Can we please just dance.

July 19, 2010
I know if i just say the word
you take me up
and spin the world.
But honestly,
I don't really have to say
i can keep silence
and not make a peep.
And you'll always
take me.

A lean in
and a simple kiss
a brush of your lips.
And I'll be dancing.
a simple kiss.

It will be a tango,
because that takes two.
It will be a waltz,
That's what your mother taught you to do.
It will be a fox trot.
with a fiery passion,
burning in me.
And in you.

Were Off.
In our El Dorado.
We'll dance the valleys.
In lexington
we'll turn that boring town
into something to talk about.

And don't worry
i won't ever leave.
if you forever keep me dancing.

Clever clever clever. The dancing concept is admirable. If you really take interest in poetic references to dancing wherein emotions are delivered via the steps, then perhaps you can read my poem. It's titled Masquerade.

Joyfully romantic. It illustrated wonderfully the happy simplicity and complexity of love.
