I saw her walking down the darkened gallery, Beneath unlit Venetian chandeliers, I glimpsed her acquiescent smile That never left her lips, A smile that animated pleasure And instilled a prick of wonder, And an expanse of love. With some embarrassing misdemeanor, I tiptoed forth and fell in step with her, I, bold and daring; She, a feigned timidity in her mien. Her flared skirt rustled softly against my leg, And in the silence I felt Her hand brushing against mine, Her long fingers curled delicately And intertwined with mine. A moment of time, split second of ecstasy, Our eyes met in a finite profound gaze, And her lips quivered. And then..... All was as before. Smoothly we drew apart, Steps never faltering, As she hurried away Into a maze of corridors, To meet her love.

Oh, I didn't expect the twist at the end, Victor. It does seem like she purposely lured you, only to walk away. Excellent writing! Hugs, Carolyn

Ahhh!! Romantic but I would not want to be her love because she apparently was not true. Thanks for dropping by my page. Sara
