She slowly walked by
and made a racy comment,
while I thought
of some replies,
and then there was magic
that passed between our eyes,

she asked me for a dance,
a quick, quick step to the left,
a dip and then a twirl,
this woman was a Lady
and not a “sometime girl.”

Dancing across a checkered floor
with tiles of black and white.
I felt the wheels a turnin’,
wonderin’ about tonight
how it would be ending
and if we’d be spending
it together,
in the summer’s moonlight

She asked if I wanted
to go somewhere,
and I quickly responded “I do,
as long as I’m going with You!”

I said I’d get my car,
then she stopped me
and just said, “No!,
I think we’ll be going in my car
and I’ll let you see My Place!”
I nodded my head
and just said, “Sure”
and felt a blush upon my face.

She unlocked her front door
and opened it a crack
then she turned
and looked back
as she stared, deep into my eyes
and asked, if I would be staying?

I said that I would
and that My word was good,
and she could
check at any store.
and with a blindside kiss
and her hands upon my face
I knew I was fallin’ fast!

Faster and harder
than I’d ever done
with thoughts of a future
and her as The One!

And like a game of chess
She made the first move,
The Lady played White that night!

THUMB NAIL CHESS BOARD KISSAnd I’m glad that I stayed
and glad that we played
all through that moonlit night.

And, 30 years after
that very first night
I remember my words “I do”.
And still to this day
whenever we play,

The Lady, still Loves to Play White!THE LADY PLAYED WHITE

Inspired by the rules of chess where the person who plays white always makes the first move to start the game and applying it to a fantasy story about a guy and a Lady meeting in a bar and starting to play a little flirtatious game with each other where she wasn’t shy about making the first move!
