Welcome to the Jungle

By Jason Lyons

Bright swirls of colored smoke
Music pumping
Drums beating
My heart is on the hunt

Pitch black hair
Eyes dark and shining
Soft pale skin
A smile to consume my soul

Hands clasped
Your posture so perfect
The curve of your smile
The mystery in your eyes

Sitting indian style
Up so high
Eyes knowing
Saying little, hearing all

My heart racing
My palms sweating
My eyes darting
The hunter becomes hunted
