Prompted: #1

The night came on like velvet

The fireplace was well lit

And I held you oh so tight

The night was like a whisper

Until this instant I missed her

But everything now was alright

Love’s a wild serenade, yeah

The silence soon a cascade, yeah

Far more now than lust at first sight

The realest thing is ethereal

Enigma or not, immaterial

The meaning of life is delight

    I read this like a song almost. I think the "yeah"'s at the end of the two of the lines lent themselves to this impression. I liked it- felt upbeat.

    I got the sense of a bit of tipsyness and lightheaded fun and games in this one. I like the bit of crazy to the tone.

    Very evocative I sensed a fireplace in this when I read it.
