    She Danced

    Out from the mystic shadow, she stepped into the night
    clothed in something shimmering that flowed with glistened light.
    It stopped my breath and skipped my heart to lock my brain in place
    as she walked across the dancing floor with poise of regal grace.

    The houselight dimmed. Voices muted. The audience held its breath
    which seemed as one eternal gasp prolonged, pulled and stretched.
    I heard the finger cymbals clash and break the air with sound.
    The music played. She moved a foot. A tremor pulsed the ground.

    The rhythm grabbed me, fold and wrapped me with its sultry beat,
    igniting blood to reckless boil while riveted to my seat.
    I tried to move. I tried to blink. My eyes were locked to stay
    ‘cause on her belly button, there a jewel did rhythmic sway.

    Hynotic twinkling glints of light did mesmerize my core.
    Her toes, bejeweled with gems of flash, danced upon the floor
    and when she twirled and came to stop our eyes electric met.
    The jewel dislodged. It leaped from her and landed on my chest.

    Stunned, I was! My legs rose up. She watched from where she stood
    as the jewel began to float my feet across the floor of wood.
    She grabbed my waist. She touched my hand and I was hers at last.
    I didn’t hear the audience clap. I only heard my gasp.

    Magic, witchcraft, tricks of sorcery! Who cares what was in play!
    She made me beam. I fell in love and married her anyway.
    And on the nights we kiss the light which pulls us both entranced,
    we glance the jewel. We laugh and sing and dance! dance! dance!

    Cocobutterskyn - No scribbler of words is more elevated than when his created work makes a kindred poet smile with dancing images in her head. I'm doubly honored it was felt soul deep. Namyh
