~~~ After Eight ~~~
~ After Eight ~
From a love reaction,
Lends warmth to your acquiescent gaze;
Crackling like static;
Ever-ready to spark the expectant silence
With a hint of dramatic.
A descendent hush gives way to an inferno
Of suppressed longings,
Which dare not breathe their name,
Until you have been exalted
To the lofty heights of a mysterious,
We spontaneously combust from our fiery ardour,
And the room is set ablaze with Eastern promise.
Your knowing look makes one lose control;
That sensuous,serpentine body shimmies,
Like an uncoiled whip;
Mesmerizing hips,that offer no parole.
Prescription of wild abandon
Permeates the resplendent night;
A shaft of lunar silver,
The only witness to betray our hidden desires,
Which are best left unsaid.
'Till the twilight of morn;
You and I,
Will remember this dawn.
