(or better known as Fire and Rain)
{ok ok ok I admit, I wrote this for someone else, BUT Balladeer asked for this! *wink*}


Rain falls
a steady percussion
of hollow drops
on the metal roof
invoking a dreamy feeling
firelight dances with shadows
upon the walls
in an intimate display
pitch crackles as the fire burns hotter
my hand in yours
as you pull me to you
to the sheepskin rug by the fire
your clear blue eyes gaze into mine
lips hovering just a whisper away
electricity flows between us
almost visible
in it's intensity
I sip the wine you poured
feeling a heady rush
sweet and warm
our bodies so heated
from the fires that rage
inside and out
your fingers curl around mine
taking the glass
as you lean close
settling your lips gently on mine
hands tangling in my hair
kiss deepening
as the rain and fire
sing a lulling duet
nothing else matters
just this moment
just this kiss
just you and I

Oh, Isabelle! The Skye has opened up and Heaven is shining through! You finally gave me my poem! Even though I know it's not true, I really appreciate your painting such a wonderful picture of everything I'm missing because you really mean it for someone else, and so now I can just read it and eat my heart out, you heartless creature!
Thanks a lot, buddy pal! (It's beautiful!)
