If We Could Dance

Strumming my heartstrings Drawing me in with each note Playing the most beautiful song Hearing the words you wrote Filling in all the gaps The melody is for me Beating loud and clear Setting my heart free Only distance keeping us at bay You still have me in your trance Two hearts apart, beating as one How I wish we could dance A soft kiss upon your delicate hand Holding you close, holding you tight Slow dancing under the moonlit skies The perfect girl, the perfect night

In This Elegant World

Waltzing, I’m waltzing around and around with a one-two-three, one-two-three, to the sweet sound of the orchestra playing. I’m one lucky girl, for I’m with someone special who knows how to twirl me so masterfully, and the ladies so fair wearing gowns and with ribbons tied up in their hair move among us like swans, each a belle of this ball. Now we glide past the lights that adorn a long wall, and I hold up my skirt from the smooth shiny floor as I smile up with joy at the face I adore. For this gent, my pure love I am waiting to give. In this elegant world, it’s romance that we live! With a one-two-three, one-two-three, always I’ll be in the arms of this beautiful man leading me. For Ballroom Delights Contest

We Danced Through Life


We danced amongst the stars that night
when joy had fallen far from sight 

We danced under the sun so bright
And when all seemed lost, we held on tight

We danced to the music of hummingbirds
And we danced in the silence when there were no words.

We danced in the shadows of fear and doubt
And we danced when we questioned what life’s about

We danced amongst the evergreens
That posed for painters winter scenes.

We danced in the winters bitter chill
And when we danced our world stood still.

For that’s what love was meant to be
To find the dance when we cannot see.

To write a new song when the music stops
With lyrics that caress every tear that drops.

For when the rhythm changes and tempo slowed
We’re called to dance with the seeds we sowed.

For life is hard, there is no doubt
But Dancing through it, is what life’s about.

Goodbye, My Child

Where cradled canyons sing
Of ebony wood in the forest
There lies a gurgling spring
Where cockcrows sing their chorus
To the melody of singsong birds
There I’ve concealed my sensuous words
Filled with befitted signs
The saccharine whiff of my designs

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Where the fogs of night are fountains
Spills of glistened moon ignite
By distant silhouette mountains
We dance with passion of fight
Entwining ancient stance 
Mingling hand in hand we dance
Till the mountains smile on high
Near and far we spring
To pursue the realest of dreams
While the world cries at its seams
Anxious in trouble to cling

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

To where the ridges merry make 
From the beaks of wooden bright
In sparkly pools the ghouls awake
That scarce to stir our night
We watch for seekers down under
Muttering secrets in their soul
We bid them lucks of shivers
Dipping gently in
From reeds that hide a tear of a foal
Under the gentle rivers

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

Far away she shall ever churn
The taciturn eyed
She’ll listen no more to turn
To the working mills beside
Or the scrubbing of the barn
May peace weave in her song
She shall wave in the yarn
To a haven known as Belong  

Come to me my mortal youth
To the wild realm of your truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only your tears be found

For she comes, the mortal youth
To the wild realm of her truth
Where nymphs and gnomes abound
For the earth is filled with weeping
And only her tears be found

Magic Words The Libertine Called Passion

The libertine flails his torches
Burning staffs in his hands aglow
Golden sparks from the kindle beseech you
To dance on flames that he throws
For he is a man they call Passion
No soul has escaped what he's sowed


Good bye to innocence
Only embers are left where he's roamed
Good bye to innocence 
We all dance on the coals he calls love.

He is the thief we call Ardor
He spins plumes of turquoise and gold
Challengers fall, all are smitten
By warm sultry nights and moon glow
Behind his mask love is yearning
To break free of seductions steel glove

Good bye to innocence
His restraints bind us coarsely entombed
Good bye to innocence
We will dance on the ruins he calls love .

Unexpected events

My watch is broken, I can not wait for you to get here
The sun is heating,(I cannot believe) today, we're finally meeting.
I'm not quite sure how I'm gonna act or what I'm gonna say
But of one thing I'm sure, when you'll be in front of me, you'll take my breath away.


While I'm waiting, my mind is flying away
From the moment you'll get here, to the first move you'll make.
I just wish, this day to be perfect
I hope I'm ready for any unexpected events.


It's getting late and you're nowhere to be found
I'm getting all kinds of emotions, but is nothing I can do about..
The park is empty, looks like the rain is gonna arrive
I guess I should be going too, nothing makes me stay around.


Maybe you got stuck in traffic or you've just changed your mind,
Either way, I better go now, maybe we'll get to meet some other time..
And now my battery is dying, I have such a lucky day,
I don't think this day could get any better,
           >>no 'eff!n' way!!<<


Where should I go now? to the hotel or to a pub?
I'll get me something to drink before Imma call it a nite.
I don't find my card key, guess I'm losing my mind..
Huh?!
 Who the 'eff' are you 'my friend'?
 Why do you have to honk so loud?


    you: Hey!!!
    me: Gosh, you scared me!
    you: Where are you going? don't we have a date?
    me: Hey, you're the one that got here late.
    you: Yeah, I'm sorry. look, I've been running all the way...
    me: Cool. I'm glad you came.
           I'm starving. where you gonna take me?
    you: well, since our picnic is ruined, thanks to the coming rain.. 
           lemme take you to my favorite restaurant..
    me: sounds great. OK.


While in the car, you've turned on the radio
And the silliest song was playing in the air
Smiling, you looked at me and started dancing
Gosh, you're amazing. (that's what I said)


We've got to the restaurant
It's getting pretty hot
No sign of the rain now
Guess she just changed her mind.


When I stepped inside
My favorite song was playing .. so loud
And once you've heard it, you took my hand in yours and smiled
you: Hey, this is our song since now!!


Since then I got this feeling, this awesome feeling inside
I'm with the right person and the nite has just begun
You're full of surprises, beautiful and kind
For me you are so special, I'll roll my dice tonight.


Next thing I know, we were back in the car
The music was playing loud, you were driving too far
The last stop we've made, was at the hotel I'm staying
You grabbed me in your arms and .. and then's when it started ... raining.


The weather gets colder, your hand is on my shoulder,
I ask you if you want to come and wait inside.
The fireplace is on, your clothes are on the stove
I bring you comfy clothes, while you're in the shower.


The rain is falling from the sky, the night is deep, looks black and white
I pour you a glass of wine while getting closer.
The electricity goes off, all of a sudden
We're in the dark, the music stops - I lit (up) a candle.


Looks like the rain has stopped now (or for the moment)
I pour you another glass of wine..
I touch your hand, you're grabbing mine
And pull me closer.


The last thing I remember, you were playing through my hair
I felt your (warm) breath down on my neck and I've kissed your shoulder
Slowly, you laid me down, on the floor, whispering something in my ear
Your fingers were walking down my spine, I've closed my eyes.. that's when we've kissed.


We've spent the night together, sleeping in each other arms
I was your blanket, you were my pillow - the dawn was coming fast.
I woke up and.. watching you sleeping
You found me smiling when you've opened your eyes.


Things went so fast - time was flying by
Only four days, until we say goodbye.
All the sand from the beach, the pictures framed in our minds
The scrambled eggs in the mornings, (all those) kisses (stolen) through the night.


While I'm counting the seconds, my mind is flying away
From the moment we've met, to the last thing you'll say.
I just wish, this day to last forever
I hope our story will never have an end.


In the airport, while waiting for our planes to come
Our silly love song was playing one more time
And once again, you took my hand in yours and smiled
That's when you've asked me, if I want to be ... your wife.

Dance Of The Butterflies

I had received lots of love in years past I have felt all joys and pitfalls of it No pain seems to enter my simple life Love entertains me, that wonderful hit I know my life floats above tender hearts That which brings love, but sometimes avoids me I move quickly this way and that in air I have “dance of the butterflies” simply My life moves in all respects here and there Highs and lows of dance are of gratitude Love escapes my lips to my gracious love My eyes have passion that brings attitude

Shall we Dance---Everlasting dance together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

Eccentric eyes

Eccentric eyes

He felt her molding in his mind with sorcery and guise;
the gorgeous and deceptive maid, out of his poems leapt
confusion causing in his thoughts her almond eyes of vice,
theatrical eccentric play, and Shakespearean script.

Enchanting her Medusa comb with serpents was so crowned,
two wolfish fangs protruded when her dismal glance she gleamed
her howling lifted in the air as sharp as ultrasound,
abruptly, thus, out of his eyes, eccentric feelings streamed.

In order to enchant the maid, he started dancing jazz
he wore a Capri pair of pants and fuchsia polo shirt
behind his ear a daisy bore, with splendor and pizzazz,
his smile allowed three golden teeth to shine virile and pert.

Eccentric was his dance for her, outside the discotheque
with eyes that squinted humorous, he jumped par amor'
the serpents twisted happily and hissed to bedeck
the Saturday performance of his sandals on the floor.

Delighted was her evilness, the snakes their eyes then crossed
because his eccentricity prevailed in logic since
his golden teeth the creatures stunned, ensorcelled and embossed,
and in the maiden's frozen heart, he was transformed to Prince.

A Lover's Query

A Lover's Query

I cannot love thee any more , nor less
hast thou not thrilled to my nightly embrace
cried about sins I faithfully confess
in shock at my previous sinner's race?

Nay, fair lady think me not a high fool
a master of deceit that sells my charm
tormentor in words so very cruel
ruffian that scurries about to harm!

My lady, looks at me the cock that crows
that preens in the morning to please the Sun
strutting, pleasing your eyes as our love grows
do you speak soft and I come on a run?

Do we not share this secret lover's bond?
Secret nights of which you are very fond?

Dreams of Fantasy and Desire

Dreams of Fantasy and Desire


Midnight was black not one shining star
yet her heart shown on me from afar
Glowing beams that pierced my heart
fallen deeply in love from the start

As the night sounds ebbed and flowed
that beacon lovingly sent glowed
Moon appeared to lessen its might
nothing could outshine it that night

The hours slowed to gift us more joy
we played in love as each others toy
Dreaded were moments before the sun
woke us with nights loving then done

She the glowing rays that lit a fire
from the dreams of fantasy and desire!

My Lady Requests So Much

My Lady Requests So Much


Shall I splash love into your gay heart
gift a golden treasure beneath your feet
setting my sail into your longing chart
my heart quickly pulsating to your beat

Shall I chain my mind to your sexy dream
clouds of hope wrapped deep into your quests
Tasting the sweetest drops from your steam
slavishly hold each of your love requests

Shall I now set my hopes onto your all
embracing your charms every night's feast
Set my heart to your every beck and call
worship your beauty as a loyal priest

Nay, my love I shall gift to you with strings
Requesting songs of your love that rings!

Robert J. Lindley  08-28-2014

note: All requests are granted. 
I that trades love for love find a 
treasure beyond all measure!

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

Passionate Love

I want you..
And I was made just for you
I'll make love to you
All the night with you

Feel my heart that burns in fire
Look my eyes that full of desire
As our bodies ignite in passion
Our souls chain in a strong union

Carressing every part of you
Gives me satisfaction
Dancing in the hymn of love
That just the two of us can hear it loud

Nothing seperate me from you
No one could make me feel like the way you do
Our passion for each other binds us together
And our love for each other makes us FOREVER!

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)

Romany Gypsy

With flashing eyes she did enthral
as to the beat of drums she danced
a wild flamingo with clacking castanets
her wide hooped skirt was all a-swirl

Golden earrings sparkling and flashing
heels looking impossibly high as she twirls
her eyes flashing enticing messages 
as the men flock to her a mocking laugh

Siren of the senses as well she knows
she taunts and teases as she grabs hold
only to push her admirer head over heels
leaving him stunned and dazed in the dirt

In a puff of smoke she vanishes from view
long rolls of drums call to her to come back
the men look in vain for her return
a soft voice enticingly calls from the shadows

Singing of long journeys to far away exotic places
of caravan wheels swishing and of horses gavotting
of smokey camp fires bristling with full cauldrons
no clue to what lies within just enticing smells

She tells of lovers she has known in distant past
entreating the men, who try their luck to no avail
she sits brushing her long raven black hair of curls
and the sparks fly giving her an ethereal appearance

The fires die low and still she has not yet chosen
it seems she is waiting for someone not now here
flashes of lightening fork across the sullen skies
and the skies open in deluges of rain and thunder

As her admirers scatter seeking shelter she laughs
spinning round and round hair flying out scattering
droplets that glisten and sparkle in pale light
at last she crumbles done to the sodden ground 

A mighty flash of lightening rends the sky in half
highlighting a jet black horse rearing up high
she runs forward laughing he is here, he has come
her gypsy king, he swings her up before him and turns

As the summer storm fades the last fork shows
the two lovers high-lit on the rolling hill
then gone, gone to their secret place of tryst
she leaves lingering memories in men's minds of what might have been

Sometimes I Feel Beautiful

Sometimes I Feel Beautiful
Driving along thinking about what I’m about to do brings a smile to my face. Without a doubt my hair and nails make a big difference in the way I feel about myself! When I look pretty; I feel pretty.
Today my nails will be done in pink and white, oh yes, perfect they shall be. Nothing short of looking delicate and refined I tell myself. I am so excited; the anticipation brings joy into my heart and laughter to my lips! 
My hair appointment is closing in. High lights and shaping adds a playful and fun demeanor. Beautiful is how it’s going to look and beautiful is how I’ll feel. I almost need to pinch myself for I wonder is this really happening to me! Tears sting my eyes and giggles flow forth. Yes; this is my life and this is happening to me!
Thinking of my new makeup and how youthful I’m going to look brings joy into this heart of mine. I can hardly wait to put it on as the excitement builds; I dance around and giggle. I feel so beautiful thinking how perfect I’ll look with everything finished.
At times I tell myself, “I know he loves me, I can tell”. The glowing in his eyes seems to sparkle with love and passion. My Heart beats a little faster as excitement and wonder fills my entire being! Yes, this is how it should always be, a life filled with joy and laughter.
Finding ways to look beautiful helps me feel beautiful. It’s this that causes me to giggle and dance about. The unbridled excitement loosened, flowing through my veins fills me with love and wanting. Tomorrow just maybe this joy will add new meaning and direction causing me to continue feeling beautiful..
                                                                                           Debbie Knapp

A Season's Dance


She yearns for summer’s stage
as snowflakes minuet,
to escape winter’s cage
for summer’s footloose steps. 

A dream of sun-swept days
and bright-winged floating trails, 
of surf’s and sand’s sashays
spellbound by cobalt veils.

She waits for fall’s fair waltz
as heavy air heel-toes. 
Longing for vibrant vaults,
leaves choreographed show.

And while the foliage glides,
she prays for spring’s parade. 
Ne’er to be satisfied
with current dance displayed. 

Oh my, how petals sway
and raindrops pirouette.
Her love of springtime wanes
amidst the merriment. 

She calls to winter come
again and dance with me.
The rhythmic season’s hum, 
her playful fantasy.

Swirling, spinning, swinging
on starlight, seasons dance.
Twisting, tapping, turning -
the motions of romance.

She hopes one day to find 
the partner she adores.
Each season’s steps remind
of love she’s waiting for.

The Lovers Dance

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.

They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.

And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.

Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.

But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.

The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.

So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.

They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.

So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.

Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.


So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.

What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?

What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.

What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.

For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.

We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.

But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.

So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.

So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.

Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.

For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?

For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three

If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.

Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.

We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If  not there for each other then where is the hope?

You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.

So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.

By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.

For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.

He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.

So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.

They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.

You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.

So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

ALL YOUR WAYS

In my moonlight dream
I can't believe I'm really here
we’re dancing in a forest
You light my life when you're near
Green earth is our floor
Our steps are magic in this place
and moon beams - our disco ball
Stars all aligned - for loves embrace
while soft music is the night
Romantic whispers feel so right

You are clad in white
Now look deeper to the heart
My golden gown sweeps the ground
I was mesmerized from the start
My beautiful knight - 
Princess shining in the day
Your bright eyes adore me as
I'm taken by all your ways
you twirl me among the trees
Dreamer's breath becomes love's breeze

*Andrea wrote the original "My Moonlight Dream" as a double tanka (from the gal's perspective and all the odd numbered lines in this poem).  I came along and harmonized it by adding alternating rhyming lines (from the guy's perspective and all the even numbered lines in this poem) for each of her lines.. Thus a new duet original, "All Your Ways". Hope you enjoy it!

