the thump thump thump

of my rapidly beating heart

I can think of nothing

but your body's girations

and the way your muscles

become clear and present

and command my gaze.

And just before I

melt into the darkness,

with breath rapid,

I become anticipation

And you are fire

and we dance


and naked

for the world to see

Any chance of seeing this developed into a song? Very nice.
