Candlelight: the first date

Awaiting your company
calls for heated anticipation,
freshly brushed teeth,
a sprits of ‘Sweet Seduction”,
and an optimistic,
welcoming heart
for the two of us.

I hear your footsteps outside
and the thuds of my heart
as I adorn the table perfectly
with cappuccinos
and slender candles
only a couple,
for the two of us.
