The slowest dance – by Estrella Azul

He asks me to dance,
grasps my shy hand in his,
leads me to the dance floor.

Firmly holds me close,
although we’ve just met,
swaying to the slow-beat song.

I gaze into his eyes,
step closer, ever so slowly,
draping my hands on his shoulders.

He caresses my hair,
envelopes me in gentle kisses,
as the distance left between us fades.

Movement is minimal,
desire fills us both,
all the walls crumble.

My heart is wide open,
throughout the slowest dance,
the music ends.

His embrace never dissolves, 
as we keep the rhythm until dawn,
even without audible melody.
