I remember Otis Redding

I remember Otis Redding

and the song ‘These Arms of Mine’

and holding onto Juliet

if only for a moment’s time


the breath, the tears, the quiver shake

the whisper of a truest love

the strength consumed by our sweet dance

infused by Venus from above


the verses shared by candlelight

intoxicating lines undressed

enhanced by sips of pink champagne

and kisses as a rose, soft pressed


for years forgotten, swept away

these memories I hid from view

but suddenly my heart, reborn,

 seeks the passion it once knew


wherefore art thou, Juliet?

how your Romeo does grieve

for the loss of your embrace

and the love he can’t retrieve