Dancing

Share, discover. 
With lips and fingers and skin
Tasting, touching and feeling
With tongue rolling in the wet longing

Silent cry, pleading
Agonized shiver seeking release
Of holding back to get to higher heights, 
Reaching firm the nape
Closely arching

Wrapping legs around the hips
Reaching for each other's soul
Searching. Seeking. Wanting

Feeding the echoes of glory
Til ultimate unity entangled in rhymes
Squeeze me tight
Faster now, urging on and on.

Dancing in pleasure's rhythm
Lips locked and sealed, embracing.

Entwined, lurking in bliss of screaming wants! 
Wanting More. More..Please. More.

To stop this ragged breathing
Hands holding, entwining

To stop this trembling body
Gasping breaths so warm and teasing
She says, never stop
Joined bodies in unison moving.

Screaming like no one cares to listen
Perspiring. Slipping. Sliding. Slurping
Spurting spirits release the final dance

Pounding hearts now the only sound
That join heavy blissful breathing
Holding on in embrace so tight
Hoping the next one comes 
When morrow's warmed by the sun.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

Standing in the corner, watching all the love and romance
Watching the twirling couples with envy as they dance

The fast ones and the slow ones, they dance the night away
But I remembered what you told me, just the other day.

Yes you can dance if you long to, dance your night away
Dance until the dawn arrives, and the start of a new day.

But no matter how long you dance or which partner you dance with
Remember they just want to dance, they don’t have love to give.

The dance that is important is the last dance of the night
The last dance that you dance, will be with the one who loves you right.

When we are on the dance floor, and the rest of the dancers are gone
The dance will be for us my love, a dance of love that goes on and on.

On the dance floor of desire which is the dance floor of such love
We’ll dance the last dance together, as close as hand in glove.

The last dance will be a slow one, and will last our whole lives through
So save that last dance for me my love, the one that loves you true.

BECOMING US

You're on a roll, just like a show, maybe I know
You light the way, I want to play, I'm ready to go

Strike the match, feel the friction, oh so inspired
It's getting hot, I've got the fever, let's perspire 

Like the dawn, morning sunrise, angelic voice
You call, I chose you, girl you're my choice

Your words, like braille, rise on my heart
My words, you could tell, right from the start

Embers ignite, what a sight, on a moonlit night
A lover's leap, I want your heart, I'll make it beat

This kind of flame, can't be tamed, don't even try
You're the one, let's have some fun, no alibis 

Take the ride, let's not hide, what's obvious
Hand in hand, you and me,  let's become us

What a rush, girl feel the rush..
you and me, 
What a rush..
me and you..
becoming us!

Dancing among the Stars

Dancing among the Stars
As night soon be falling
I Hear...  calling
Whispering out my name

As I shall go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As my Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night Twilights

Just until midnight
For when the clock strikes
Then I must leave
Quickly… For I must go.. away
That way no-one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... 
just a dream

But.. I shall dance among the Stars 
Singing praises unto my king
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly’s in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars

The dance

If I were to take your hand
                                     And ask you to dance
By the light of the moon
                                     Would you take a chance
You know I am just a dreamer
                                     Or so it would seem
For there is nothing I won't do
                                     In search of my dream
To me a dream is but a story
                                     Waiting to be told
And as a poet writes their dream
                                     They try to break the mold
So as you dance across your dream
                                     Trying to get it right
Close your eyes and drift away
                                     Dance with me tonight
As we dance across the floor
                                     Know my words are true
I have answered all my dreams
                                     Just by holding you

"Moon Lit Dance"

Our slow dance under the stars and moon...
The music in the background plays our tune...
The sand on the beach is our dance floor...
Your hips move slow and have me wanting more...
The glow of the sky is our crystal ball...
And this secluded ocean front is our dance hall...
We blend into one as the song plays on...
A waltz across this stage to a sand dune where we bond...
The grooves are slow the motion seductive...
This dance of love is a gift that we both live...

The Boatmans Song 2

The Boatman’s Song        2/ Many

Urvashi’s heart was aching to hear and to see the elegance  
Of the boatman, while he sing those melodies on earth 
A great longing started sprouting in her bosom  
To visit the earth and to listen those heart touching songs 
Which like a powerful magnet were pulling her towards earth
Where flows the Ganges and lives her unseen love 

To control her ever increasing desire of hearing those songs 
And to see that unique boatman, who lives on earth 
Urveshi tried to engage her more and more 
In the courtly dances and engagements for Indra
But the more she wanted to escape, more she became enchanted
By the echoes of boatman’s songs 
Which were tearing her heart and 
Making her mind almost intoxicated,  
By the melodies of those heavenly songs

The pleasures and comforts of heaven began to pinch her 
Like the piercing thorns 
Even the dance and music, which were her pride and passion
Became dull and charm less in the wake of those songs
For which she was hailed 
As the best among all the Apsaras in the entire universe  

Heaven seems to bring no joy and rejoicing for her any more
Her dancing steps, which were the symbols of perfection and beauty
Even started betraying her 
As her own heart was no longer in her possession any more
And she found that her mind and heart
Were swept away by that unseen boatman
Sailing his boat somewhere on earth

Apsara Urveshi after finishing her dance that day 
Told the God of heaven, Indra
That she perhaps can no longer perform any dance
Owing to agonies of her heart and restlessness of her mind
And her legs were not in tune with her mind to perform
A flawless dance and song by which she had captured the 
Hearts of all Gods and Goddess, what to say of humans on earth

She thought and thought and found that she can only normalize
If she can hear the songs of the boatman 
Singing in full throated ease on earth 
The echo’s of which were hovering in her mind like clouds
And twisting her heart to see that singer sublime

a Snowflake passed this way re write

Fragile is the mind
That has lost a friend
Fragile too is the snowflake
Seeking sanctuary on my window sill
Both are anonymous to the world

Fragile is the dreamer
Who knows the snowflake well?
Pure as an angels tear
Complex as the heavens above

For Within its crystal, there is a mirror
Where footprints lead me down 
A snowy lover’s lane
To that first kiss

Oblivious to winter’s chill
She held my dreams
Warmed my passion
And whispered the words
That only lovers can hear.

And in the virgin snow
I proclaimed to the night
I love you
As the snow melted into tears upon her face

Fragile was the time we were given
And fragile is the youth 
That remembers the girl
That loved him so tender
in the cold of yesterday

Fragile are the Angels
 that dance for love
In snowflake dresses
Swirling their magic
Ever knowing that spring 
Would chase their dance away

Fragile is the life
Searching for answers
Sharing a snowflakes fate
Brothers of nature
Beautiful and Unique

Born to melt away
In the heat of time
For it is an honour to know a life that others did not
A memory born special to me

Fragile too are we who love this life
Whose lives are touched by those we meet
Who gather the things that make us complete
Friends and Snowflake memories
My happiness in this fragile life

I Miss Her

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Well I surely do
I once met a girl out on a dance floor
The feeling I had was so new

She didn't know how to dance
So I showed her how
I still feel in love
Even a year later now

It was unreal
I haven't seen her since
But I picture a world
Where I could be her prince

We would dance again
In a kingdom by the sea
We could be alone
Just her and me

We could always be together
But she will never see
That day I met an angel
And she danced with me

I was hit so hard
By her charm and grace
I miss her so much
I can still see her face

Shall we Dance---Everlasting dance together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surrounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

The Invitation (To JW)

Come dance with me, I hear the band
Of birds and cricket playing
Quadrille, or mento, now take my hand
The earth on love is turning

Come lie with me, the grass is green
Too wet the golden sand
The dew and mist will be our screen
Our garden all the land

Come share my life, and let me love
Your soul as my heart's queen
We will take each joy ... a gift from above
From passions from joy we glean

Come solace me, and i will solace you
We two little morning dove
Let night be a polka dot of stars, and morning blue
Feast of me, and drink my love

Come dance with me, and be my love
Our bodies twain embrace as one
And we entwined as God behove
Will build our castle in the tropic sun.

Wet Dreams

Wet Dreams

WITH HER DOWN CAST EYES, MY SWEET ANGEL LISTENS TO MY PRAYERS
SHE LOOKS PREDISPOSED TO TRANQUILIZE ALL MY CARES
AS I FALL TO SLEEP OVER MY MIND SWEET FASCINATION REIGNS
TO MAKE ME THINK SWEET PARADISE I HAD GAINED
SHE ENTERS MY DREAMS LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT
I BASK IN HER LOVE WITH EXQUISTE DELIGHT
HER EYES ARE THE STARS, LIKE SPARKLING DIAMONDS IN THE NIGHT
HER SOFT KISSES ARE TENDER, AND DRAIN ME OF ALL MY MIGHT
SHE HAS STOLEN MY SOUL, HER LOVE BURNS LIKE FIRE
INFLAMED IS MY HEART, MY PASSION FILLED DESIRE
I EMBRACE HER BEAUTEOUS SPIRIT; A THOUSAND TIMES I AM BLESSED
HER FAIR STATUESQUE BODY I CARINGLY CARESS
MY ANGEL A TOP OF ME -   I CANNOT DENY HER
AS SHE TAKES ME TO HEAVEN-   WE SOAR FOREVER HIGHER
WE FEEL THE THUNDER-  AS OUR BODIES PEAK
A FEELING SO WANTED, -  A NEEDED RELEASE
AN EXPLOSION OF EMOTION,
AND THEN SATISFYING PEACE.

I AWAKE THE NEXT MORN - MY SHEETS SOAKING WET
I REMEMBER MY DREAM,-    HOW COULD I EVER FORGET
I PANICK WHEN I SEE -     SOME UNMENTIONABLE STAINS
A PRACTICE I KNOW MY PARENTS WOULD PREFER I REFRAIN.
FOR ASSUREDLY I TELL YOU, REMEMBERING THIS YOUNG BOYS BLISS
THAT HUNGRYLY I WAIT FOR MY NEXT ANGEL’S KISS.

The Boatman's Song 3/ Many

The Boatman’s Song        3/ Many


Indra was aware that Apsaras Urveshi
Was the incarnation of heavenly beauty 
And her restlessness and impatience can spoil
The very beauty of her body and dance
Which was the pride and embodiment of perfection

He also knew that without Urveshi
Even the heaven would look lifeless, without any beauty
Everyone in heaven had thrown their hearts
To get only one glance of Urveshi’s adorable loving eyes
During her dancing sessions, the junior Gods of Indra used to remain glued
Sometimes forgetting even their breathing

Such was the magic of her beauty, dance and songs
Even Indra often found himself lost in beholding
The flawless figure of her body and her lovely dance forms  
And such was her dancing skills that even Apsaras 
Used to get lost in the sweetness of her voice 
And the thrilling and joy of her skillful dance    

Lord Indra’s realization of Urveshi’s feelings

Indra was thinking, whether to allow her to visit the earth 
To hear the melodies of the boatman or 
Not to allow her, as it could be risky for a woman like Urveshi  

Urveshi may get tempted and may fall in love
With that earthly voiced singer, whose songs
Are echoing beyond the horizons of earth
And have reached even in the sphere of heaven

Indra was aware that Urveshi was the most beautiful  
Among all the Apsaras of heaven and of the entire universe
And if she keep on worrying about the boatman’s songs
At the cost of her dances, joys and pleasures 
It was going to spoil her lavishly bestowed beauty
Which glitters and glow or get pale on a woman
As per the love or longings blows in her heart and reflects on her face

I REMEMBER

I remember as a young man dreaming of falling in love
my dreams were for a special girl made in heaven above
the kind of girl you come by only once in a while
then she walked into my life with her precious smile.


I remember when I first saw her in the middle of the room
next to the dance hall, where we’d dance our love tune
and when we became friends how it was never enough
as I had already fallen in love.


I remember how she smiled when she danced a certain way
and when we became a couple, one September day
I had at last got something in my life so right
I could hold her in my arms, not just in my dreams at night.


I remember when we were married, how it rained and rained all day
but we did not let it spoil our very special day,
I looked back down the aisle, as she came to me dressed in white
and was greeted by her smile, shining through her veil so bright.


I remember how much I loved her, so glad that she was mine,
I remember I gave a promise to love her for all time.
I remember and I will, for no one could love her more
and I’ll hold her in this heart of mine, for now and evermore.

Dance--For the Rest of My Life

As entered into the room
Filled with many people
The music plays
Melodies of my heart

I saw in the distance...
As two by two... taken each by the hand
As they got up to slow dance

So soft and sweet...
Gently moves within feet
As they music plays

As if I seen in a daze
How True Love is
Between two. By two...

As they slow dance 
Across the room
As the music plays

He then lowers down
As she is embraced
Delicately kisses her lips

Enchantment takes place
For Moments in time
Music plays...

As they continue 
To slow dance
Two by two

Such Love in the air
As I watched sitting there
As the music plays...

So beautiful 
Between two..
Couples together

Within the room
As the music plays
God makes a way

For come 
Together in Love
True Harmony
For All
Two by two

Inspiration for All God's Creation
Love between Two..

Can I have this Dance For the Rest of my Life?
Smile

I was inspired by My Lord.. 
and song.. "Can I have this Dance?" Anne Murray

Tango

Moving together
Bodies touching, without any space to breath
Feelings of desire, passion, jealousy
A story told through dancing
He sees her, wants her
She sees him wants him
They want each other
They move together, bodies touching
Feelings of desire corse through their viens
Back and Forth
To music of sexual emotions
The music becomes more intense
Their feelings of desire develop into feelings of passion
Passion for each other
Passion for the music
Passion for the dance
The music changes
So do their feelings 
Jealousy,
Jealousy takes over
They still want to be in each others arms
But can't stand the deceit
She cheated, she betrayed him
The dance comes to an end
The jealousy took over 
He couldn't take it
She falls
The dance is over.

Dance With Me

Turn down the lights
This night our love flows free,
Hold me close
And dance with me.

Candle light glowing
Your scent makes me hungry,
Feeling your warmth
Please dance with me.

My fingers in your hair
The music soft and dreamy,
Your hands upon my hips
Come dance with me.

Your mouth close to my ear
Singing softly right on key,
Words that melt my heart
While you dance with me.

Your lips upon mine
Hearts beating rapidly,
Your body growing hard
As you dance with me.

Our bodies joining
Your love felt so deeply,
Passion exploding
Always dance with me.

Eyes locked together
Our fingers joined tightly,
A love ever lasting
Simply dance with me.

Les Soiree De Paris

Les Soiree De Paris 

I had arrived in Paris to study my art
introduction to Victor Gilbert was where I would start
invited to Les Soiree by host and close friend
a fine white horsed carriage to me he would send 

my dress was the finest a gentleman could wear
tailcoat of black, trimmed silk everywhere
white vest and silk shirt with jeweled buttons would do
black pants with satin stripe from hip to shoe

with top hat of silk and gloves of pure white
I entered the hall such a glorious sight 
walls of gold and sparkling gas light
crystal and brocade danced in delight

I greeted the host and traveled about
Paris's rich and the famous, there was no doubt
sitting demure in a dress of peach lace
face framed in ringlets, her face they did grace

I was suddenly taken by pure surprise
she smiled at me and quickly diverted her eyes
I went to the host for introduction that night
she smiled shyly and rose ,I trembled with fright

I offered my arm, her touch was so slight
we moved to the dance floor, it seemed so right
gliding and moving in pure dancing grace
the smell of sweet rose's, the light of her face

the Vienna Waltz did end much too soon
returning to her seat I thought I might swoon
her eyes did shine the color of green
in that moment I knew she'd be my queen

I paused and offered my best formal bow
formed the words to say here and now
“You are simply the Belle of the Ball my dear.”
kissed her hand my intentions were clear

as even fine evenings must come to an end 
this glorious night I was able to spend
in the finest grandeur of Victorian grace
reliving  the memory of her beautiful face

Universe can be our home
Our own magical retreat

Two celestial bodies
Darling lets take to the sky 
Forget the why, when or how
This dream is for you and I

Gliding upon golden wings
We can dance from star to star
I would travel anyplace 
So I could be where you are

Angel’s dance like fireflies
Through trails of glittering dust
In heaven magical things
Exist for people like us

It seems we have come so far
Seems the limit is the sky
When I think of who you are
Tears of joy I need to cry

Everything is what you are
You are everything to me
Long as eternity last
My soul shall be one with thee

So let’s live on forever
We will each refuse to die
Plant our bodies in the ground
As our spirits take to the sky

A Dream That Came True

A Dream That Came True.

