I Need You To Live, love poems
I bow down low,
I take your hand,
and I invite you to dance.
I hold you close;
I place my palm,
upon the small of your back.
The lights aglow,
the music slow
my mind is held in a trance,
I trace my steps
my body bound
the ballroom spins me around.
I see your eyes,
I feel your breath,
and my inward motion is calm.
You lean inside
hands on my chest,
your soft arms coming to rest.
I press your waist,
I hear you sigh
your knees bend in and rise.
I ease my pace;
I touch your face
and bring you down to my lips.
We feel all alone
our still bodies prone,
we brush lightly to kiss.
Your strapless black dress,
your formal white gloves
I need you to live.
The beat just replays
when hearts are ablaze,
I crave your caress.
What would I give,
I need you to live
I give you my love.
