Twilight

The graceful dance at twilight
In the cusp between light and dark
If you look closely, you’ll see a spark
Two flames igniting, burning bright

Watch closely as the forms sway
Dancing beneath the night sky
Leaving the ground, rising high
Up to where the stars array

Streaking like a comet
On a journey, they set sail
Weaving a wondrous trail
Ignorant of the long plummet

The graceful dance at twilight
Two flames igniting, burning bright

Dance With Me

Dance with me, beneath the moonlight
feel the darkness, embracing us
tugging at hidden desires.

Dance with me, beneath the moonlight
let the moonbeams caress you
softly, with its light fingered touch.

Dance with me, beneath the moonlight
body against body, flesh against flesh
while I taste the passion, there, on your lips.

Dance with me, beneath the moonlight
and, surrender to the darkness within.

Dancing in the Dark

Come, take my hand, dance in the dark
holding me close beneath the moon
swaying to the call of the lark.

Come, take my hand, dance in the dark
and on this journey we’ll embark
hoping it doesn’t end too soon.

Come, take my hand, dance in the dark
and hold me close beneath the moon.
