I hear them often, though I hesitate to tell

Darkness comes and the rhythms begin

Faintly filling the air with a joyful noise

Floorboards creak and shift in pattern

From front to back and side to side

A woman’s giggle, or his hearty laugh

Find their way to my ears at night

 

I close my eyes and I smile wide

I picture what I have seen only once

A vision so darkly, and vividly romantic

What others so blindly fail to see

 

Was a night like this I was beckoned

By the sounds of bliss from above

I braved the steps to the room upstairs

To find a reason for this noise to be

 

Door cracked open and in plain view

A Mr. and Mrs. dressed to the nines

Gliding and swaying along the floor

While music from a long ago time

Crackled from the antique Victrola

 

Why I have been so privileged

To behold a spirit of enchantment

So chilling, yet heartwarming

I hope to someday understand

But for now, I just settle in

Listen for the music to start

And contentedly find slumber

With a peaceful, knowing smile

 

 

 

Fate’s Rhapsody (The Eternal Waltz)

I would like to introduce my friend and newest DUET partner Desiree from “Sea of Desire”. I was an instant fan of her work there and knew right away that our chemistry would lend itself to the creation of  a magical dance with words. Please drop in and see what else her site has in store for you. She is such a creative and diverse talent that I am sure you will find much to your liking and be as impressed as I am with her overflowing talent. You can find her at www.seaofdesire.wordpress.com

It seems so cliche as our eyes met across the crowded room

 

There was nothing ordinary about my thoughts you did consume.

 

Drawing us together, our connection could not be denied

 

At the center of the dance floor our bodies did collide.

 

A sudden tempting turn and most tantalizing twist of fate

 

Would see you to my waiting arms and quickened pulse create

 

Instantaneous imagery of perfection and wanton lust for life

 

Impervious to my fiery gaze, beauty cuts like sharpened knife

 

Hand in trembling hand, heaving bosom to broad chest

 

Our bodies attuned one to the other in our salacious quest

 

Within the confines of your arms, inhibitions soon fell away

 

I hid my rapturous orbs from view as my secrets they betray

 

Countless vibrant sensations came to life within your touch

 

As if I now contained the mysteries of life inside my clutch

 

A perfect stranger that it seems I have known for many years

 

My only hope is that this ethereal beauty is exactly as appears

 

The music was orchestrated by the melancholy of our hearts’ strings

 

As they intertwined to give us hope for what the future brings

 

In harmony, moving as one, our congruent spirits soon did soar

 

Gliding through shadows, searching for desire’s celestial shores

 

New land conquered through the beat of  two hearts as one

 

The pulse sets the rhythm for our new adventures just begun

 

Overwhelmed by bliss eternal emanating from your charms

 

No words describe the elation that we found in each others arms
