Dance Partner

You swim
in my musings,
make waves
and they look like
songs.
Long
and repeating.
Soft
and appealing.

 

And it's this melody
that enthralls me.
This feeling
that draws me
closer to madness.
That I might have this
chance
to dance so closely
to your enchants.

 

I practice
in my room,
stepping clumsily
and with an awkward gait.
My rhythm heavy
as my mind creates
your visage:
tender yet frightening,
gentle but bold.

 

I know not
how this will unfold
come time to take the floor
and lead,
only that I'd be happy
with your hand to hold...

Beautiful write! I can feel

Beautiful write!
I can feel myself being swept away by the dancing tide.
Practicing to, at the very least, hopefully negotiate with some grace its next bout of ebbs and flows.
I really like this, thank you for sharing.
