One Dance (Gingerbay Café)

in a dimly lit café
her natural beauty
illuminated the table.

soft red light gently caresses
her luscious features
as slow reggae jams
dominate the cosy space.

Beres Hammond was
at his vintage best,
so i asked her for one dance.

that night,
the DJ was indulging in musical sorcery-
with every selection,
we sink
in a sea of romantic fantasies.

her now warm body so soft
i can taste her silky smoothness,
her head upon my chest as the lyrics
take us away captives,

my lips refashioned
from whispering honeyed words,
to playfully pecking her forehead
to lightly caressing
her irresistible lips.

we are now drifting in musical waves
where slow dancehall
bump and grind
evoke fast and choppy breaths.

sensual rhythms tie us up so close
that the tip of my nose
skim across her steaming body
the heat…

radiates the soothing fragrance
of her arresting perfume
i am anchored!

we are lost in this dancehall sea
and time no longer has meaning
as we sail on from one
musical selection to another,
riding the waves of a multitude of
lyrical passion.
