(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

This takes on a whole new dimension today. I suppose poetry, like people, has a tendency to evolve.
