    My sleepless nights are because of you,
    anxiety comes in all varieties, But I’m tied up in knots
    at the thought of spending time with you.
    Months and months have gone by when I wanted to approach you.
    But when I got my chance ….I didn’t know what to do, or say to you.
    My dreams of you, are pleasant even though I’m tossin and turnin,
    Sweatin beads down my back, like the bed is burnin,
    And I’m concerned that this is not normal behavior.
    Treatin you like you my savior, or my destiny or my eternal partner full of bliss,
    Like I’m gone turn into prince charming with just one kiss.
    Hit or miss, I’m steppin up to the plate two outs, 9th inning with the runners in scorin position
    Time to make the right decision.
    Dinner and a Movie?
    Seems like the right vibe for me. Can you feel what I’m saying? Just dinner and a movie.
    No overnight staying, Dinner and a movie, maybe some domino playin, or some card playin,
    It don’t matter to me for you see I see you and me and our future after……. the dinner and the movie.
    But for the moment, my mind lingers on the present, and the couple of hours spent.
    Barely eating cause I’m too preoccupied by your eyes, by your perfectly shaped figure that calls me
    and I can’t help but listen, the gloss on your lips glisten, I won’t tell you what I’m wishin for, but it is more than I imagined of even hoped for I remember my knees shakin when you came to the door, and now I’m amazed and stuck in a daze as the dimly lit lights bounce off your silky brown skin,
    fascinated by your giggle,
    when a piece of food drools on your chin.
    Wishin I was the napkin that wiped your chin.
    When you say “ I need to got to the powder room to freshen up", I run over to help you with your chair
    tryin hard not to stare at you in that long black dress with that seductive split on the side.
    Touching my soul, and teasin me as I ride the wave of lustful desire, is it me or is this place on fire?
    Getting high, staring at the small exposed portion of your succulent thigh…..
    I take a drink to change my thought, lustful fantasies I have fought, IF patience is a virtue than that class I had to flunk, just watchin you walk by, got me harder than a Shaquile Oneal dunk, I can’t take it there, all I can do is stare, Your effect on me is truly rare and to mess it up with a lustful stare…..I wouldn’t dare For you see it is you and me, here for a dinner and a movie.
    You can order everything on the menu, hell it wouldn’t even hurt
    If you ordered desert, Me? I don’t need to eat a thing, your presence is more than enough to satisfy my appetite,
    I hope the movie, is long, so our date can go on and on. I wonder is it wrong, to hope that this date won’t end to fast…..Is it wrong that I want it to last….this dinner and movie for you and me…..Could it be the start of something real? Will I get the chance to feel your spirit depending on how close I get, or how close you let me…… I hope this was a good beginning, and not a graceful ending. I have been fighting the devil all night, pushin back the question he wants me to ask….cause I know it would be too fast..to ask, Baby after the dinner and the movie…do you think we can have some breakfast?

    I can feel this!

    Dinner and a movie, seems so innocent, but what does it really represent? Future encounters, of two holding hands, or a prerequisite for a one night stand? Things to make you say hmmmmmmmm!

    Nice very very very nice
    Peace!
