I shiver with a song you've left unsung.
Your eyes are dancing in the candlelight--
invitation, soft as sugar on the tongue.

The bells that greet the evening hours have rung.
You words are trapped in courtesy, too polite;
I shiver with a song you've left unsung.

I am impatient, though the night is young;
a scent like longing promises delight,
invitation, soft as sugar on the tongue.

One touch; you startle as if you've been stung:
a fledgling bird preparing to take flight.
I shiver with a song you've left unsung.

To your warm skin a honeyed taste has clung,
a silken sweetness begging me to bite--
invitation, soft as sugar on the tongue.

A thousand whispered secrets are among
the many pleasures promised by this night.
I shiver with a song you've left unsung;
invitation, soft as sugar on the tongue.

I have this poem printed out somewhere, mixed in among a bunch of other papers. Every once in a while I happen across that sheet of paper again and it makes me smile. I love you.

I no longer startle much when people touch me. And for some reason I have mixed feelings about that.
