GENTLY.....TONIGHT

Lights turned down, just a bit,
Flame from taper to candle, now lit,
Soft music playing, slow, loving hugs,
Hot cocoa on table, in two large mugs,
So comfy on sofa, side by side,
Closer now, no feelings to hide.
Snuggling up nicely,
Pulling off shoes, feet up, feeling cosy,
Head resting on chest, heartbeat felt,
Heady perfume smelt,
Soft breaths, gentle sighs,
Flowing colours seen through closed eyes,
As fingers with flowing hair gently played,
A hand on thigh is tenderly laid.
Soft shadows flicker as the candle glows,
Minutes fly, though real time slows,
Two souls lost in another world,
Intertwined, together curled,
Two minds, now one, as artificial twilight fools,
Rising wisps of steam slowly cease,
..........As untouched cocoa cools.
