Secret Dreams

One steplong, silkyblack as night.All eyes turnbreath stills.Eyes hooded,blood red lipssmile.She is nightShe is desireShe is all men's dreamsdeep in the darknesswhere secrets liewaiting for a sparkto set them afire.Slight shift,tongues slowly slidewetting lipssuddenly dry.Full of possibilitiesunknown danger.Who will fallprey to a strangersdesire.
