Would You, Please?

Romance Languages

Dance with me

Like that elderly couple


In the band shell

At night

That I never would have seen

If not for you.


Impress me

With that methodical mind


The odds of us


Forty years from now

Still surprising eachother.  


Laugh with me

Like seeing childhood friends


At private jokes

Wicked winks

That look so damn good

In your eyes.


Astonish me

Like shattering the illusion


The only limit I had

Was just

A figment of my imagination

Twice in one day.


Whisper to me

Something nice or something naughty


Something funny or profound

And do it

In that sexy Romanian accent

That makes me tremble.



What else can you do?
