A gasp of breath caught in his throat
as her hand brushed against his arm.
Her enchanting musical laughter
proclaimed her feminine charm.

He trembled as she leaned to him
to whisper in his ear
thunder roared in his head
but he couldnít seem to hear.

The warmth of her promising smile
melted his heart so cold
her splendor dazzled his cynicís eyes
and caused his shriveled soul to unfold.

She stood as though waiting for him
and offered her hand for his own
he took her fingers lightly in his,
sighing now, a loverís moan.
