in sheets of ebony
in golden satiny folds
be light, no longer uptight
go with the flow
take her hand in yours
wish for future happiness
Say you’re under her spell
be daring, speak it loud
stand up, be proud. Come to the dance?
With me? With me?
Tremble no more, her love implore, over
a candlelight dinner for two
fiercely independent woman
stop for a while
imagine a magical night
of touching, whispers and sighs
that beg for your lips, your hands
your heat and your tongue, flaming
harder now. More, please, she says
and you give it to her
the way she wants. Next morning
picture this scene: instead of packing
black briefcase, the laptop, that irksome
mobile phone, she’s soft in her nakedness
almost stunned by that wild night of bliss
yearning, no, pleading,
Please, once more.
