Red Wine and Us

clink glass filled
lingered look eyes to eyes
glass to lips slow
a sip of
liquid redness

read my mind through my eyes
what do I think
lips moist
a taste of blackberry
a hint of cinnamon

slowly grape silkiness
flows over my tongue
you watch me I watch you
cherry plum
warm spice

deep in colour succulent
tannins seduce my mouth
trickle down my throat
fruit that

warming as it enters me
fruits of berries elegant
dusty earthy tones
perfectly paired
like us