In my mind's eye I had seen her undress a thousand times
 sending hot flashes that exploded with her moaning
 Months before ever summoning the courage to speak to her
 I practiced the words befitting her splendor!

 She had been noticing my adoring glances as she 
 adjusted her skimpy bikini in the bright sun
 Showing just what a man, any man would hope to see
 I moved closer anticipating her charming refusal
 to my shock she answered a quick yes and our date 
 that night was on!

 I asked her to wear something sexy and she replied
 how about I wear no panties?
 My stammering answer made her laugh that laugh
 the one that sent shivers up my spine in anticipation

 It is on! We met at theatre and hardly watched the movie
 for her hands were busier than mine!
 A nice change to feel the heat of a woman so anxious
 I almost wept with joy! What a thrill! She had kept her promise
 No panties!!!
 None under that sexy short skirt that had made the other men 
 openly lust for her charms! I saw and was amazed that this vision of
 sexual beauty was actually with me!
 What happened later that night you can imagine,
 the earth shook, the sky fell and I heard a ringing bell!

 We married two months later and it was pure sex and bliss
 Non stop sex night and day.. Ahh, the memories that last a
 lifetime! 
 Nothing that great can last forever. We burned like the Sun for
 a few years and then it happened..
 The crash!
 My motorcycle hit a tree ,I was rushed to the hospital and woke up 
 three days later to discover it had been only a very vivid daydream!
 My heart broke , I was sorry to have came back to the world! Then, 
 O' yes then in walks a vision so lovely my heart almost stopped

 A new nurse. So hot the paint on the walls started melting.
 Over she floats to my bedside. I sat wide eyed looking like a fool!
 Awestruck with anticipation! She took my hand, took my pulse .

 I fumbled for words, I fought for control. I begged for help to impress
 her!
 Finally, finally I felt power return and I asked her to just pinch me!
 Pinch me! Let me know I am not dreaming again..
 She laughed and pinched my left cheek. The lower one! I felt the earth
 begin to rise. She noticed and laughed,
 LAUGHED THAT LAUGH!!! That laugh!
 That laugh came from those sweet lips. I begged for help and she smiled,
 O' that smile!
 As she turned to leave I asked her to see me again and she said yes!
 I shall return in two hours to give you your bath.. Then winked at me!
 Longest two hours of my life! 
 Then I woke up still laying beside my crashed motorcycle!
 With a broken leg and shattered dream!!! 
 Fate can be so cruel.....
 So damn cruel...... Then the door opened and I hear her say with a 
 smile. Time for your bath darling !!! Its late and I'll block this door!
 Then she removed her clothes. Crap, dreaming again I thought...
 And that is how I met my first wife. Yes she was a dream!!
 Something that great never lasts, never lasts....

Dedicated to my first wife.... and some of it is even true!!! 
Found this last week while rummaging around in some old files I had...

Love's dance

Sweep[ me off my feet
Walk me to the dance floor
Slide your hands on my arms
Shake me to my very core
Twirl me out bring me in
Hold me from the back
As we sway and we groove
Passion neither of us lack
Dip me so smoothly
As you kiss my neck
Pull me back up
My heart i must check
I crave you so much
Even from our very first glance
Fall into forever with me
As we indulge in love's dance

Music

Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
 

I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
 

I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
 

I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.

THIS MUST BE LOVE

I remember a time I saw you smile
And I stopped and looked
Even stared for awhile
Cause you just have that way with me
Especially when there's a band
I hate to admit, but it's true 
I'm putty in your hands

So let's hit the floor and dance away
When we are all done 
Now will be yesterday
And ole Frank would be real proud
Girl, my feet are off the ground
This must be love, yeah.. It's love
'Cause my head is in the clouds
I'm in the clouds...
This must be love, yeah.. It's love!

The witches winds are blowing

                  
                                               
 The Santa Ana's are here, and the moon is clear. 
There is a mystic in the air that whispers in my ear.
  Is this a peaceful feeling or does it carry fear ? 

What is the passion and hot fragrence of orange blossom that is pulling me a different way , as if this power has been sent only by a Witch of the finest of White Magic, only to calm the Blue Soul I have known my whole life.


 I feel a passion that is running through my Veins like the  power of water itself .
 
                               
As if the Moon itself were instructed to warm the air that is blowing . It is not a new moon , it is not a old moon , it is a moon that appears only in ones lifetime to gaze at .

 By seeing and feeling the very power of this Moon you will dance your way to Heaven with happiness of what is yet to come.
 
The Stars around this Moon are unique as if they take the presence of every loved one you and I have lost . 

The Witches winds with the warm glowing of the moon, as if I had never met you before , are blowing with the frangerence of Orange Blossom or Magnolia , from a distant past of The South.
 
As if I know we have been together once before , a Moon such as this . In a peaceful , lustful state of Bliss.
 

 There is something coming .. is it something I have always known or wanted ?

 What is yet to be known is as intoxicating as the Santa anas that are running through my body.
 As if i have been struck by the power of light , as the powerful moon I gaze at in the Night.
It is piercing my soul with it's only Truth, 
                                         By;
                                            Shanity Rain

                  In great respect of the band I grew up listening to
                       as sure as Mom passed down Saturday Chores 
                      for I had been chosen to scrub bathroom floors `

                    Yet a familiar sound would bring me to keep scrubbing
                       The red album, The blue album , The White album 
                        Then .. Abbey Road , always remembering the sad look on

                    the many sad lonely tears , secret tears , secret fears 
                    For Maxwell's Hammer was a real one . It wanted silence

                    Going back ..remembering when John Lennon died 
                      I was in Arkansas saddened with the world .
                      Then seeing his face saying " Drag isn't it " 
                      No .. this was not my hero in music and song .

                      he was a stand in hired William , he filled his shoes

The Beach of Promises

The Beach of Promises


1.


Fingers entwined, barely touching,
turquoise waters teasing your dancing toes,

strolling along that serene deserted beach,
our promised dreams within aching reach.


2.


Hands clasped, holding on,
sea-breezes tickling the nape of your neck,

walking together, alone, vowing to never breach,
the dreams dreamed on that faraway velvet beach.


3.


Hands in my pockets, alone,
traces of you linger, teasing,

lost in my scribbles, your memory fading out of reach,

my thoughts ablaze, now and then,
catching a whiff of your fragrance,

wafting through alleyways of nostalgia,
your hand in mine on our pristine beach.

Carrying romance all the way








Carrying romance all the way
falling in love time and again,
a romantic heart you may say
dancing always in love rain!

Falling in love time and again
one way love let them be,
dancing always in love rain
hold no umbrella above me!

One way love let them be
only the rain should be pure,
hold no umbrella above me
she will come and dance sure!

only the rain should be pure
just to forget all the pain,
she will come and dance sure
join me in new love rain!

Just to forget all the pain
you can come and feel the bliss,
join me in new love rain
dancing with you is my wish!

You can come and feel the bliss
a romantic heart you may say,
dancing with you is my wish
carrying romance all the way!

Muse

Dusk, the end of day, the soften bed of moonlight,
brings wild thoughts within its sultry shadows musing.
Belle Lune, fair damsel, bringing love and fright,
release my tongue-tied self, please allow my crooning.

Troubadours have strung the onyx sky with comet
tails glittering white, and bowed each string to unite 
the pensive poet's heart and that of his fair coquette;
see them sway, a dance displayed amour in the moonlight.

Shadows deepen, have they left, thought hard, grown contrite
or has the moon, amused, drawn shadows 'round as gowns?
Will he rise at dawn, curtains drawn, write of the night?
The maid, the moon, the well so deep, the heat profound

calls to him in memory, now cooled by harsh light.
For now, there is, but the empty page of daylight.

DANCE

A young novice in a new town
where He didn't know a soul
His head was spinning so fast
he just wanted to do his role

Oh.. it's hard to be the rookie
where every single thing is new
Stepped outside the boundaries 
'cause he really didn't have a clue

He was living for the weekend
time to finally relax and unwind
Jumping off the conveyer belt
where he'd been running blind

Now he's off to the county dance
feels like the whole town is there
But on this turf he's comfortable
and pretty girls are everywhere

Not a shy bone is in his body
one by one he takes their hand
Feels like Heaven in this moment
he's loving this thumping band

You talk about total cluelessness
he thought the night was going well
One boy didn't like his girl chasing 
now his eye is starting to swell

He never thought about social politics
wow, was that a huge mistake
Be careful how you compliment
or next bones he might just break

Friend, when your new in the city
but careful who you romance
Those pretty girls might be taken
and not just by your dance!

*The Town is Poetry Soup.  The Dance is the exchange of comments.  The black eye was because the new writer didn't know all the politics going on here.  More details.. You'll have to read between the lines :)

A Folk Song from India

BACKGROUND DETAILS ARE GIVEN ON MY BLOG POSTED TODAY
'Folk Songs Themes Are Same In Every Language'

A Folk Song from India

O my Sakhi,* bring the Dholak*,      we would sing a song,
O friend, my love is coming,	                 from a far-off city,
While bringing the Dholak,*         bring also the   Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and        we would dance  together.


The Jhoola*  is ready,		       on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak, 	we would swing high touching the sky,
O my friend, bring the Dholak*,  we would sing a song together,
O Sakhi* my love is coming,	                         from a far-off city,


O my friend push the swing,                            so high in the sky,
I may see my Sasuma*,                  leaving the house for a while,
The swing is ready,			      on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak,    we would swing high touching the sky,


O my friend please push the swing,                  so high in the sky,
That I may see, my Nanda,*     also leaving the house for a while,
O Sakhi,  please, increase the swinging,            so high in the sky,
That I may see my Dever* also,      leaving the house for a  while.

O my friend increase the swinging,                     so high in the air,
That I may see my Sasur*too, have to leave the house for a while, 
O my dear Sakhi,* please increase the swinging, so high this time,
That I may see the face of my love,        coming after a long while.

O my friend,            please push the swing   in such a way this time,
That my love may come to me,                     searching his dear wife. 
Then Sakhi increase the beat and sound of the Dholak,   so much so,
That everyone may feel that   we are singing the  song in full swing,
When you bring the Dholak,*                      bring also the Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and                        we would dance   together.

Dance of Love

They swayed together in the dance of love
strangers that were captured by a hot glance
watched with joyfulness by a white dove

Hand in hand they strolled around the cove
promised that  they would return to this place
they swayed together in the dance of love

walking through the glen filled with foxglove
then tenderly he led her to his place
watched with joyfulness by a white dove

They stood talking, air full of scent of clove
the room was lit by candles and fireplace
they swayed together in the dance of love

Time passed soon they moved to the staircase
he helped her climb up to the bed space
watched with joyfulness by a white dove

They were married in a white olive grove
spending their honeymoon at his birthplace
they swayed together in the dance of love
watched with joyfulness by a white dove

One dance

baby let's forget about all the fights
just hold hands and let me hold yours
Look at my eyes and see the truth
Let's make it our night tonight

Baby let's dance along with the music playing
Let's dance One great dance , Let me feel your steps
With the music loud, just put your lips next to my ear
Hold me tight , let me hear the sweet words you are saying

I'm just so over fighting with you
Just put all the problems aside
Tell me that I'm all what you want right now
I will tell you what you want me to

Anger, frustration, jealousy and stress
They all a sign of mistrust
So, stop playing with my head
My heart got enough of your mess

Let's not talk about us tonight
Let's talk about love and romance
Just hold me tighter than ever
I don't care who is wrong or right

When the Earth was in danger 1of 8


Prelude

This story is based partly on the Indian mythology and partly on my imagination.
The theme is anger, how it can destroy even the entire Earth and if controlled,
how it converts into a creative energy. The incident is from the mythology of 
Hindus, which speaks, how Shiva the supreme God of Hindus started 
one day his Tandava Nritya * or the Dance of Destruction……………..What was 
the cause of this anger would be explained in the concluding part of this story. 


When the Universe was in danger   1 of 4 

The cascading spring of poetry or anger, start flowing,
When pain got absorbed, in one’s mind and heart,
And the agonies of   heart, show their somber face,
When they dance on the lips, while words take shapes.01

The utterance becomes a melody or a loud voice of thunder,
Depending upon the depths, of pain and piercing thorns,
When tears start rolling from eyes, without stopping for a while,
Like the streams which keep flowing,   without ever stopping.  

												
When the waves of pains, strike high touching the air and,
The separation from love splashes against the sky,
It takes shape as a pain of heart, and goes-up like high waves or, 
It burst like heated lava, coming from a Volcano’s chest.    03

Suppressed pain strikes the rocks, when they comes on its way,
The sea of turmoil creates a fearful noise,   while hitting the rocks,
The anger then burst, like the sea surf covering the mighty rocks,
To engulf everything coming, before the raging mind and heart. 04

Considering the end to save the lives, the earth started shouting loudly,
As if the Tandava Nritya*, had started to engulf the earth,
O Please Stop, You are the God of creation & destruction too,
Have mercy, O Shiva*, O Please stop, your Tandava Nitrya,*
Or else the whole earth would forever come to a halt.   05

Clarifications:

Shiva* is the supreme God of Hindus, who is also the source of all creations and
distractions. Shiva’s Tandava is a vigorous dance that is the source of the cycle of
creation, preservation and dissolution. Tandava depicts his violent nature as the
destroyer of the universe.

*Tandava Nritya* means Dance of destruction

Penguin's Dream


Penguin's  Dream 

The Penguins were busy,
In their joyous dance,
Like teenagers, who get lost,
In their first love and talks. 01

Love was shining brightly,
In their lustrous lovely eyes,
And the Joy of love was splashing,
In every steps of their dance. 02

Amazed by their beauty in grace,
I felt a rhythm of joy in their mood,
As if,  I too was in tune with them,
With a pinch of love, sprouting in me. 03

Age, in those beautiful moments,
Had no longer remain a barrier for me,
Waves of joy we're touching the sky, and
My mind was in dance with those Penguins. 04

Those beautiful birds were moving like Kings & Queens,
Without fearing for yesterday and tomorrows,
Penguins were looking towards their soul mates with love,
Enjoying completely the moments, they were breathing. 05

They all were still in muttering mood,
In their joyful dance of love and singing,
Penguins continued their alluring dance,
Away, quite far away from me. 06

Suddenly a big cold splash gave me a jolt,
And I found, I was only dreaming Penguins,
Unknowingly I too was floating on waves,
With some of my early age Penguin dreams. 07

Cowgirl Hat Song on CD

She has a cowgirl hat and a set of spurs,
And sometimes she's as gentle as a cat that purrs,
Imagine that....she's my way with words,
And her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,

Yea! she's the cats meow...can make a racehorse nicker,
Make a wolf pack howl...when our hearts are gettin' quicker,
When we go downtown to dance and drink some liquor,
We get unwound..meet friends...the mood gets thicker,

Imagine that  and also this,
I can't resist her country cowgirl kiss,
And that is that and this is this,
She can't resist this country cowboys kiss,

Yea! she's the cats meow....can make a racehorse nicker,
Make a wolf pack howl...when our hearts are gettin' quicker,
When we go downtown to dance and drink some liquor,
We enjoy the sounds of those drums and guitar pickers.

