Valentine's Day

Like a gift from the heavens, it was easy to tell

It was love from above that could save me from hell
She had fire in her soul it was easy to see
How the devil himself could be pulled out of me

There were drums in the air as she started to dance
Every soul in the room keeping time with their hands
And we sang...

She pulled him closer. 

"You are mad, it's late, we should get going," he said.

She laughed. Her smile, the ever beautiful smile that made him wonder with amazement.

"It's Valentine's Day, silly. Let's dance." She spoke with a childlike feverish excitement. The twinkle in her eyes was contagious.

He was pulled out of his amazement when she pulled his hand towards the middle of the road. He resisted. "I know you are crazy but seriously, now? In the middle of the road? At this time of night?"

"YES....Now means NOW!" She pulled him to the middle of the road. 

"But..But I don't know how to dance..." He protested meekly.

"I will teach you", she winked. Again that naughty smile, the kind that made his heart stop.

It was late in the evening. The road was deserted. It was dark. The dimness of the streetlights, the soft breeze, the rustling leaves steered his passion. She looked at him, her eyes laughing. And suddenly, there was music, as if by magic...

She took his hand and put it on her waist. Their other hands joined in unison. Her eyes sparked fire. His were full of longing. They looked at each other, as they had never before. She turned. Her hair lightly brushed over his face. Their fragrance made his passion more intense. With a firm grasp, he pulled her back. She smiled, that same innocent smile. His eyes were fierce now. With a hand behind her waist, he let her go. She fell back lightly, rose again and looked into his eyes. They radiated heat. Her smile vanished. She stared at those deep hazel eyes welled with passion. And suddenly she felt vulnerable. Overcome with the intensity of his eyes, his firm touch, she felt weak. As if something deep, something dormant was stirring inside her and she did not know what to do. He smiled. She tried to pull away from him but he wouldn't let go. With a strong grasp of the hand, he pulled up her leg. As she stared deep into those eyes, his fingers ran smoothly lightly kissing her soft down. With a terrified jerk, she pulled her leg back and turned back. She was walking away but he softly touched her delicate shoulders, but even his palms were radiating heat. She felt powerless. Her eyes closed. He went right behind her and planted a kiss on her neck. Holding her waist, he quietly took in her warmth. She stood, feeling his aura. Their eyes closed..

In the night sky above, the stars danced with wild flickering lights.

Like a piece to the puzzle that falls into place
You could tell how we felt from the look on our faces
We were spinning in circles with the moon in our eyes
The room left them moving between you and I

We forgot where we were and we lost track of time
And we sang to the wind as we danced through the night

This post has a dreamy like quality to it. Is that what you were imagining yday while crossing the deserted streets near science city and all? Really liked the poetry. Keep up the good work.

As I mentioned, the poetry is not my own. :P It is a very famous video, "Into the Night" by Chad Krueger and Santana to which I was listening while walking through the night streets..Inspiration for this post. Thanks. :)
