slow dance

she knew she’d lose her balance

even before she’d started to dance

but she placed her hand in his

his other pressed the small of her back

and he led her to the dance floor

then into his arms

she was so close

she could smell his cologne

feel the warmth through his clothes

see his neck and his cheek

and the corner of his lips

her heartbeat quickened

even though it was a slow song

he pressed her hand underneath his jacket

pulled her closer

and all of her felt his heartbeat