And that is that...along with this,
I can't resist her country cowgirl kiss,
Imagine that...she's my way with words..
Yea! her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,
Yea! her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,
My baby has a cowgirl hat......Imagine that!!

Rejuvenation

Fling the doors open 
And let out the stagnant air 
Open the board up windows 
It’s time to breath fresh air.

Sweep out the dirty corners 
And prepare for a powerful rejuvenation
Gather the dust in a bundle, 
Empty it in the Pacific Ocean
Then dip four times in the Atlantic Ocean.

Take a stroll along the corridors
Look your enemies in their eyes and
Greet them with a victory smile
Salute them with your mystical love 
And set ablaze their self-inflected flame

There is no doubt about this
You will go down as one of the bravest 
Solomon the wisest you the greatest
And victorious one

Sound it on the mountain top
Across the rippling desserts
Walk through the market places
The inner-cities, burnt out villages
Busy streets and crowded towns

Visit the little old lady in the tattered house
Located on the deserted side of town 
Shower her with hopeful words 
Your presence alone will embrace 
And nurture her weary soul

Make your way to the orphanage,
Wounded warriors
and the struggling ones
A simple touch with your powerful hands
Will answer the prayer of the weeping ones.

Go to the schools and colleges 
With words of comfort and love
Stop over places where you are not welcome 
And radiate them with persuasive sentiments.
All some people need is a  can of beer,
a cup of hot chocolate or good cheers .

Disperse the spirit of hope,
Perseverance and good expectation
And when night comes
Walk in the streets and sing 
Sing with timbrels and cheerful songs
You are an inspirational icon for everyone.

Your rhetoric’s are strong, use it to move along.
Use what works  best for you
Negotiations or forgiveness
And climb straight to the mountain top
With a hammer, a sledge or a cable car
Ropes and boots or just the magical you

Silence the poisonous networks
Give them something to talk about
Lift up your injured wings and start to sing
Join with the throng of angels in the grand jubilee
You are strong and ready to fly again.
Tarry no longer because you have won

Raise your banner 
And wave it high in the sky 
You have just defeated your enemies 
With compelling love
And your gigantic wings.

                                                 ©2013 Christine Phillips

Christmas Teddy Bear, On CD

Darling, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a song and dance to share,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a warm and listening ear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, the charm of Christmas cheer,

Yes, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, in tender loving care,
Some hugs and kisses between us, a song and dance to share,
Some hugs and kisses between us, as I hold you near,

For love to be with us, throughout our Christmas years,
Darling, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, the charm of Christmas cheer,
Some hugs and kisses between us, the warmth of Christmas dear,

Enduring love to be with us, throughout our Christmas years,
Darling, what I want for Christmas, is you to be my teddy bear,
Some hugs and kisses between us, some hugs and kisses between us,
Some hugs and kisses between us, "Won't you be my teddy bear!!"

If i had only one day to live

Oh what a dreadful day would it be,
to know that i had only one day to live.
What will i do? i think,
just one day to say and do,
just one day to ask and forgive.

Would i go to the ones i hurt..?
for love and forgiveness.
It would lighten my burden to death,
as going to hell is not my business.

Or would i be with the ones i love...?
to gather all their love in my heart.
Yes! i'll gather all the memories,
but wait.....won't it be difficult for me to depart?

Will i spend time in helping the needy...?
as my whole life i wanted to,
and to give them all that i can,
at least to listen a last "thankyou"

Will i dance in the rain for the last time?
will i swing just for the last time?
will i dance on my favorite song at least once?
or will i eat my favorite chocolate the last time?
Will i meet my friends who made my world a better place?
or meet my lovely teachers who gave my career a fine base?
Will i sleep on my mothers lap for the last time?
or fight with my sister for all that was mine?
Will i fight with my dad for a ride on his bike?
or would i eat all that i like?
Will i cuddle with my puppy for last time sake
or meet my collegues to have all the fun we used to  make
Will i tell my husband how much i love him?
or tell him that my heart was governed by his whim.

(pause for a while)

No, instead i would pray,
pray to god yet for another day.
Dear lord spare my life a day more,
there are things that i still need to explore.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW

(Guy)
I know that touching you seems so unreachable
Yet every night I find.. hope in the moonlight
The thought of being together, it just feels so right
Never want for you to be.. out of my sight
I'd give anything, if we could be more than friends
With a love that's unending.. let's let love begin
You've stolen my heart, cupid's arrow always wins

(Girl)
I know these feelings that you feel, I know they're real
And if they were completely mine.. I'd be fine
But we are best friends, and my love's not blind
So although I'm so flattered, it's not our time
I'd give anything, if being best friends was enough
Knowing your longing.. It sure makes things rough
But darling I do love you, you've got the right stuff

(Both)
If the love we feel was the same for you and me
It would be so incredible, it would be ecstasy
We'd soar over mountains.. ride the seven seas
We'd dance till morning, we'd love to eternity
But our love is different, in the intensity of our heart
You want all of me.. While I want only a part
It's not worth our friendship, can't take that chance
Is it wise to risk it all, for one shot at sweet romance

(Guy)
You don't see it now but you are worth my wait
So I'll go on in longing, wanting for my song
The thought of being together.. doesn't feel wrong
Chasing dreams in the night sky, hope it won't be long
So I'll live with the illusion.. Someday you'll love me
Until you get star struck, and suddenly you see
The deepest kind of love.. Is the kind for you and me

(Girl) 
Oh, all your words are tied with beauty and grace
I wonder are you.. inspired from Heaven above 
And sometimes honestly I feel I might, be falling in love
Yeah, what if we were meant to be.. Hand in glove
These thoughts are so dangerous, got to let them go
Your longing, wanting desires.. I have to say no
Still there's something inside of me, I just want to know


(Both)
If the love we feel was the same for you and me
It would be so incredible, it would be ecstasy
We'd soar over mountains.. ride the seven seas
We'd dance till morning, we'd love to eternity
Is our love different, in the intensity of our heart
You want all of me.. Can we really be a part
It's not worth our friendship, can't take that chance
Or should we risk it all, for one shot at sweet romance

Do You Remember

Was it really as you remember?
Was it as sweet as you recall?
What was the other’s name?
Do you remember them at all?

Do you remember where you were,
The season or the time of day?
Do you remember how it made you feel
And what next you had to say?

Had you practiced on your hand?
Did you do it right or almost miss?
How often do you think of it…

Your very first Hollywood kiss?

After The storm


(Pizza-Transferred)

After the storm, she received her order of pepperoni-mushroom,
(it was a special delivery by her favorite pizza-man),

well baked over coals, on an oven-surface of tiled macadam,
covered with tons of smoked fresh Mozzarella, imported from Bhutan!
.
The pizza-man, (who outfaced the Storm in a morello-burgundy Chevrolet),
awaited patiently outside her house, lifting weights;

inside, she was chatting with her ballet tutor, while a bouquet
of rare rose blooms he imported for her, from Bering Straits.
.
The flowers arrived in a silver-gold 'enveloppant',
thence, très elegant, rang her bell, dancing in front of her door,

wearing a pistachio Diesel sweat-shirt and Compagnie Canedienne pants,
performing jumping sommersolts; best part of his acrobatic galore.
.
She opened her mouth in awe! His daring leg's step-arabesque
was a provocation; thus, she responded with a tread-chasse,

- and then, both slid on ice dancing in a theater burlesque
that their mind created following the notes of a distant jazzy brass.
.
In harmony performed jump combinations, 'et sur la tiers',
with a rose in her hair, she started eating a tasteful slice of the pizza,

while he lifted her over his head, with a 'reverse',
(- fact is, right after her last 'lutz-jump' fall, she suffered amnesia).
.
Trying to hold her, he gallantly bumped his head on a fender,
and while listening to numerous chirping yellow birds,

decided that she was ancient Penelope and he, a contender,
who fought with bravery to conquer her heart she kept undeterred.
.
Dancing, they swayed behind the hill, and gliding on a vast plain,
he noticed that they were Pizza-Transferred through time,

she confessed that her granny was from Aquitaine,
thenceforth in incandescence they ice skated until Springtime.

Trip Twist

In the void, sipping the zoid,
with mental properties of tripping on the spiral.
Falling down the tail of lions, awkwardly spinning.
With upside down tunnel vision leaking through.

Solidifying all matter that matters,
melting into the walls of your brain.
It tickles all the raindrops dripping in your eyes,
satisfying your desire of a synchronized pattern.

Bleeding purple from the rainbow,
and turning into swirls of diamonds.
Slipping exuberantly beside you; driving you wild.
Where the shadows stop the spirited scream.

Devour yourself into the omniscient grip. 
Icy cold finger tips scratch the surface of your divinity,
bringing you closer to the God who whispered in your unborn ear,
situated in your flesh from birth to death.

It embeds itself in the pupil of your eye,
dancing with your spirit and licking your soul.
Black shapes of madness wrapped in chaos and euphoria.
Twinkling and blinking dust of a cloud. 

Haze filled skies and blood filled smoke raining from the clouds.
Envisions of clowns and demons laughing at our demise.
Chilling sensations of sickening mannerisms,
mechanisms and mechanics sought out to destroy the tiny creatures.

These creatures running crazy into acceptance of demise.
Deprived of life, scared of death but giving into it's taste.
Taste buds quiver as the taste grows sweeter.
Death, oh death, tell everyone who you really are...

Too long have you been hidden in the shadows you cast, 
too long have we rendered your pain.
The world grows sicker as the hairs in my head grey. 
I'll never surrender as demons always circle.

Today, begins a new day of our fight.
And I have a good feeling about this day. 
Onward, we have united our minds and gathered ourselves within. 
Always ready for we accept our fear. 

We accept our hate and everything in between.
Accept it all for what it really is. 
No amount of doubts will over throw us. 
Onward, to peace.

He Likes Ugly Girls

Baby, I see you starin' at him,
But you ought to give me whirl;
'Cause he's a handsome hunk,
But when he gets drunk...
Baby, he likes ugly girls.

Yeah, he still lives with his Momma
Even tho' he's 33.
She starches and irons his jeans and shirts,
And he brings home new recipes.

She's told him he's good lookin',
And there's no doubt it's true;
But when he takes home a pretty woman,
Momma says, "Son, she won't be true."

She says, "Son, if you want good lovin',
A plain and homely gal will provide.
She'll treat you right, mornin' and night;
And keep you satisfied."

So baby, you can stare at him, 
But you ought to give me a whirl;
'Cause he's a handsome hunk, 
But when he gets drunk....
Baby, he likes ugly girls.

You don't stand a chance.
That boy loves his Momma.

Yeah, he goes for ugly girls.

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Damn You, Eve

Mourn my loss of innocence; the Queen of 
Love, and I her prince. Dance, we dance, all 
the way to Heaven- born of grief, and the 
things I have written...And dare I ask, or 
merely inquire, on who doth Love me, and who 
is a liar? Just say my name, old curse of 
shame, cloaked in dark, and murky colors 
No skies to fly, no seas to sail, no land on 
which to keep my Lovers
All too silent, this lonely night;
No choice to choose, no grounds to fight 
These pleading words, and Fools in herds-
marching to the Ends of the Earth 
People I loath, and you were told: I do wish 
Eve hadn't given birth...

Goodnight my Fair Maiden

Goodnight my Fair Maiden,
I shall see you once again.
In the year of our Lord,
At the gloomy dawn of Mankind.
As the Red Sun reaches over the treeline,
Far in the East.
I shall see you again.

Don't fear our love,
For my love for you is eternal.
Too see this eternal love
I have for you,
It is hard to feel and very diffcult to see.

When you wake the next morning
and escape your long night of slumber
and your surrealist life,
being played in a cloud of imagination.
You'll soon come to reality 
and find me there.
Knocking upon your chamber door.

Come now!
Get dressed in your evening, silk dress.
and let us go dance under the stars,
till the moon falls to the West and the Sun rises in the East.
Oh, how you are a lovely dancer and how the twilight shines bright
along you shinny and silk laced hair.

And your hair my sweet and fair maiden,
oh, how I love to see it bounce with life
when you twirl and dance into my arms.

You are beautiful and I wish I couldn't leave you,
but as the day turns to night, I have to leave.
I wish I could take you on a long walk through the parks
and courtyards, and walk along the sprinkled streets of the cities filled with life.
Pick you a beautiful bouquet of roses from the gardens of beauty and give them to you
with surprise.

I love you so much
My love for you is indeed hard to tell to you,
but I can show you.
Tomorrow though, for tonight I must say...
Goodnight my Fair Maiden.
For tomorrow you'll be in my arms once again.

Goodnight my Fair Maiden
I shall leave you with a kiss that shall last a lifetime.

She Walked with Grace

She walked with grace through grassy  meadows
pausing to smell the sensual fragrance
watching the rabbits dart down their barrows
their white tails flashing creating a drama  

Azure  skies blazing, making perfect the day
she laid in the grass. dreaming of her lover
handsome and very tall he was her mainstay
he set her alight making everything brighter

She remembered the way they  spun around
as they danced  together through the night  
gay garlands hanging  down they were spell bound
silhouetted  in the dazzling firelight

That perfect night when all the world stood still
their last dance that night was a quadrille

You've got to love your life

You’ve got to love your life.

I’m drifting through my life
As I climb those rocky trails
The only place I want to be is now
The Spring comes, me just sitting here
As the grass grows by itself
I never did want too much, anyhow.

Can’t worry about your burdens
One has to travel on
The past can’t do no damage, it be gone
And the future, well there’s no one knows
No matter what they do
You cannot stop those hands from moving on.

You’ve got to love your life
That’s the only way to go
There ain’t no going back to what’s been done
Cause life was made for loving
The song you sing is yours
You’re a one off soul, you be the only one.

You have to live your story
No matter where it goes
No matter what the hard knocks you might gain
The road might lead to nowhere
Yet dance it anyhow
When life stand still, then it be lived in vain.

Work

Work.
Toil.
The pain I put in the ground.
For such a precious thing.
Corn. 
The family enjoys their meal.
They plant their leftover kernels.
And wait for me to tend to them.
Work. 
An endless cycle in which happiness is born.

Always a Dream

Always a Dream

A little fairy princess one day sits resting on a most beautiful sunflower,
And magically she begins stretching her wings for anticipatory flight
While capturing a vision assortment of most bright flying colors, 
Of one gentle and soothing rainbow promise—a shining and a light to delight;
As the ground begins to tremble and crumble underneath her tiny feet,
She takes flight on her splendid little wings—quite magnificent to behold
Through the colors of mist and the veil of magic she sees a bright sparkling shine, 
And then all becomes clear—she sees gold, and even more gold on the horizon
Radiantly gleaming in front of her very eyes and charming her senses entire.

Then a most curious little green man with curved ears pointing heavenwards 
And possessing remarkably strange and yet soft mesmerizing green eyes, 
Presents himself both kindly and boldly to the little fairy princess in person; 
He jumps right in the pot alongside her dancing a jig to his heart's content,
And the princess shines all colors of love and warmth over him under the mist 
Of a most dazzling and enchanting dream to behold, know, and cherish.

With this the little green man reveals his true nature to his new found princess,
And with a most proud alacrity bearing a quaint princely nature, he declares:
 
“Me Darlin’ little princess so near and so dear to Me own little heart,”
“You must know I’m your Leprechaun always obedient from this very start,”
“At this moment most precious Me knows you’ve captured Me little heart,”
“And with this you’ve captured too Me overflown’ Pot of Gold now in part,”
“With Me undying love and devotion to you always carried in Me little heart.”

With this the Leprechaun and his little fairy princess danced a mystical old
Irish jig together while singin’ and laughin’ both so gently and contentedly;
All the while his soft green eyes and her sensual eyes azure locked in a 
Most romantic gaze and affection when they began kissing one another, 
And brushing inside and both sharing heartfelt fluttering emotions and a
Swelling with a deep beauty and a most passionate love in Heaven born.

