Love Version 1

thought the two guys left for good
leaving behind drinks unfinished

sat on the high chair of the big guy
am glad I did says I to this day

how did we end up shouting
into each others ears huddling

was the music that deafening
or did it bring out the yearning

who initiated the bonding
which moment was defining

inebriated we both were in a club that didn't care
when I appeared wearing mytraditional attire

celebrating the true finding with family and friends
day was gone leaving me with myself helpless

contacted company to liven up the drab night
wined dined paid maintainedhigh spirit

talking, dancing, giggling wasn't enough after midnight
wanted some spark to back the stark facing me upfront

we ventured out boarded the musical flight
some unknown force drove me to my knight

set wandering heart and feet at panda for the first time
he's a regular with designated chair to his name

I remember being extensively coached
ups and downs of the adventurous child

of three cultures from this very continent
who blended with allto his heart's content

I was drawn letting go off all my defense
couldn't resist charming man of the universe

closing time at two o'clock didn't make sense
we talked, laughed all the way to his house

Night Nurse was the song which lingered
as we neared the place the role was reversed

authoritative but accommodative doctor took over
leading me quietly to family and relatives up stair

sobriety surfaced handing me to restlessness
the laughter, the intoxicating noise, has come to this

my request was graciously granted
took a shower turmoil quietened

settled on his bed postponing the sync
we talked some more listening to music

it was mesmerizing
watching him patiently waiting

as if in cue we stopped talking
progressed in to deep kissing

took time slowly experimenting
feeling the degree of desire mounting

he knew how to transport me with ease
to the next best level with such expertise

what exactly opened my heart
I was so hooked before the act

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Set out with acquaintance for dinner. It progressed into midnight walk. I remembered I wanted to see my favorite singer, Eyob Mekonnen at some club. Instead of going to where the singer was at, I ended up entering into another which changed my love life. This happened seven years ago. I still pine for the guy.
