And We Danced.....

By: Carly Ann McGovern

And we danced.
In the cool, dark basement
To the soft muted tunes of an r&b song
that played on a local radio station
we danced
and he held me tight against him
I could feel his heart beat against my cheek
and his breathing is quick and shallow
and we danced
swaying gently back and forth
with my arms around his neck
and his encircling my waist
we danced
softly moving to the slow rhythm
I can feel his breath in my hair
as he rests his face upon my head
and we danced
the final notes of the song are sounding
and he leans down for a kiss
the music stops, the dancing stops
and time stops
as he brings his lips to mine.
