and sweet lavender silk.

Slipping into dainty slippers.

that way again.

The rush

of ancient winds


against our skin.

I want to feel your breath

slip past.

just to hear your voice.

just to see your eyes,

black sapphires,

burn with promise.

Back to before,

when you were mine,

and I was yours.

And we shall dance.
