Oh, what the dark doth bring to light

I felt her body close to mine, the place

Was dark, there was no light, a heat

That bore magnetic pull, ‘Would I like

To dance’? 'You bet I would’. God, let

The mystery last I thought, too soon

The truth, too soon the walk, too soon

The quenching of the fire, too soon

The dawn, too soon the lie.


Oh, what the dark doth bring to light,

Where hands are eyes and touch is

Sight, a fabric spun so very thin, where

E're I touched, I touched her skin. If she

Were dressed, then dressed in what,

In gossamer or gold leaf swatch? In

Cloth no more than starlit sheen, less

Weight, less substance, than a dream.


Two seconds from a pulse collapse,

My wrists are wet, my heartbeat fast,

A cardiac arrest comes next, my heart

Has stopped, no pulse, I checked. The

Room was full, the music loud, she

Said 'I need your love right now', so

Little space, but just enough, what

We did, we did, standing up.
