You don’t know how the heart beats
When the musky fragrance of a lover precedes his entrance.
Between the empty distances from you,
I am trapped in thoughts of wrapping you with love,
Like the night wraps the evening sky
With ethereal blankets unfolding,
Cautiously advancing, treading softly,
Twilight on a mission to entice the moon with his dark presence,
Coaxing her to illuminate his existence.
Shine down your love on me,
Let the dew of your breath preserve my essence.
Let me find life in your eyes
Let your light sustain my fire.
For tonight we shall dance.
Tender the Night
Tonight, the night prepares a love nest
Where I will inhale the maleness in your breath
And exhale with exhilaration amidst torrents of emotion:
The way your eyes look into mine,
The speech of lips in quick succession;
Every kiss a tribe diverse in its culture,
Diverse in its understanding of the elements at work,
Unraveling the mystery of souls
Joined in nocturnal symphony,
The union of souls – yours and mine –
To the music of the night,
Its ambience like satin in bridal procession.
