That briefest of glances, across darkened space,
Those delicate movements, exuding their grace,
Those exciting eyes, where mischief is lurking,
Ideal respite from a day of working.
Go over and find an excuse to say ‘Hi’,
With strong innuendos, the hours fly by,
All too soon it’s the end of the evening,
“Back to their place?” you hear, disbelieving.
Some more drinks inside, and you’re in the bedroom,
Become ever closer, then passion consumes,
The two of you left feeling interconnected,
The evening turns out not-at-all as expected.
