Painted needs, hues in primal love
 Wing into forbidden spaces, subtle as thought
 Some dancers know its ancient rhythm
 In warm hollows and old calls

 Smiling to surrender, heady from sweet defeat
 Desires play their treacherous intrigues
 Needs burn silent unsung fires
 Teasing long nights through unsure moments

 Souls moving towards fires and destiny
 Lose perfect lives and perfect homes
 Drawing warmth from secret hearths
 Secrets old as life itself

Reason voices her warning notes
 But some dancers move all the same
 Picking up rhythm to know the moment
 As life unfolds their pagan origin...

    Hi delving in your past posts while waiting for a new one.// Desires dwell in all of us and often we crave them at whatever cost; emotions take control and at times we are left in their clutches! Should we go along with them or keep pulling back? // paul
