One hand holding hers,
the other resting in the small of her back,
he leads;
she follows.
The music sways,
brushing against her arms;
first soft yellow tendrils,
then building up
to a deep blue
that laps over her skin
like waves.
His hand touches the white satin
at her waist,
and he whispers her sweet pink name,
and tells her she’s beautiful –
even more beautiful
than the colours of her favourite song.

Such a creative and beautiful poem. Hmmm, synesthesia, I've never heard of it before.
