Step by Step
by Margaret Fieland

We come together in the crowded
room,
the music so loud talking is impossible.
We dance, at first quickly,
then more and more slowly,
the air becoming thick and difficult to
breathe.

I put a tentative hand on your shoulder,
another at your waist;
you, bolder, put your arms around my
neck.

Our hips touch, then our breasts.
My hand slips slowly your arm;
your skin is warm, the small hairs tingle.
You smile into my eyes.
We sway together to the music.

If we go outside
and lean against the wall
we can become more closely
acquainted.




Lovers

A tentative touch,
as, tickling
and tightly tingling

so very vividly, warmly welcomed,
we writhe, when with
versatile variety, we claim
a violent victory.

With tender touches we savor
a sweet satisfaction
and silently slip
back to sleep.
