Dancing in the Dark

Written by: Debbie Guzzi

A shawl of gilt black fringes, splayed;
Upon her soft, white, skin;
Beneath burnished swirls of open lace;
Breasts crested capped within.

Her hair was full of candlelight,
Flames danced in her eyes.
And as her gartered thighs did part,
She heard her lover sigh.

T'ween clefts as white as moon rise,
And curls as black as night.
A lance was raised, parting,
Twin orbs of delight.

Limbs akimbo, heart and tide,
Teeth and talon marked,
On they rode without fright
Dancing in the dark.
