Anticipation

Candles burning
sheets turned down
anticipation abounds.

Time passes slowly
quiet as a mouse
stars falling
earth standing still.

Waiting
eternally waiting
suspense filled evening.

The phone rings
You say my name
come get me
I am here.

Passion explodes
excitement is in the air
soon you will be here.

Candles burning low
Sheets thrown down
Passion spent
Boytoy's in town.
