Prelude To Love

We've been slow dancing
    romancing in subtle prelude
Wooed by cravings in our eyes
    hypnotized in amorous flirt
 Assertive glances sparked by embers
    remembrances of a burning fire
desired remnants of heated passion
    Fashioned whispers, calling our names
claiming our hearts to beat as one
    none has requited or sated
Abated our harvests of love yet to reap
   Deep and lonely have been our nights
Blighted from cold and empty arms
   Palm to palm we feast on each other
smothered by longing; a sense of belonging