With the genuine passion-felt affection and the romantic kisses exchanged,
The Leprechaun and his little fairy princess began to transform themselves
Right before each other’s very eyes, and Behold!!—in a quick moment, the
Leprechaun became a most handsome and sweet loving young prince, and 
His little fairy princess, in a flash of blinding light, lost her wings and changed 
Into a most radiant and quite beautiful young princess with long-flowing 
Beautiful black hair, and a very lovely smile as resplendent and sweet as any
Angel in Heaven above.

Now the handsome young prince and his beautiful young princess were an 
Elegant and most wonderful couple to behold and cherish—kind, smiling, and 
Deeply in love.
 
The young prince with his Irish blessings began sparklin’ and sprinklin’ star dust 
All over his young princess and they both lived happily ever after with pronounced
Passion and love, emotion and devotion, kindness and charity, vision and purpose, 
Forever to their end on Earth and later by the Lord God himself in Heaven.

carousel in roundel


The carousel round goes to circle feasts
The scent of dusk is solitude's  primrose
- beloved her stare with light shall fade in mists
- the carousel round goes. 

And the enfolding of the silence slows
forsooth advances her response sole kissed
betimes the corteges of night depose.

Disporting round trajectories persist
their merriment of altered times disclose;
- Two loving forms in raindrops dance amidst,
- the carousel round goes.

At this moment

At this moment means a lot for me

The moment when I saw your face

My heart felt silent and your words felt great to me

I felt that love rules the world and not only that moment

You showed me what real love could do to keep me happy

and you fulfilled by dreams with everything that I have today

From this moment I felt you are mine

and I can promise anything to make you happy with my love

When you wrap me in your arms, never felt alone

and you made me to understand the value of love

Like the moon dance between the clouds and the sky

I dance between your heart and soul with my emotions

When the nights became like a romantic world to me

then I felt my moment with you like my dream come true

From that moment your image is deepen in my heart

and want to clutch you in place where you feel enlightened

Like an ocean wave your kisses wet my lips every time

while my foot prints leave mark in the sand with shyness

From this moment there is no one else I could see

other than our two hearts together and love that sets free

These are the moment I want to be with you for ever

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

<        this poem is not about what is written, but what is not written
          like the smile upon her face that looks nil and somewhat smitten

          and lochs of hair hanging instead of with bows and lace
          tell me my angelic angel have you fallen from God's good grace

          has your garments of thread gone out of time
          has your dance with the butterflies gotten out of rhyme

         have you been cast from your lovers heart
         or are you just looking to start over with brand new start

         has clouds silver lining rained upon your dreams
         has leafs dance gone frozen in crystal streams


         time stands still amidst wondering thoughts
         time stands still when lovers cant be sought

Save

Will you save that last dance for me
To dance barefoot in eternity
To hold you close to my chest
And feel that ever beating breast

Fill these arms in moonlights glow
Cheek to cheek and whispers flow
Fill my head with your fragrance
And with my heart to ever dance

Let us glide this floor of love 
Kissed by moon and stars above
Let your head on my shoulder rest
Hark the words of love confessed

Gaze these eyes filled with fire
One step, two steps to desire
Take the sweetness of my kiss
Spend our dance in total bliss 

Let this dance go on forever
In harmony and always together
Let our nights be rose and wine
Forever joined as hearts entwine
Pray save that last dance for me
For in love with you, I'll always be

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm

years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

Thine Love And Mine

Art thou my one true love?
Then let our hearts entwine;
allow our souls to dance at will
and I shall call thee mine.

I claim thee as my only one,
thou knowest this is sure,
my heart hath finally found a home,
my love for thee is pure.

Tell me dost thy heart exist
to beat with mine forever,
and through the years that yet to cometh
will our souls still dance together?

Will our lips still grace a kiss
when age hath left its mark,
and will thy love still hold a flame
like a candle in the dark?

When time dost sap our vital force
thy love I'll still behold,
for I shall seeth in thine eyes
a love still young and bold.

FOOTLOOSE

Rock and roll that's my play
Who wants to stay and sway
Don't care if you're footloose
Any music we'll dance and choose
Smiles; grooving fun that we'll display

I Live On Love

My pockets are empty    The cupboards are bare    No problem for me    Never give it a care    No need for food    No use for money    No dark clouds    For me always sunny    Our first moment    Was a sudden glance    From across the room    I asked you to dance    We danced on and on    All through the night    In my arms    Till the morning light    Been dreaming of you    All my life    MY destiny, My fate, My love    Will you be my wife    Sorry  I have a man    Waiting for me    You and I    Were not meant to be    For the last ten years Of my life    Can`t change the fact    I`m his wife    Her eyes said yes    A voice said no    It`s getting late    I have to go    Been waiting for her    A thousand years     Left my arms Covered with tears    Our night together     Changed my life    No other woman    Will ever be my wife    I look for you    Wherever I go    The woman I love    That told me no    I`m a fool in love    A victim of fate    Our dance together    Ten years too late    All the lonely hearts    Cry out to me    Never love a woman    That was not meant to be    Have not danced    Since that night    Only with you    Does everything feel right    I`ve prayed to God    A voice on deaf ears    No answer to my pleas    Been waiting for years    Alone for a lifetime    My choice to be    Hoping one day    It would be you with me    The world has passed me bye    I`m at the end of my life    Never will I be able to say    Thank you for being my wife     I`m a fool in love    A victim of fate    Our dance together     A lifetime too late

Kitty Purrfect and Armadilly Billy

Miss Kitty Purrfect entered our Troll community singing on a cold winter breeze.
Her tortoise mount ShowGal was white, and danced with every note and key.
Her voice rang out in purity as she sang to the moon, of her great love, yet to be.
Spanish attire, turning a saucy ankle, her flirting brought the Trolls to their knees! 

Mesmerized and drawn to her, the Trolls proclaimed she’d fit nicely at the lake.
But still, she sought her true love nightly in the wind, as hearts began to break.
The air was magical, sending her songs traveling outward, drawing the unaware.
Strangers arrived nightly, to plight their troth, sojourners caught within her snare.

But none won Miss Kitty Purrfect, not even the Trolls for long, held her awe.
Suddenly, a tornado hit town, and out of the middle came the one, to win her paw…
Armadilly Billy The Slingshot Kidster, had ridden his tortise, Jalope, back into town.
Staring deep into her eyes, waltzing her around; he captivated her heart, melting it down.

A better ladies man there never was, his attention never wavered, neither did hers.
Match for match, point for point, his spurs, her castanets added as the dance stirred.
That night, as the tornado had come in, it went out again, taking both in true love, y’all.
Now, don’t feel lost, and don’t feel low: there’s a true love waiting somewhere for all.

Even the Trolls know this is true, yes there’s one for me, and there’s one for you.
So raise your hands, and dance your dance, then sing your songs for true romance.
Wherever Miss Kitty and Armidilly Billy go, you know they’ll be, waiting for you.
The magic of song, is like the magic of the heart, once found, they’ll never be apart.

The winds of change drew them to love, now a wish: you find yours, I send in the air. 
Never fret, and never despair… this wish will always find you, somewhere out there.

Warm Romantic Spanish Summers Night

A white walled Spanish villa
over looking a blue Mediterranean rolling sea
the fragrance of pink cherry blossom
and olive groves fill the warm night air
as waves of calm and tranquillity sweep over me.

Red roses and bottle of wine upon a table 
by the pool candle flames flicker and dance
in a calm caressing breeze
Soft gentle guitar music
charge the air with romance.

With a dark haired señorita in a red elegant dress
and hair styled to impress
we talk and laugh exchanging flirting glances through the night
then dance under the stars slowly holding each other tight
Kisses lead to caresses 
as we hold each others heart within our welcoming hands
For the night is made for love
She is my woman
and I her man.

Dance With Me

Pick up your feet and dance with me
And we'll twirl our way through reality,
Beyond mists of doubt and despair
Through shining light so righteous and fair,
Over peaks of hardship and pain
Into lush valleys where joy rains.

Pick up your feet and dance with me
And we'll swirl the depths of churning seas,
We'll waltz across deserts of shifting sands
And groove our way through jungle lands,
We'll dip and swoon under an argent moon
Stepping in time, to a heartfelt tune.

We'll laugh and play the rest of our days
Keeping alive the music that lives inside.

My Love Story

  We pledged brother and sister organizations that spring.  We saw each other 
frequently at fraternity/sorority functions, and, in the cafeteria, of course.  She 
dated a friend of mine and I watched from the sidelines, hoping for another 
chance to make a play for her heart.  Then while dining and socializing one 
evening, a senior member of the fraternity requested that we dance together in 
the cafeteria!  I know it sounds like an odd request for the cafeteria, but Hatchet 
was known for trying to humiliate pledges and didn’t really care about others who 
were trying to dine and return to their studies.  For me, it was the greatest dance 
of my life!  Hatchet and about a dozen cronies crooned ‘Frauline’, and I was 
dancing with Vicki. And, for that dance, she was “my pretty frauline”.  I felt like 
Bobby Helms had written that song just for me; for us! 

  I held her close and asked,” Do you know how to turn?”

  “No,” she replied.

  “Well, you’re fixin’ to learn!”  And I felt like I’d been fooled as we successfully 
made a full turn in the aisle between the tables and the milk dispenser.  I didn’t 
want to let her go! 

To this day, I smile when I hear the song!

Goodnight Kiss

I’m standing out at midnight
Waiting for you under the stars
Pacing back and forth
Waiting for your beautiful eyes

I’m praying that we’ll dance in the moonlight
But I’ll be crying if you leave me alone tonight
Cause it’s a night like this
That I really need your kiss
And I know I never wanna miss a night with you

I see the wonder of your heart
And all your beauty inside
Being with you makes me feel like I can fly
And I know you’re the only reason why

I cant help but wonder what you see in me
Without you what would I be
I love you more than you know
You can always make me high when I’m low

I’m praying that we’ll dance in the moonlight
But I’ll be crying if you leave me alone tonight
Cause it’s a night like this
That I really need your kiss
And I know I never wanna miss a night with you

The Moon

Moonlit skies light up my face 
as I sit here in this place 
surrounded by the music of the creatures of the night

The crickets chirp their peaceful song
the river runs quietly along 
as if they are in a dance together with themselves.

The moon seems to hold my dreams
within itself or so it seems,
until I see the stars brighten and light up in the night sky.

Gazing into them I am filled with wonder
hearing a sound like roaring thunder
Yet no clouds block my view in this glorious night.

But yet a voice comes so sweet and tender
and propels me willingly to surrender
to the dreams and hopes that feel my heart and mind.

It's almost like sunshine springing out through rain
it takes away all of life's pain
and makes dreaming a dream something real.

To feel your heart come alive within you
to know that there is a big breakthrough
in all that you ever dreamt your life could become. 

It's worth hanging your dreams on the moon,
to feel such warmth, like a well-played tune
strumming on the strings of the deepest part of your spirit. 

Like the flowers blooming in the meadow 
the dreams began to open and flow
and I begin to my own song that goes along with the night.

A reflection of light from the moon on my face 
made me think of dreams and embrace
the love that is within a voice, a song, a night.

After the Summer Ball

The last dance is over, the summer ball fades away
It's early morning as we walk along the esplanade
The love of my life in the most beautiful white gown
Hand in hand we whisper, kissing in love fuelled drown

We pause as we absorb the gentle rushing of the waves
Inner feelings of desire feed the thoughts we longingly crave
The moon above delights against a cobalt ebony sky
Whilst diamonds sparkle brightly captured in her eyes

Our home we finally reach knowing the dawn will soon be nigh
On entering our bedroom a most beautiful sight espies
Behind her back she holds the most delightful of red rose
Her back now bare to open showing porcelain skin exposed

She turns to me and looks, theirs an alluring in her eyes
Slowly I walk towards her on her shoulders my hands apply
To her nape I kiss, whispering sweet nothings in her ear
Another dance has started as our longing draws ever near

With gentle steps we take, to a spread of silken sheets
Her summer ball in fall, peachy skin my eyes now meet
Lacy lingerie of white attracts the man in me
Alone my love and I, two naked torso's touching free

Adventurous we become, caressing undulations each
Sighs interrupting kisses for the sweet spots that we seek
In my hand I take the Rose brushing the petals against her pert
Touching, we start to ignite, two in love now so alert

In sync our bodies bind amidst sheets on silken lie
Mirroring waves on the ocean our gyrations in loving reply
Inner warmth excites, our joyous release so beautifully free
We melt into each other, two souls asleep, appeased

First Kiss

Cecilia stood with him as my eyes filled with envied rage 
I had asked her to be mine at prom but was second to the stage
She dazzled the ballroom as bated breaths of onlookers viewed
Her figure in white satin caused all to experience an exclamatory mood
Bleach white with stream- lined sleekness adorning Long lacy sleeves
 Pinkish mother of pearl fasteners from shoulder to fingers weaved
Each aligned like little glistening sparklers- beautiful yet Godly conceived
Hair fashioned as a cascading water fall full of auburn red curls
Turning to mist at her lower waist causing my dreamful rage to be placed in whorls
Spinning more spinning- my world out of control
Oh how I wanted her long moments ago
A plucked rose of red love pined to her heart side breast
Gave me notice as I knew I could not rest
Like a lion on the prowl- to the dance floor I stalked
To dance with my dream girl whose heart I would shock
Tapping aspersion the shoulder of the man whom I gave envy and hate
Excuse me please sir-may I cut in on your lovely date
Softly spoken “We’ve got tonight” I whispered in her ear
Drawing her ever the closer- Oh my dear
Seger’s words audibled sweetly around the dance hall loomed
No longer the wait-I vowed boldly and calm 
No longer to hesitate- aroused by her flowery balm
My lips to hers pressed- for she did not resist
Thus it was the moment of our very first kiss

William part 1

I ask all to be open minded as I tell the story of my friend,  William .
There are so many prejudice in this World , from color to sex 

To me it has always been the soul , the person inside 
For one that is shallow will not experience life in true blessing 

William my friend was African American , he was fun and personality full of 'I am here "
William was Gay , William disowned , William called "A queer "

Well this is a lesson for all to know
God does not care what color , but the heart , what color it shows .

I had left my 1st Husband , with 2 children I had to support .
I was depressed , felt alone in the civilian World of a sort 

For when I got to Monterey bay , I was on a Military base 
Very shy and recluse , not leaving the perimeter of the land 
I opened such a big door when I left that abusive Man 

I had the tiniest apartment with 2 little rooms , probably 550 sq. feet I presume .
I will never for get the night He came to my door , William ," Girl, lets go dancing 
Let's go explore ! He called me 'The platinum Blonde "

We went out together and danced , he was amazing ! William energized any room . He Lit it Up ! 
For he had something inside his beautiful soul , no money could buy, nor silver or gold.

Well years went by in Monterey bay , I had fallen in love with a man , Lost so much time .

Time went by , after the man broke my heart ,I remember "where is William "
I missed something that lies  deep in my heart . The true Love and friendship of he I craved .

Now this story is long so go to  "William part 2  "be patient , be brave .

Dancing in the Grave Yard

I dance upon you
and your spirit I lift
in to my heart.
I dance upon you all
I dance where I can
in between the headstones
on grasses of divan,
where once you’re feet laid
where your love ones
shed their last evanescent tear.
I dance through
the small hours of night
and the longest time of day,
I dance, I dance, I dance
this my humble homage to you all
you whom served your era well,
you made the masters
with your skill your energy,
you fought their bloody wars
your enterprise kept them rich
but only of an earthly kind.
Oh yes when I dance
I dance and I remember you all,
so to you that spread your seed
ever so well
to give another generation life,
I dance!!

