First Night

Written by: Tahera Mannan

In silence the town sleeps
We snuggle close for just a while
On soft padded feet the night creeps
I see the lust in your smile
And try to hold you back awhile

You crush the roses on my chest
To feel my racing heart beat
As the rhythm reaches a crest
The room is filled with searing heat
Oh the teardrop tastes so sweet

As sunlight enters the bridal room
Sleepily I purr on the rug
Loving the floral, musky perfume
You kiss my lips with a face so smug
And lightly push me towards the coffee mug
