Dancing With Suicide

You – Suicide himself –
Wrap silky hands around
My innocent hips of peach marble –
Seducing me with a million charms –
And flashy silver keys to your shiny night topless car.

Begin we to sway to music
Slow while man-made moons
Around us ring. Stand they out
As romantic lights among the
Secret Night Room.

Your loyal heart I feel on
My silky nightgown of grape purple –
And your black jacket
And pure pale collared
Shirt underneath.

My sweet perfume permeates
Us – and our senses – filling
Them with Silent Flowers.
No rules are there tonight –
Just you and me – Eccentric.

Dance we by my silky bed –
Its pink – white – and gold –
Neatly folded into Softness.
My empty desk and chair
Observe for hyper fun.

We pass by my only window –
Draped in sheer white curtains
Which hang over my barren
Wooden floor – our dance floor –
Of smooth gliding and swaying.

Freedom's moon lights our way –
Spreading her shimmering beams of smiles
All over us and Secrecy is our friend.
She smiles at us – and her eyes twinkle –
While she strokes her silky blonde hair – resembling mine.

We'll tell no one – no one at all –
Of our secret affair.
You run peachy fingers through your short
Seductive blonde hair.
You – Suicide himself – smile and spin once more.

'Commit me and live' – you breathe to me –
A soft warm blanket grows within your place inside
My funneled mind.

    Your words flowed and swayed like a dance, and it pulled me in as though I were the one wearing the nightgown of grape purple. Very good!