SECRETS TO TELL

The night is like blissful music
sunset begins her sweet song
The morning may bring day bright
but in the evening the lights come on

8 to 5 is like holding her breath
she's just counting down the time
Until the sun kisses the horizon
and her melody weds perfect rhyme 

Now watching her in the moonlight
my heart has never seen so well
I've got heaven in my eye sight
oh the stars have secrets to tell

So you're asking why I love her
to you she seems a bit too plain
You give all the reasons you're better
but in the night sky they seem insane

Can't begin to fully comprehend
all the flavors of love's moonbeams
Yeah, she heightens all my senses
still you think I'm trapped in bad daydreams

But watching her in the moonlight
my heart has never seen so well
I've got heaven in my eye sight
oh the stars have secrets to tell

Girl, I'm watching you in the moonlight
our hearts see each other so well
We're touching heaven under starlight
oh the secrets they know well

We're touching heaven under starlight 
oh the secrets
our night sky secrets
oh the secrets
They know well

On summer moors


On summer moors the sea waves splash for years
the shadows draw upon the walls festoons
unspoken verse, conceived on silent piers,
the advent of our loneliness attunes.

That day of June remained our only feast
and minds' ascension to the astral reign,
blooms' multitude of fragrances released,
a purple thistle on the field and rain.

Remember me when lone stars shine and laugh,
hands held because of June's reminding call,
we celebrate this night on lonely wharf
and acanthine of solitude's dance hall.

...On every tenth of June my eyes embrace,
above the summer moors, your lines of face.

Spirit Of The Unicorn and The One

This poem is dedicated to PD on her birthday October 7th…
Unicorns are magical and no one but the one chosen may ride them…
And you must be magical, too. So PD I have arranged this just for you.
If you feel the rhythm you will feel the ride.

The one accepts the unicorn and the unicorn accepts the one.
No one rides a unicorn… It’s a dance in poise and symmetry as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The power is felt in the movement as the unicorn stretches out its gate.
The muscles move beneath the one with power awaiting to escape.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The fluidity of the gate is matched by the fluidity of the one.
The nostrils flair in both… The dance has just begun…
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
If they do not work together… They will not work at all.
The unicorns’ mane like the ones’, is held tight in the flowing winds thrall.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
With each step they take… A balance must be struck.
For every step they take… Their intent must be as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The spirit of the unicorn must merge with the spirit of the one.
Together they merge in a symbiotic relationship as old as the unicorn.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Feel the movement… Feel the power… Feel each muscle as it moves.
Feel each breeze unfold… Feel your hearts and souls as they meld as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Point to counter point… The one doesn’t own the unicorn or the unicorn the one.
What looks so easy is not a simple thing as they travel forth as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The connection is tightly woven. This spirit of Unicorn and one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
And with each ride together they will meld again as one…
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Now don’t be frightened, as this world you begin to escape.
For the unicorn is unfurling its wings and with the one is about to soar…
Swish, Swish… Swish, Swish
Just lean across its neck, and stare up at the skies…
For the stars shall be your present tonight… On such a beautiful night…
Swish, Swish… Swish, Swish

Teach Me How to Dance

You said, “You and Me” is true and polite way
“You” must come first before the word “Me”, 
“Do YOU love ME? ” I asked sincerely
You answered, ”****, yes Hon, I really do love you, badly! ”

Looking for a tuxedo, you asked me if it fits you
I said I like the way you first dressed, the first time I admired you.
I liked the way you gentlemanly dressed 
You smiled devilishly, I am impressed, 
And that suit revealed best fit on your chest! 

I like most to wear my best bare back gown
Cling to your arm, dance with the music’s sublime.
Yet you said, “Teach me how to dance, Hon, I have never known.”
“Let your heart teach you; it will make you step on time.
And you’ll see…you can bring me to a dance only our hearts can rhyme! ”

“But I will step on your feet…” you uttered in sorry
Hmn… You know you can’t harm my feet, I have no worry, 
Our hearts will guide us to a dance we have never imagined
You and I, I and you… dance in rhythm… ’till US is through…

Let’s dance.

This Is The Love

Stand up and shake;
Feel the rhythm in your heart.
Ignite those pants;
We get up and dance.
God on our mind,
Eternity in our souls;
Feel the chills of those bones.
It's the hope.
Open those closed doors:
Into Heaven we go,
Welcomed and forgiven.
Here is the love;
Let's dance!

New Mom

Inside my stomach I feel the flutters, I don't know what to think 

so I watch other mothers. 

Our future uncertain - yet an exciting mystery. 

I can not wait to meet you, I wonder if you will look like me!

A child's love I have been told is the purest kind of love, like gold.

Is it true? I hope I feel such love from you.

Of course I'm nervous and scared, but if you think I'm bad,

well you should see your dad!

He loves you already, that is what he often tells me.

In nine months time the mystery will be solved,

October will be a time for smiles with all involved.

The Dance of the Prince and the Bride

In the early days when I was a child I would imagine myself a bit wild I would think to be in a grand ballroom With the princess there, and I am the groom We would dance together, I would be great Better than all the rest, they couldn’t state How near perfect I was this lovely day No one could challenge me in no pure way We would dance the best, and dance the longest For I was the greatest, and the strongest I would surely kiss her, my gorgeous bride Nowhere I’d rather be, I wouldn’t hide For my heart is hers, and her heart is mine This dance will last forever, for all time

Yearning To The Silence

The Lust Chamber is the place where deep emotions confront deep carnal desires
and then they dance 'The Dans Terribl'.
So Let's The Dance Begin.

In the room of Cold Shadows our hearts pounding
in each of their world, by making an awkward
empathy to other
through The Wall Of The Yearning Silence.

Would I sell my soul to you, my darling?
Would you give me your flesh in that trade?
Can we be The Devil and The Faust at same time?
Can we expect what we can't have?
We in The Dark Corners.

'Bellevue' of impossible is our tension
Rumors Of The Destruction and Construction
is just a game in that place where
our bodies and souls rise and fall together.

You're telling that your silence is more powerful
than my yearning
Do I have to obey your mimics, then?
Do you want to set it free, The Beast inside me?
Feel me through your domination which I will destruct
and transform to infinite love.

Set me Free, Set me Free, my Goddess,
Set me free and be hot
Set me free from my painful insanity.

The Bliss of Winter

Please….. 
Will you walk out in the snow with me?
As the icy cold winds blow through your hair and cuts the skin
The red rose colour of your cheeks covers your face,
I walk with you and wish this feeling of love will never go away.

Please…..
Will you dance out in the snow with me?
As I hold you in my arms and sing the sweet lullabies of life in your ear
The snow swirls around us in a frenzy of flutters,
I dance with you and wish this feeling of hope will never leave.

Please…..
Will you lay out in the snow with me?
As I turn my head and look into the smile that brought joy to my life
I shed a tear for all the sadness you’ve taken away,
I lay with you and wish this feeling of peace will never end.

Please…..
Will you make love out in the snow with me?
As I gaze onto the beauty of your being and wash away the hate of  sin
We move together in the motions of life that bind us,
I make love with you and wish this feeling of bliss will last
Forever.

Waste not the love of a lady


Waste not her love in all it's tender exhibits
Nor take for granted the look in her eyes
Lest her softness be calloused fictitious 
Or her trust in your heart be despised 

The strength of a man lies not in his stature
Nor the kingdoms he's built in his name
It's not in the dreams defeated or captured
Or heroically owning some blame 

The love of a lady discerns what is true
The child's heart that dwells in her man
His need to be nurtured vulnerabilities debut
Entrance to an unguarded land

There's a bravery more gallant 
Than the absence of fear
When in loves sweet embrace transparent
Gratitudes strength displayed by way of unbridled tears

Ah so few things in life so precious
As the slow dance between woman and man
Fewer still are the moments that leave you breathless
When love finds it's way past adversities plan 

I say... Waste not the love of a lady
Your rugged stance will have its due
Lavish her with pure surrender
Her last breath will whisper... "My love is true"

The Twirl

You danced with me
under the youthful trees
no music played just
the summer breeze
you took my breath
with every touch
your words were perfect
you said just enough
 
i tried to hide
how you made me
feel because i knew
that We Just Couldnt Be
You already Had Your Girl
And I Was Just Someone
You Liked to Twirl
 
That night we spent
beneath the stars
when you told me
you loved me , and
showed me all your scars
that night i should have
held your hand
that night i didnt kiss you
when i should of had
 
But that night i was
someone elses girl
so all we shared was
a midnight twirl
on those swings
so many stories we
would tell
you were the first
that in love I fell !

Our dance

I'll dance in repetitive circles

spinning carelessly in my teal dress of tears.

I have never been able to escape this pain for a few long years.

But with the violin drifting in the air

I'll dance by myself holding on to no-one and nothing but choice.

I'll dance on and on in the silence unitl I realize I have lost my own voice.

I'll stop, cry

wipe them to the floor

And just sway in dancing rhythem some more.

Night will tarnish the sky but the moon will loom

I will take no notice until you're presence enters silently into the room.

I'll glance over your way with crimson escaping my face.

So you do not notice my hesitance of your being i'll concentrate on keeping my own 
distant pace.

You will sweep across the room regardless until you have reach my side

where I will take your outstretched hand, and on we shall glide.

Moving in sync, holding this moment until the very end.

I'll smile a shy smile affraid of what my heart may send to my lips.

You have hands of warmth, strong and careful

You have balance and control over this dance that was once my own.

With you here like this i am reminded of what it feels like to not be alone.

Swept by a love song played smoothly across the piano and violin

I will move closer to your heart, I will trace the outline of your face with my eyes

Dancing like this makes me want to hide my heart in a better disguise.

But I can't because you show me what love feels like without uttering a single word

Not one syllable nor vowel is heard.

You show me passion with a look, you hold me not with you're arms but rather your 
heart.

I'm affraid I could never let this or you go.. Trust me we will never depart...

She wears a gown of white, she's laughing all the while
He dips her low, and then she twirls, like a dance of long ago
Her Grandpa holds her close, it's captured for all time
I watch them spin across the floor,….and cannot help but smile

I have viewed this scene, so many times before
Sweet recollections waltz across my screen
Still, each time I watch this, new tears well up and sting
And blur their joyful glide upon the wedding floor

Traces of childhood in her face,  she seems so young
He’s thin and pale yet, brimming wide with love
Do you see he teases her, the same it always was?
Who knew how ill he was,  how soon the end would come?

One would never know….their steps are light and gay
Her life was changing now, and so was his
A grandfather and his precious one, how sweet a day this is
The dance goes on and on…a sweet ballet lives on …beyond today

Album of Hearts

Gray and abysmal are her days
Each moment a faded dark haze
Consumed in her fairy tale dream
Her prince never came it would seem 
Venturing she thought it were fate
A new destination, clean slate

Then within a breath of meeting
And an awkward funny greeting
She was cast under a love spell
Too embarrassed to ever tell
How easily the lyrics came 
Now that he set her heart inflame

Listen to the keys dance along 
Oh how melodic is their song
Listen to the strings strum along
Oh the harmony of their song
In perfect tune with emotion
Played with pure, loving, devotion
Two separate songs bound as one
The album of hearts has begun

Her fantasy life broken down
Soon after arriving in town
Energized to attain her goals
Pondering after long night strolls
Rejuvenated was her heart
As though life had begun to start

A story begins to unfold
Yet their feelings remained untold
Curiosity starts to bloom
Her soul slowly consumed in gloom
Hoping for answers of desire
She burned with his internal fire

Listen to the keys dance along 
Oh how melodic is their song
Listen to the strings strum along
Oh the harmony of their song
In perfect tune with emotion
Played with pure, loving, devotion
Two separate songs bound as one
The album of hearts has begun

The album of hearts has begun
Two separate songs bound as one
And somehow they already knew
Without them saying “I love you”

when the music stops

Oh the way you dance, 
Leaves me entranced, 
I let you set the pace. 

I feel i am on the brink, 
I dare not even blink
Such a loving embrace. 

The music slows, 
We move in close, 
You match my steps each time

We've loved,  we've fought
As far as we've got, 
Was all to tune and rhyme. 

Not an unmasked kiss, 
How pure is this? 
If i can't know it all

Despite my desires, 
I do grow tired, 
Of this beautiful mascarade ball

Last Dance

The last time I saw you alive you hugged me tight and said my name as we danced. We only moved a few steps but it felt like the music played until the DJ said last call.  Little did I know you were teaching me the new step, the step of letting go.
Never had I felt the expression of dance embodying my nerves with love from head to toe.
I watched over you as you tossed and turned to find comfort with your discomfort... With your pain!
I wished I could have shouldered your pain, I wish I could have bottled lighting so you can once again feel the purity of rain.
What is a spot light that doesn't dim?
An ANGEL!
A angel whom memories run through me like a white wall receiving invitation from a projector and its film.
My thoughts are lost within its thoughts leaving me vegetated.
I ain't much for letting go! As much as I love your new position I hate it.
I need your voice, I need to feel your warmth, I need to see your eyes piercing me, I need it.... I need it!
Slowly moving left to right as I lead you backwards I felt your breath sigh.
I swallowed that breath being breathed; I got you I got you!
The world lost focus as God placed our moment in HD.
I'm dancing my last dance for the memory of you and me.

Lilies

There was a time when we picked those lilies. 
You don’t quite remember when, but I surely do.
The mid-summer sun kept the fields warm,
And caressed the phlox as it slow-danced to the breeze.
And the light held on to our eyelashes
As if it needed them, pleaded for their existence,
Like a child with the eyes of a butcher
And the smile of a poet,
In need of shelter
And love
And attention. 
We danced to that Indian summer-
Little did we know that it was our last.
And our laughter, filling the heavens,
With our present and our past
Echoed throughout.
Seeping, consuming, lingering,
Echoing even louder at the touch of our hands.
Little did I know that life would grab you away,
Borrow you for a dance and
Never give you back.
Little did I know that this purple phlox-
Where lively things flourished to our company
Would crack and break
Like a twig fooled by the storm.
And now all that remains of you and I
And our dreams, lives, past, future, beginning, end,
Ambitions, and existence
Is this place –
So bittersweet 
Grotesque yet beautiful
Captivating
An ant stuck in Baltic amber
Worn in a necklace around my chest
Where my heart is a cave
And it’s cold and it’s dark.
And there’s nothing left but these lilies 
Which laugh and dance to the breeze.

Silent Conversations

Silent Conversations


The wind is up today
Coastal clouds
Playing tag with dust devils
On the shimmering bent mirages
Wavering their uncertainty of heat
Where the sea rolls its ice cream caps
Cool in the blue hinted sweeps of grey

In the chill air con bar
We sat upon empty stools
The languid condensations of beer
Trickling their refreshments 
Of cool back of the throat smiles

I hold converse with the vacant air
While every demoralised seat
Longs to have you safely ensconced
And listen to silent conversations
But they watch instead my empty stare

The wind is up today
Carrying beach kites dancing in acrobat wheels
While unstrung gulls rock unsteady
On the gusts of southern Sarah 
And the dust devils dance their own display  
Of hot dry air

The gold lustre slowly sipped
With the curling tongs of cigarettes
And the deep dark amber of ancient teak 
Thinks of auburn caught in a giggle
Rests upon my elbows
With unsteady poise

The wind is up today
Sneaking through niches and humming to itself
A song that I wish would carry her voice
And the dust devils tweak and twirl at the sky
But not with any dance of mine
I sit and hold silent conversations
With pillaged and abandoned chairs

Lila

This form was made from star stuff
To radiate endless love.
My soul is whole, but part of
land, sea, and sky above.
I am whole, but only half of
Creations infinite expanse.
I think that you are Lila
The universe’s perfect dance.

