Because I told Sylvan I would...

This is the poem I won an award for.


Pretty words fall like golden coins,
Excite the senses, stir the loins.
We play the ageless courtship dance,
Bat the eye, take the chance.

Secret words, hidden meanings,
Valuable information gleanings.
Circles within circles and games within games.
Find the answers, know the names.

Poetic words reveal the plot.
Tangled webs, don't get caught.
Capture the prey that we've sought.
Play the strings as they ought.

But still, as we each play our role,
Do we touch more, within the soul?
Flirting gesture, meaningful touch,
Moving closer, feeling much.

When you flirt and how you tease,
I need to know, tell me please.
Pretend attraction, that is your part.
But is that your character speaking, or your heart?
