Mellow Vibrations

The song I got is Stir it up by Bob Marley
My inspiration:
“It’s been a long, long time, yeah!
(stir it, stir it, stir it together)
Since I got you on my mind. (oh-oh-oh-oh) Oh-oh!
Now you are here (stir it, stir it, stir it together), I said,
It’s so clear
There’s so much we could do, baby, (oh-oh-oh-oh)
Just me and you.”

Listen here.

Mellow vibrations

Puff puff pass…
We stood conversing,
jokes followed by laughter
high in the air.
The same air; swallowed by comforting thoughts.
Puff puff pass…
We rocked side by side to the sweet sounds of reggae,
dipping in tune with the chimes of percussion.
Not so greatly singing along,
word for word to Protoje’s song.
Puff puff pass…
The vibrations of the bass moves through me,
clashing and playing in time with my heartbeat.
Both of us alive and energized by the sounds.
Just me and you.
Puff puff pass…
More laughter ensues.
My mind starts swirling.
My body stirs,
calling for yours.
Puff puff pass…
We’re on our last draw.
Forgive me Father,
for I want to sin.
But, do I have the courage to give in?

I love reading poems, so I decided to give it a try on my own challenge. What do you think?