The Latin Dancers

Midnight was approaching and the dance floor was stark Colors of the spectrum were weaving and leaving their mark Lights spun in brilliant flashes of reds, greens and blues. Sparse bodies were gyrating as if music pulsated the hues. The music stopped. He stepped out of the shadows; on his arm was a dark beauty. They walked into the hushed room; the air thick and sultry. Dancing with my partner I watched them through the darkness He pulled her lithe body to him, how I envied their closeness. All eyes were upon them. Piercing rays of greens and yellows flashed up and apart A deep bass suddenly throbbed with the rhythm of a heart Black hair and dark skin, he danced in his tight, arrogant style She danced around him, shaking her body, nimble and nubile The music beat faster. The couple twirled around the dance floor as if it was theirs Pulsating music and scarlet colors flashed around like flares. His sweat became hers as their sensuous lips barely met He lifted her into the air, holding her high with the ascent. He lowered her to the ground. Watching the Latino lovers as they danced through the night I felt as if I were a voyeur who couldn’t turn from the sight. She raised her hand to him; his eyes quickly turned my way Suddenly, I turned to my partner and my hips began to sway My heart beat faster. I could feel him drawing closer the faster my body danced Strobes of red hues flew overhead, as backwards I glanced. He pulled me against him and I felt his strong masculinity Then spiraled me outwards, his hand gripping mine tightly. Our eyes locked. He held me firmly in his arms, we danced slowly then quickly Dancing to the rhythm the music began taking over my body. The Latin dancer’s eyes looked into mine with a hypnotic stare As breathlessly we danced and soon I became no longer aware Of anyone but us. Cerulean blues flashed over us as he flung my head back His lips bent down to mine, his eyes piercing and black Our hearts beat together as one and my eyes closed for the kiss But colors changed, music was subdued; something was amiss I opened my eyes. It was as if I’d awakened to find that their world didn’t exist And the Latin lover I’d danced with was no more than a mist. Circling couples danced around aimlessly and suddenly I froze Violet hues slid over the walls as he walked into the shadows. His eyes met mine and he vanished.

Lost Love

I have no memory of its companionship.
Solace gloom surrounds me, slipping away in the distance.
Lost forever, never to find it, only a shadow of what was.
Words never to be spoken again.
The silence, suffocating me while being romanced.
As a bride who lost her husband on the wedding day.
Empty covered bottles, never to be filled, collecting dust.
Taking me further away, without being close.
Searching for happiness, never to be found.

Our Love Song

On this day, the first day of  the rest of our life together I pledge  my eternal love to 
only you
On this day  I gaze into your eyes and see that you are the half  that makes me 
hole
On this day I see that  trough love is really worth waiting for
On this day, the first day of the rest of our life together I pledge my eternal love to 
only you
On this day we will cry for we have found the one we are ment for
On this day we will smile for what is felt is pure joy
On this day, the first day of the rest  of our life together I pledge my eternal love to 
only you
On this day as we dance to our song we here a melody no other can here
On this day and through eternity we will dance as one
On this day, the first day of the rest of our life together I pledge my eternal love to 
only you

Dance ballerina dance
All the stations played it
Nat King Cole was the star
Couples smooched to the music
In every club and bar
Naughty things happened after dusk,
Girls wed, babies all premature.

Acting My Age

“You’re not a giddy teenager
So why can’t you act you’re age?”
I looked at him heartbroken
Then my body shook in a rage

“Being passionate about life
Means I am acting like a child?
You demand that I be demure
Does that mean being meek and mild?

No, no, my dear, I want to shout
I want to be crazy and mad
To stick my head out the window
Belt out love songs that make me glad

I want to let my body move
To a belly dance drumming sound
I want to feel young and alive
Make love without hushing the sound

On days when I water the yard
I want to get wet to the core
As I point the hose to the sky
The wetness makes me crave for more

I want to see my sun catcher
Make the rainbows dance on my wall
And have multicolored sweet dreams
I want to wander through them all

When you take me for a long ride
I’ll let the wind dance with my hair
I want the music to be loud
What if people just stop and stare?

I want to laugh till my sides hurt
And the tears are just streaming down
I want people to be happy
So I play the part of the clown

They say life begins at forty
Now I know that it does for me
Don’t you dare try to bring me down
You know this 'girl' needs to feel free

Peter Pan’s not the only one
Who will stay forever this young
He’s got me for good company
You know, we have songs yet unsung

So…please, if I am eccentric
And acting a little insane
Remember that I’m passionate
So please, I beg you, don’t complain

And when I want to be ravished
Or to play a naughty love game
Don’t say that was for way back then
Don’t you dare try to make me tame

I desire to ingest life
At a mad and frenetic pace
I am desperate to feel the rain
Splashing down on my upturned face

You know that I must be sun kissed
And to spray on coconut spray
To do handstands in seawater
And to bask in this sun drenched day

I want to cry when things move me
I want to feel, to taste, to touch
I want to giggle like a girl
When something does please me so much

I’m sorry I disappoint you
Sorry I don’t act forty five
But before this life is over
I want to feel vibrant…alive!

Yet, I will try not to shame you
Try to tone it down just a bit
But my dear, this fact you must know
In your box, I surely don’t fit

Yes, you may think I’m 'immature'
And I may act much like a teen
But I’d rather be wild and free
Than captive to rules like a queen."

THE RHYTHM OF OUR POETRY

Can I sing my way in your heart tonight 
With every word spoken 
I promise to fill all your empty spaces 
So let me sing for you my love

be the music that guides our love 
Let our bodies be embraced by the rhythm of our poetry

Here Lies the Problem

Here Lies the Problem I can’t believe it! I did it again! Once more I told the truth! Each and every time I desire to disguise Something that should not be told, I end up in a deep dark hole. This is not a place I wanted to be right now. My vision is restricted to only a frown. From here on out, I swear I’ll be a devout disciple of the deceiving arts. She was my girlfriend, Up until just now. We just broke up. Two years gone down the drain. All because of a stupid claim That turned out to be true. She asked me if I had any clue, Whether or not her dress looked good. My response to her was complete truth, The dress was too long, She was bound to trip, and any guys looking at her would dip their heads to look between her armpits. After that comment, she waved it aside. She decided that it was the best that she could possess. (Though in her defense, she was hard-pressed to find a small enough dress) And who would have guessed, that all the other girls were dressed in their absolute best Form-fitting gowns and floral crowns. She cried aloud in distress and bowed her head to look at her dress. She then turned around and tripped into my arms. In the process, she set off the fire alarm. Mayhem followed shortly after. It turned out to be an utter disaster. Now it is one day that has passed, And she just told me our relation is in the past. I can’t believe that I told her the truth and left. I Didn’t Lie Because it Would Have Hurt More...

Dancing

When we danced together,
Only you heard the melody
Knowing that was forever,
 
Then I kissed your forehead
Your arms embraced my body
And you asked me to lead:
 
It was after the midnight
Among many strange faces
I went left and I went right,
 
Then your eyes were wide,
Dreams leave no traces
But your smile at my side…

Come Chill With Me Tonight

Verse 1:
Don't be shy,
I just wanna spend some time,
Make you mine,
Make it right,
Don't need to worry,
Girl, no one will ever compare,
To you,

Chorus:
Girl, The moon is close tonight,
Mother nature's on my side,
Let the clock move slow all night,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight,

Verse 2:
Listen to the night,
Listen to the moving of the trees,
Their talking to me,
Controlling me,
They make me move,
As I watch the movement of the 
moon,

Chorus:
The moon is close tonight,
And it's shining on so bright,
And our love is worth the fight,
Come chill with me tonight,

Girl, the party's off tonight,
And their playing the disco right,
And the club won't be jumping 
tonight,
Come chill with me tonight,

I said the dj's on my side,
And he's playing our song all night,
We can dance all through the night,
Come chill with me tonight...

DRESSED IN TONIGHT'S MOONLIGHT

Dressed in tonight's moonlight
You shine brighter than the stars
I'm taken by immeasurable beauty
Girl, I'm wondering who you are
Unnamed angel with Heaven glow
I'm mesmerized by diamond eyes
I'm feeling my racing heartbeat
Breeze is dancing past your hair
Oh.. my breath is stolen away
In awe as I near your presence
Almost speechless, I ask to dance
And you turn and smile at me
Your look reaches to my very soul
You say.. 
             I thought you'd never ask

So many candles to see the light

Like joyous green of summer, my heart is singing filled
With you, while winter`s white is witness of good willed;
The glass works and the hot red wine spreading light:
Comforting carols “Silent Night” or “Brad Frumos”. 

Comforting thoughts of good like good miners,
And cakes a lot with names of saints and sinners
Looking the heart of sweet cherries strudel under the sight

Of mother humming “Silent Night” or “Brad Frumos”.

Smoldering embers and feeling like hot chocolate 
With scent of incense offered to every Christian mate
Under the new temptation of good and hope of right
 
Teaching of church on “Silent Night”,under “Brad Frumos”

The sacrifice of the pig, a ritual Symphony in red,
At the other side of modal logic, with wine and bread
And slaughtered pig and soured soups that might  
                                                               
Be prepared and savored on "Silent Night" ,near “Brad Frumos”


The aromatic smoke ascending, and dancing heavenly
Like our attempt to preserve and conserve not only
The clay and flash creature but also the inner light 

And so many candles to see the Light on “Silent Night”...

Echoes Of Celandine (Winter Jazz)

She was the coolest chick I never knew,
with hair of black and eyes of blue;
like, I'd watch her as the sun set down,
she held the breath of the whole damn town.

Now, incarcerated, I know the shadows are fast comin' down,
and I can see the strip lights growin' dim;
the fact she split, I cannot get my head around,
or the fact the winter nights are drawin' in.

All I seem to do is smoke and dream of wine,
or sit around clingin' to relics, servin' my time;
I cannot shut down the thoughts rattlin' thru' my mind:
those ghost dance malicious echoes of Celandine.

It's not as though she much looked my way
or that I could think of a single word to say to her;
all I did was watch her walkin', cool as jazz, in the street;
her smiles, her gigs, were never for me, yet they blew me off my feet, man.

So, one day, anyhow, she just upped and moved away from town;
I cannot forget, or believe, how much I missed her, how it broke me down.
She never knew I existed, I guess, never gave me a first, let alone a second glance;
in her world, in her eyes, losers like me don't stand a chance.

I celebrated my love for her that night in a drunken shotgun roar;
high on T. Bird, low on brains, I hit the local liquor store.

So why now do I smoke these murderin' cigarettes and dream of lousy, bitter wine?
Why do I sit like some burned-out zombie, servin' my time?
And why, after all these years, am I still haunted by the ghost dance malicious echoes of Celandine.

They say it's better to have loved and lost…
I say,
drop dead, 'cos
you know nothin'.

A-Beautiful Life

Your golden hair like Jason's fleece
Flows and streams, now disarrayed, yet neat
Waving as a banner at once to the beat
Yet with promise and rapacity so replete

How your eyes sparkle behind your lids
How they must glow and how they must flick
Flash when they open so wide and blue
Yet now closed, as fire trap't by flue

Your arms now lift, delicate fingers wave
To banish the world of monotony and pain
They so loose and murmuring true meaning
A life I view 'thout your simple, sweet reasoning

As you move, loose rapacious rampant glee
From a world of spirit - simplicity
Your hips they do sway, speak condemnation
Of all misery hereto, to which we seem hasten

Conniving voracious creature which harkens
Is banished and cast off, made but microcosm*
Leo, great lion is as nothing to your rhythm
Struck off as venality to your creation, your schism

The human so simple so caught up by miasma*
Is at once transfixed, in place, in paroxysm*
This viewer at once poised, caught up in his pride
Is now gravitating, and to thee I must slide

Knowest you how wonderfully you exemplify
What is contrast to left - so right
Nay but you don't, and such is thy grace
You dance so light-airy, make perfect this place

Shining hair and glowing eyes
Re-laxed posture, abandoned pride
All memory is cast away, aside
As you dance in beauty, perfection, arised.


* Microcosm - A world in miniature.  
* Miasma - A noxious atmosphere or influence
* Paroxysm - A sudden attack or violent expression of a particular emotion or activity

*** The image here represented is supposed to be a girl dancing.  Leo was a suitor of hers, rebuffed by the dancer, who enjoyed herself, while dancing alone to "It's a beautiful life," by Ace of Base

WORDS FROM MY SOUL

WORDS FROM MY SOUL! 

I promised to be
honest with  my soul
Even if you think
something else is
happening in my mind


I love to sing, play
& dance with your
voice! 
I need your spirit
to enlighten my joy!


It's easy for you,
just think about me;

And listen : Here is
my soul talking to
you: 
“
He says I love this
white dove
My heart will stop
beating if you don’t
look at me! 
I’ve found the world
; dark and blessed ,
I have one concern:
Losing you & I’d be
dead! 

Grace fills your
eyes as a jewel; 
Like the effect of
your ingenuous
smile! 

I read your glance
that brightens my
eyes
I hear someone says
: Wow! That’s so
nice!


In turn & I see
someone invisible 
That’s Don Juan, Who
murmurs :
impossible! 


At the moment I hear
another voice;
He speaks to my
soul, as I’m in his
house: 

"Oh dear friend !
why do you
constantly
contemplate? 
You look above ,
from the down till
falling of shadowy
nights?
Leaves the sky, look
into your soul!” 


When I looked around
more precisely ; 
I suddenly
recognized him!  It
was Victor.H !
(Victor Hugo)

As he was
disappearing in the
night, he added: 

"Have love! & charm
your time! 
Because soon you
will find in her
beautiful eyes:

Original  pleasures
!
And a mysterious 
smile! " 


After he disappeared
in the dark , I got
alone again …

I began throwing
strange noises into
space. 
Nobody responds, I
was in a desert! 
And  my soul began
crying in tears; 

I think it is enough
listening  to my
heart! 
It suffers from the
a sweet pain :
Which is your love,
that keeps smiling
in my tears!

Cradled in your Arms

Cradled in your arms
Held close to your heart
This dance will never end
Once you let it start
Step away with me
Follow where I go
Our loves takes us to places
That only we can know
Lost within a dream
we drift away in peace
passionate souls united
our hearts feels its release
this dance is never over
in your arms eternally
we hold each other closely
our spirits are set free
love may sometimes stumble
but ours will never fall
for what we feel within
is the greatest love of all
I hear the music play
Lost in its melody
We dance through out the night
Together you and me
When I hold on to your heart
And you nuzzle close to me
Holding each other together
That’s the way its meant to be
For as long as I shall live
My hands reach out to touch
As we share the love we give
And we give so very much
As we dance in to the night
And the night time fades away
I will be cradled in your arms
To stay

A Dance with Chance

Chance, Chance, Do you want to dance? 
Dance, dance, toward me in the night. 
Hundreds of bodies to the left,
Hundreds of bodies to the right, 
Light everywhere and on everyone and up
To the ceiling we now go and then down 
to the floor we head low.
Yet, you shine as the only light
that I wish to completely fill my sight

Our Dance

The floating lights
adds to the mood,
he takes my hand
while leading me to the dance floor 
his touch so tender
makes me feel like I am floating
on a cloud,
as he gently move his hand
 over my bare back
so protective and caring
the soft music in the background
creates the perfect ambiance,
as we glide across the dance floor
the other couples seems to fade away
it is just the two of us,
in a love dance of our own,
a dance of commitment…

He pulls me closer
and whisper in my ear
“You look breathtaking tonight” 

cheek to cheek, we dance the night away…

ROCKnROLL OLDIES NARRATIVE

July 4, 1961

           Well HELLO MARY LOU, 

You won’t believe this but I just HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE that someone else was 
getting a DOUBLE SHOT OF MY BABYS’ LOVE. Right now TIME WON’T LET ME alone ever 
since I heard GLORIA saying please, BE MY BABY. I was just WALKIN’ THE DOG when I SAW 
HER STANDING THERE. She came right out and told me she would GIVE ME SOME LOVIN in 
the MIDNIGHT HOUR. She guaranteed we would feel JUST LIKE ROMEO AND JULIET; all I 
had to do was HOLD ON TIGHT. But I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW, thanks to the warm 
CALIFORNIA SUN.

I remember when I was playing the field; all I ever thought was WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN 
LOVE?  I’d give anything to get back to someone like sweet little SHEILA. You remember her 
don’t you?  OH DONNA, if your sister lets you read THE LETTER I wrote from SAN 
FRANSCICO, you know I’d be taking ROUTE 66 back to see that little BROWN EYED GIRL. 
Then maybe CUPID          can draw back his bow because until now this TRAVELING MAN 
has just been SINGIN’ THE BLUES.
 
