Shadow on the Wall

A Poem by SyberRose

She hears music playing; her shadow on the wall

waiting to be asked to the shadow ball

It has been so long since an arm around her waist

dancing cheek to cheek as fingers interlace

She lights a jasmine candle and places it by her side

Waiting  for another shadow while she dances teary eyed

The flame begins to dance within the naked night

enticing each other as they tango and incite

Spinning and twirling around the candlelit room

 sweet fragrance seduces as love begins to bloom

Wick of night disappears in the midnight hour

One shadow dancing; a lonely wallflower

 Always to be a solo ballerina.

never to tango  to a concertina

Well, Dear Rose,
You can just light another candle for me, because my shadow loves to tango close and tight with a heavenly lady shadow, to the jaunty lilt of a lively concertina.
Now, you've gone and done it, lured my breath to quicken with the heartbeat's amorous tempo.
With such soft and tender sensuality, how can any man resist the lure and heat of your seductive "candle".

MMmmm, I truly and dearly love it, Rose! ~ Richard

How could I not be pleased ~*
Reminds me of the Helen Reddy song, "Angie Baby". You paint a vivid picture with your words. Such a sad situation....poignant. Just one tiny edit, I think in Line 7, you left off the "s" on "flame". Lydi**
