Another week, another three poems.

soul song

Piano notes
deep and heavy
closing the eyes

tapping the foot
a long silence
then a voice joins in

Sweet sedative…seductive
calling to the blood
making the heart
strain to feel


The Dance

The bow across the strings
The pluck of a gentle cord
The lights dim
And the sound swells

Two bodies moving
in perfect harmony
Eyes to eyes
One heartbeat

Do you understand?Understand how I feel?Understand what you do?Understand my reality? Am I a game?or an ego boost?Am I just a tool,to relieve? Does my pain,mean more than discomfort?Is my love,more than a laugh?
