Please say you remember

I watch you,
from the corner of this small room.
It’s like a cardboard box and I;
just a single packing peanut
wedged in the small cracks.
You dance,
it tantalizes me and I can’t help but stare;
sweat glistens diamonds on your skin
as your hips sway effortlessly.
Your eyes are closed;
lost in bass emotions.
It is now peace weaving a blanket
that will help me hug you to sleep tonight.
I reach out,
locking fingers as I stand
and pull you closer
while matching the rhythm
like trees in summer wind.
Soft skin of your neck
calls forth my eager lips
as the sensuous and gentle
messages written in your pores are gathered by my eyes
and retold by the movement of my tongue.
I only see you;
the side to side jerk
of your hips and stomach,
and all I can think about
is sweeping you off your feet
to a place where the music
is a little less deafening
and only heard
by us,
and the slow flicker
of candles
by your bedside.
