Poetry fest

I'LL HAVE THIS DANCE
My heart beats a tune with yours
A song whose words I never learnt
Bubbles, spills all around us
The whisper of your fingertips
Like the tentative first notes
Of a song in a mystery language
My skin leaps to meet your hands
Like the melody of string instruments
We flow, we writhe together
In this corporeal dance
Strum me, your guitar
Beat me, your drum
Blare me, your trumpet
Let this dance begin

DRESSED TO KILL
In
Your minuscule
Outfit
And
My minuscule
Heartbeat
At
Your Luminous
Beauty
I
Keel Over
Slowly

THE END (it ended, he wrote half of this, I wrote the other half)
Looking back
Words never said
Silence broken only
By the sound of hearts breaking
Driving off in a cloud of dust
I face the end before the beginning
Listless days
Tears almost shed
Music that teases and tortures
Memory, a throbbing tooth
I will no longer have you
