(A Collaboration with Cherry Rose)

Take the lead within this dance
Hold me tightly, flesh-to-flesh
As we now commence, the tango

Your body taut, feeling every move
Dancing to the freedom, in poetry
In each tantalizing shift on the floor

Held inside the depths of your mind
A pause amid, the depth of those eyes
Lost within your dark, hypnotic gaze

Entrancing me into your divine stance
In a torrid love affair, lost in these arms
Taking hold of the mind, this body – soul

Thoughts controlled to extension in dance
Captured time and time again, in rhythm
Moving in tune to the melody, of this love

So close, I inhale the breath you exhale
Creating magic, making my mind sway
Wrapping, my heart around your essence

From a place that moves my soul, into yours
We now become one, to the harmonic lyrics
Both our spirits soar, in delightful creation

Only you and I can hear the tune in our hearts
As we dance under the mystical, magical moon
Getting lost within each other’s, deep embrace

Nothing external, in the sphere we now behold
May ever separate our beings, co-existing in time
Oh my love, you and I are destined to become one

Enraptured in this sublime piece of music – dance
A lover’s tango that takes us on a journey of bliss
Held hostage with each – every move of the body

(A Collaboration with poet Cherry Rose)

A heart that beckons
Calling out a name
Time and time again
A love that surpasses
The essence of being

This yearning so strong
No longer can one deny
Reaching out – touching
The core of his existence
Through silent whispers

Two spirits that have met
Feeling each other’s heart
Speaking through thoughts
Holding on to each - other
Locked in a warm embrace

The serenity of such a love
Bringing forth “eudemonia”
A state of complete bliss
Engraving the heart – soul
Everlastingly without end

Though one’s eyes have not met
Your love, is light as a feather
It caresses me as it slowly falls
Into the sweet depths of my mind 
Bewitching every cascading notion

I lay here catching the falling star
That brings you into my dreams
This distance cannot keep apart
When two souls are destined to be
As it, be written in the stars above

Come now and tread the unknown
Fearless we now stand in freedom
Removing every shackle that bind
Taking flight, soaring in sensation
Of a love so timeless – unbounded
