The Courtship

The Courtship

written & performed by: Luiz Syphre



I want to share
the moonlight rays with you
under the covers
of the sandy beach at Corner’s Bay

I want to talk to you
feel your warm voice in my ear
and look at the reflection of the stars
in your baby blues

I will feel your candy coated lips
stretch and curve to your ears
when I’m not looking
as I will dive deep within you

to retrieve and then release
that joyful expression
for you are the last woman on earth
as you are the only woman I see

I will die if I don’t caress your sweet face
and trace every wrinkle and line
with my index until I know
all the contours by memory

I wish for the anticipation of our first kiss
as we come face to face
with our breath of whiskey
and the encapsulating scent of burning mesquite

I fantasize to be growing weary and tired
listening to every one of your stories
until the break of dawn
as the sun rises in your diamonds

and there in your look is where I see
the bliss I was never to have again
