Desire

The last ray of sun on a long grey day,
so desire sets the world alight again
Your voice, your name, my heart aflame
walking how our hands seek and find
two birds sharing a wing
I feel the pulse of you
and as we turn
eyes meet
knowing without words
winter lips warmed again
your tongue tells mine
how long its been
And like an echo my heart replies
a beat like bubbles in cava
rising notes of anticipation
a dance we’ve done before
yet new again
each step remembered
skin…
