Dance till ruin

Evil-minionby Ethel Twigg24 Apr 2015

The dance that lasted all night
until dawn they moved
a ballet and fiery embrace
into first light

Swirling, clutching
soft and hard
nibbling, gnawing kisses
delicate caress
with rough measures
the tempo riding waves

But as they look upon their ruin
daybreak smiles on loves faces
these dancers, fingers touching
share the same breath momentarily
and sleep within the embrace
of their ruin
