Just a little something in honor of sleepyvalentina's birthday. Inspired by Cole Porter and Twilight, of course...


You Are The One

Night and Day, by Cole Porter

Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall

Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops
When the summer shower is through
So a voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me, or far
It's no matter darling where you are
I think of you
Day and night, night and day, why is it so

That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Day and night, night and day

Under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And this torment won't be through
Until you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

I watch you from afar. The shadows disguise me, while the moon illuminates you.

Your heart taps out a steady rhythm, a hypnotic jungle beat.

It calls to me.

I close my eyes and inhale your scent. The heavy summer air intensifies its aroma, swirling around my head, tormenting me with its sweetness. I am mad with desire, with want, and with need.

I yearn for you.

I am burning with hunger and I long to press my mouth against your soft, white neck.

You pass by, and I follow, because I know you are the one.



Thanks to wickedcicada for sparking my interest. Happy Birthday sleepyval...you are a fab writer and I am thrilled that you are writing My Life to Be. Perhaps one day we can giggle together over what lies behind the peep holes at the Art Museum and raise a glass together at McGillans.
