Flakes Against our Skin

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

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

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

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

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