DANCING IN THE RAIN

The cyclonic wind, left me in the garden
A chromatic carpet of dry leaves …
And green leaves, papers and plastic bags!
Now it rains !
I go to the window and pull the curtain ….
I contemplate the rain, which falls torrentially
And it floods the lawn …
I am absorbed, absent, and motionless…
I love the sun, but I always liked to see raining …
The sun gives me energy …
The rain takes all my suffer …
Looks like I’m lighter, fresher …
I stood there and watched …
It was not rain anymore …
It was you I thought of!
It was with you that I danced …
Indifferent to the falling rain …
We started with the bolero, face in face ……
We went to samba, rumba and cha cha cha
Paso doble, tango and foxtrot …
And we ended up on the quickstep!
Dance relaxes and reduces anxiety …
Takes away tension and improves mood …
It releases endorphin and serotonin …
The hormones of pleasure … inviting to love …
In dance steps …
Blazing fire and joy …
I went back to bed … pleasurable …
And laugh … laugh … laugh!
I wanted to love you so much …
I pretended you were there with me …
Covered by a blanket of roses …
Our favorite color, scarlet!
Tell me , you love me?
Love says, you love me !!?
Responds ! Do you still love me?!
No answer …
I rushed to the other bed’s side, to meet you …
I closed my eyes …
I licked my lips …
And I made love to you!
The crumpled sheets …
Still in my body your sweat and your heat …
The moans in my ears …
When I opened my eyes, I saw everything …
There were obvious signs …
What a hot night of love …
It had happened!
My love … you were not there…
If so…it would have been all perfect!
