A piano evening...........

As I ambled through the
all but silent house
of solitude
Sounds of music playing
as softly
as this glow from a distant room
I pondered of what it truely is to be
the way that I am
and why

I 've no need to feel ashamed though
nor will I
for what I'm about
to do
Making little if any noise
I make my way further
drawn by the music
and then I'm
there in this

My eye's adjust to the candle
light and see her
Or at least I see her sitting with her
back to me
Just as I had planned
And the sounds
of music are at once
and soul lifting
Oh but if only I
had one
a soul

Her back is perfectly smooth
her pale flesh and the inner woman
move with the notes
as she plays
She cannot know I'm here
she's too relaxed
her head tilts slightly and turns
to a soft finishing note of

Before me
I see my hands reach out and
stop short of her
necks soft curve and flow without touching
down her spine
As she begins a soft yet lonely
I lower my mouth to her ear and
kiss the air ever so softly
near her lobe

Watching at once I can invision my legs lift
over and around her on
the bench
My chest push against her bare back
my hands down along her arms
to lay finally on top
of her fingers
as she lays her
head back against
my shoulder turns
halfway and
as the corner of her lips
turn slight into
a smile
This perfect smile

Just then in the final soft notes of
another music filled evening
She rises
turns to me
locking our eyes
one hand
pulling her dress higher
on her left thigh
she straddles me and
in tender movements
Her breath in my ear
we come together
This woman of this evening
and I
the ghost of

Sorry, the romantic in me , where ever it comes from , couldn't help this one from being written . Its like nothing is within my control anymore . Inside the rough and weathered surface of a carpenter lies another being I think ! In reality..... I'm such a guy , blue jeans and flannel shirts , work boots and calloused hands , baseball cap and sneaky smile ! Don't know where this stuff originates! Bare with me .......together we'll figure me out though , I'm sure.!

I am captivated by your diversity, your spirit was let loose and it transformed into a work of art. I drifted with this one and swooned thinking of past lives we lived and what it felt like to be there in the presence of beauty. We may both be burly men and comfortable in our boots and blue jeans, but heck when we scribe our Muse has their way with us and we don't know what to expect from our quill once placed between our fingers sir. Bravo, I loved this brilliant piece. I could hear the piano playing softly and see the embrace you both felt for each other. Voted up and shared.

I'll try once again to leave a comment on one of your lovely recent hubs. Before this one, which is the 4th or 5th which hasn't posted, though I tried those each a second time. (I kept copies) When I'm here, it appears they're posting, but once I leave, there's no record I was ever here on my activity list, and no comments shows on your comment threads.

This poem is magnificent, Ed. Didn't I tell you that the romantic is "in there"? :-)

Seems there's no provision for leaving an e-mail with the new profile format, or I'd write you one and let you know I'm visiting your hubs.

Oh but you did it so well. Brought back those romantic memories of the old Hollywood movies when romance was tops. And ghostly waltzes held sway....
