Flakes Against our Skin

How many years have I danced alone
To rhythms, rhymes and dreams
Giving over hope to wandering notes

Great bird of fire, you once moved with me
Dazzling lights across smiling eyes
Strong bodies sliding softly 'cross the floor

Dark winters' solitude crept between us
Bodies cooling and fading to cracked stone
Softly falling snow diluting purer sweat

The land is not yet frozen though 'ts covered
Some heat still burns below the surface
Remembering fire and friction's joy

Dance with me again my friend
Burn just one night more within my arms
Turn the slowly falling snow to steam
