Dance within the darkness ..........poem

That dance that may only happen but
within this nightly dream
yet leaves you "given in" to all her forms of beauty
or so to seem

She wears nothing at all if not the softest
dress and I but a worn work coat
I don't even remember any of the music
or the words we spoke

Yet your eye's hold my soul up for
all to see as you swirl
and even without the wine without the
music to make to twirl

There is an awesome beauty in but once
the touch of such an angel
my hand on your perfect hip my lips against
your necks perfect angle

Yet even now the soft cooing of your voice
awakens me from the depth of slumber
as I seek out your memory and memorize
my uncalled number

I want you to know I waited there at the edge
of the waltzing music so that I might once recall
and never to dance again they all ask
as if I never learned at all
