Shadows danced, that moonlit night,
when confessions burst from your lips;
and left mine tingling from their touch.
My hands locked into your gold-spun hair,
lost as the world spun, suspended outside time.
An eternity spent with your lips fused to mine.
We felt, more than watched
as technicolour seeped into a world
that had always been shades of grey
Your throbbing heart reverberated
through my bone, blood and sinew
in a thumping bass only I could hear.
You called. I answered.
It took less than a second to captivate me –
Heartbeat to sacred heartbeat.
Life was filtered through this kiss,
brighter and bolder than before,
