Elective Affinities

In the vastness of space
There are stars that choose
to revolve around each other.
We met -
as random as comets passing
our own paths predetermined
or so we thought.
With that first boyish grin
my orbit was revised.
I don't know -
was it my laugh, perhaps my smile?
that drew you in closer.
Maybe it was it gravity,
or magic-
that began our
elective affinity?
say what you will -
the effect is undeniable...
The energy created between us
filled the air.
pulling us closer...
my place?
no mine...
You drank whiskey
I prefer wine
You love this song -
so do I...
Slow dancing ~
melting into a kiss.
Statistical differences
fade into nothingness....
The warm sensation
of our hands,
learning the landscape
of the other's body.
Tongues the exploration.
Clothes leave the equation.
The energy pulling you
into me
impossible to resist.
my orbit irrevocably changed -
forever whirling