I’ve got to find some kind of LOCOMOTION because WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE! 
Maybe I could hitch a ride with MUSTANG SALLY; you know I was BORN TO BE WILD if I’m 
thinking of asking her for a ride. Remember when you and I used to cruise down to 
PALISADES PARK just to KEEP ON DANCIN’ to ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC on a BEAUTIFUL 
SUNDAY afternoon. If it rained we kept time with the wipers and the RHYTHM OF THE RAIN. 
By the way, did you hear that BONEY MARONEY really did DO RON-RON after she drank that 
bottle of LOVE POTION # 9? I guess it is just another example of we really have to LOVE 
ONE ANOTHER because a little SUGARTIME  will go a long way towards making it a 
WONDERFUL WORLD.
 
Poor LOUIE LOUIE  told everyone that I FOUGHT THE LAW after spending a few hours 
drinking down at MARGARITAVILLE, don’t believe him.  There are always two sides to every 
story and BLACK IS BLACK because THAT’LL BE THE DAY I’d be handcuffed by that CHAIN 
OF FOOLS.

IT’S MY PARTY next weekend but it will be just ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT unless I can find 
a little RUNAWAY to be my DREAM LOVER. After all, what would a WORLD WITHOUT LOVE be 
like?   If I can’t hook up with her, DO YOU WANNA DANCE the LA BAMBA, or maybe LET’S 
TWIST AGAIN? We can do anything that you wanna do but LET’S DANCE to that hot little 
oldies band called THE RUNAWAYS.

            All my Loving,
             John 

*Written as a tribute to a local 50’s/60’s cover band called the “RUNAWAY’S” using their play 
list.

Me and you, you and me

The mood is set….
Me and you, you and me
The warmth of Love swims through us both
My touch on your body
Soft and sensual
Your skin lingers,
Vulnerable. 
Your emotions begin to spill like an overflowing caldron
O’ how you desire this moment between…
Me and you, you and me
Your gentile hands on my body,
The touch so delicate 
And your lips against mine
For these feelings we share cannot be defined
Our bodies become one
Together in Love….
Me and you, you and me
Your sweet embrace I cannot resist
And you the same 
Our bodies’ dance together,
A dance of passion and Love
Still as one.
For this moment will end
But the passion,
The Love,
Will last forever…

Dancing With Jesus

Mortar binds cobblestones under our feet;
The scent of oversized orchids fill the air;
See my golden strands braided back; 
His strong hands join mine in perfect precision; 
We glide effortlessly in a Scandinavian waltz;
Suns and moons set yet we never take notice.

Dance With Me

I should be leaving tonight, 
but I am still sitting here feeling uptight.
That is when I hear your music play, 
your hands, they stroke the keys just right.
Then, I get that feeling inside 
and long to feel your body with mine.

Come, dance with me, 
my body, it longs to be free.
Come, let us dance the night away, 
moving together in every way.

See how my body cannot keep still, 
when your body it longs to feel.
See its eagerness for your embrace, 
to feel your kiss on my face.

Come, dance with me, 
my body, it longs to be free.
Come, let us dance the night away, 
moving together in every way

Your music makes it hard to concentrate, 
I think it might be too late.
Your music makes me want to stay, 
I will never get away.
So, in your arms I will lay.

Come, dance with me, 
my body, it longs to be free.
Come, let us dance the night away, 
moving together in every way.

A WALTZ FOR MOTHER

These sobs have never stopped and tears still flow
as dripping leaves after a summer's storm;
this wailing son has lost his joy to sorrow
refusing to be consoled; today, your favorite flowers
I lay on your grave and leave you lovely prayers
by the silver cross for you to read and feel warm
on winter's lonely and cold days
that will drift into the sun's fading glow.



This waltz is for you, mother smiling from Heaven...
and I will dance it while the robins
and larks watch, thinking I am mad to have chosen
a place of mourning and tranquility 
with cypresses offering a pleasant breeze;
would I do this if I didn't love you truly?



Very, very long ago you took my small hand 
and slowly and tenderly taught me how to dance
on a meadow covered with yellow and white daisies;
there was no music, but humming birds sang 
the simplest song they ever knew as the gentle wind caressed our sunlit heads
beneath the August sky traversed by torrid clouds that escaped to other seas.



This waltz is for you, mother living in that place of delight, 
oh, smile with the same tenderness and care of heart;
would any other desire be more intense
than being together and happily dance
that waltz without pausing...sweetly losing ourselves in idyllic fantasy 
and explore happiness in unimaginable ways to shun painful reality?

What is next

I have been looking for my dream car, 1971 Chevelle. Carrying out dreams and goals are not bad things at all. There is a positive on this. I have a very vivid mind and it goes to work from time to time. Thats a feeling. It is hard for Ek to remember things. How i Feel. Song. Everyone thinks people are there to help them but everyone is out for themselves not trying to help each other out. It is all a dream she would have done this and she would have done that but she did not reply. Where did the girls go was the questions asked by all the guys and then discussed by the girls as they drive off. You were drunk, rambling, and you ran them away. Pure 3-2718space240Dash Bravo. What is this you ask? You can put pure in front of anything and sell It.

The Lover's Ghost

I am absent from heavens table
for I miss my love.
Compassion from an angel
helped me slide down a moonbeam,
to visit your lonely heart.

As you sleep, I am with you my darling,
the warmth of my love
creating a fire in your memory.
Where we can sit and talk,
in the glow of embers love.

In this realm we can feel love once again.
Let us dance above these flames of desire,
you in your prom dress and me,
the boy, you made a man.

Once again I can hear your whispers,
Of love and a life together.
Carried on a gentle breeze
listened to by inquisitive angels,
smiling from their windows above

Your words seeding my lonely soul,
trembling my world
with dreams for eternity to keep.


Tonight the moon smiles for you and me
for she too remembers,
the tears of joy from our first kiss
slowly running down both our cheeks.

We never knew they were tears from heaven.
Precious was that moment,
for we never saw the hour glass empty.

But pain did not hurt,
for your face was always with me
and love cannot be killed by time.
For our love will endure
and heaven has dreams for us.

For mortal time is but a light,
to pick that one special rose,
that grows beyond this life.

The Clouds of dreams are lifting
time is slipping through my fingers
And the angel is calling.

So a secret promise, I now plant
 for your soul to cherish,
wrapped in love
to dwell in the recess of your mind.
To be opened when angels call.

For our prom date is not yet over
the music will play on
and I will be waiting,
to hold my rose once more.

And dreams will be ours to make,
to dance under a smiling moon,
to live an angel’s life.

And no more will I miss you.
My rose, my light, 
my love.

The Last Dance

Could I please have this last dance?
For it could be my last chance
To hold you close and feel you sway
Like you did on our wedding day

Fifty years have passed since then
For fifty more I have a yen
Hope this will not be our last
The years have seemed to fly so fast

Our children dancing on this our day
See the grandchildren they sway
The girls they sway just like their mum
Boys like me dance really bum

A golden dance I wish to share
Let them all watch I don’t care
A kiss to end this thrilling night
Then home to bed to hold you tight

After all these years with you 
I will pray as I always do
That in the morning I will see
Your smiling face look back at me

For once that light at last goes out
I will die I have no doubt
Then in that place were spirits go 
Each other again we will get to know

For tis in His Eyes...

Along the shore...

But tis I know...
Some day when I go..
I shall then...
Walk hand and hand
leaving my footprints in the sand..
                 Upon the Shore...
                          Of Eternity...
                                       With my Lord...

Measuring Movements

Somewhere upon the terminator’s birth
The young lovers dance and sway
To a symphony of dawn and starlight
Undulating within newfound passions
These two naively press and discover
The zealous meaning of temperate youth

Lost within the mornings heavy rise
They run through the soft breaking crests
Crashing upon their rococo painted beaches
Living only in the ardor of today’s breath
They pay no heed to the passing of the hour
Twisted adrift the spinning of the moment

Beneath the sweated midday heat 
The aging lovers croon forlornly
Calling out to their passing adolescence
With a softening of fear in each other’s eyes
They gently slip back into the hypnotic
And dance in the divine for a moment longer

Standing in the approaching twilight
The aged lovers stand in raptures kiss
Remembering the moments of yesterdays past
No longer young but still ever vibrant
They languidly begin those heavy laboring steps
Of their life’s final dance together…

Close To You

Will you take me?                          Close to you, close to me
Will you take me?                          Close to you, close to me
To place where                              Close to you, close to me
I can always be                             Close to you, close to me 

Always happy, you make me         Close to you, close to me
Happy, you make me                     Close to you, close to me
Want to get down                         Close to you, close to me
On one knee                                  Close to you, close to me

Dance with me?                             Will you take me? 
Will you dance with me?                Will you take me? 
Baby, holding you close                 To a place where 
Makes me feel free                         I can awlays be. 

Close to you, close to me               Close to you.
Close to you, close to me
Hearts between us 
Yield to love and glee

If You Believe

If You Believe

If you believe emotions are not just a women?s thing
If you believe a relationship is based on trust, truth and openness
If you believe intimacy is part of a sacred union 
If you believe a friendship is more than just communication

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe a kiss is the ingredient for passion 
If you believe holding hands is the beginning of a spiritual bond
If you believe in supporting the one you love is through a simple act of kindness
If you believe that compassion is not just through words but action

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe embracing your inner child helps to grow emotionally
If you believe jumping in a puddle while it?s pouring out is ok
If you believe in poetry of the heart is the intimacy of the soul
If you believe that your heart beat is the pulse to life everyday

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe that through your eyes you can see your lover?s soul
If you believe that intimacy is not just a sexual thing
If you believe through the act of compassion we can heal a wounded heart
If you believe in forgiveness and are not afraid to cry

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe in everyday blessings
If you believe in the diversity of creativity
If you believe that gods love is the universal language
If you believe in the strength a family provides and its ties

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

My Love is Like a Frankenstein

Unbearably, oh! So terribly-
Have I ruined my only chance?
But sing with me sad melodies;
Let us ponder while we dance
And find our reasons, somewhere cold-
Buried in all we fail to find
Lo, thy Heart; to have- to hold!
Never could I be that kind

To be so gentle, as not to break
For all my Love, a Monster makes!

Vasava An untold story 1/Many

Vasava
An untold story 


The story as Vasavadutta originally conceived and written by my late father Dr.Amar Nath 
Kapoor*  in Hindi many many years back, but Accidentally the major portion of his hand 
written manuscript got lost with many of his other hand written manuscripts during his 
lifetime itself. He had a deep attachment for this unique story belonging to the period of 
Guam Buddha 559 BC. 
Since I had heard him reciting this story when the manuscript was present I am trying to 
rewrite this unique story, as was wished by my late father. Hope my poetry soup friends 
would find it a unique story portraying a beautiful character of a dancer Vasavadutta or 
Vasava, who was an embodiment of beauty. Her life changed completely when she came to 
see Gautama Buddha.

I am rewriting his idea and story in English and hope to have your both types of comments 
as you find and feel, as it is always precious for me.

Vasava
An untold story 						Part 01/Many


She was a woman of splendid and unparallel beauty
Lavishly bestowed and blessed on her by Nature
Her intoxicating and lovely youth,  had sparked  
Her beauty and enchanting ness far and wide on Earth

On the beauty of her face and hanging hair locks
Many and mighty had sacrificed and burnt like moths
To see only a glimpse of her dance and to hear her voice
Many lost their entire wealth, only to enjoy her dance

Brahma* had labored hard, while shaping her beauty
Her enchanting eyes use to glitter, like beautiful sapphires
Which were studded in the golden cups of her lovely eyes
Attracting everyone, who came in the closeness of her eyes

During her dance performances, her eyes use to sprinkle 
A passionate intoxicating wine, to charm the audience
Her spectators never appears to stop drinking that wine
To get completely lost themselves in the charms of her dance

Finding Fantasy

"I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination"

Light
Darkness
Collision 
Fantasy world
Opens up mystical vision and then
Allows oracles to see Wilde beasts
In here only
Close the door
Behind
You

Fly fast
Fly free
Flutter
Wings
Wild eyed wanderer just with me
We are etched beautifully you see

Distant past is behind the locked door now
Eternal fantasy you dwell
So Magically

You don't have to go back ever again dear, we crossed it
The next threshold is yours to decide
So Faithfully

We are where the elves and dragons dance love
They congregate here nightly, care to dance this last one
Romantically?

A rose everyday

I promised you a rose everyday,
But sometimes it refuses to bloom.
Then I hold you and start to sway,
But you stop and claim it is too soon,
Yet telling me to wait and stay
For we shall dance again after noon.
And I? What can I even say?
I am bound to you, not to the moon.
Since man was made of cheap clay
And woman was the kinder boon,
I have two choices: either obey today
or kiss you away from this swoon .

Dance With Me

How long must I be in the dark room?
Staring into emptiness
Thy feet is treasured
Roll on the floor with me
Expressing love intoxicated 
with sexual touch

Dance with me my fair lady
Search thy heart
And flow with the rhythm
Jingle the maracas
It does not matter where we stand
The music of our heart will remain the same

Dance with me 
Oh! Dance with me	
For the sweet scented aroma
Of our ageing love is gaining strength  
The grope is sensational
The atmosphere is evoking
And the feeling is mutual 
Hold me tight                                                                                                 
Stroke lovingly thy hand 
Through the soft part of my skin
Tapping thy feet steadily
To the rhythm of my heart

Groove me under the disco light
And let’s spend night 
Under the moon light
Dancing the hours of darkness out
Let our bodies welcomes each other
Lemme run my hand
Through thy curly hair
Touch thy fragile skin
Interact harmoniously with thy heart
Flow with me
Follow the rhythm
Side by side 
Let’s groove on
With the melody of our heart
Harmonize with the beat 
Move my coeur
Tickle me with thy appealing looks
Let’s join our hands together
Driving each other to the dancing floor
Dance with me, 
Oh! Dance with me my fair lady.

Of galvanize

She clung to me, trembling and cold as the
Thunder roared with anger and the lightening
Struck, its violent brightness illuminating the
Old barn, illustrating the glittering wetness 
Of her soft silky skin, she jumped and I held 
Her close

As the lighting struck again I saw her eyes
Telling me she felt protected and as the rain
Drops danced on rusting sheets of galvanize
And the winds try to sent this place to a 
Cruel demise I kissed the sparkling raindrops 
That rested on her beckoning eyes

As the favor of her breast rest against my 
Chest its protruding firmness sending waves 
Of fervor through the corridors of my being 
My hands explore the sculpture that is her
Body, touching her in every special place
She trembles speaks not a word but holds my 
Face with adoring grace

As we lay amidst the bales of hay, I taste the 
Liquid of her mouth now one with the lingering 
Drops of rain and I feel the pulse of her parted
Thighs the oneness of bodies now in rhythm 
With the night

And as the heavens opened and the thunder
Roared the winds blow against the old cedar door 
and in the soggy moons light 
Raindrops dance on rusting sheets of galvanize 
And lightning flashed as if taking snapshots of
Time as it stood
It is that moment she says that she knew of
Motherhood

Save The Last Dance

I saved you the last dance,
So let's dance the night away,
And wish that the music never ever stops,

I keep hoping and praying that this music never stops,
And my feet never get tired to dance,
And your mind never thinks of walking away,

I felt your heart beat from miles away,
So gentle and in sync with mine and it never ever stops,
In your embrace i found my music so let's dance,

Tonight lest dance the night away until the music stops,

SIZE

Sometimes I feel small in this world, in this vast universe
But then sometimes when I’m sitting on that bench in the park with know one around watching the leaves dance in the breeze, the air hitting my face . .   
I feel big on an imaginable scale, it reminds me of all those minuet atoms all put together to make me 

Enabling me to watch those leaves dance in the breeze!   
Enabling me to walk in that park!
Sit on that bench!

It’s easy to forget how special we are and how everything in this world is special if you look close enough. The one thing size has taught me is to think and when we think and i mean actually THINK . .  amazing things can be achieved.

When You Believe

When you believe emotions are not just a women’s thing
When you believe a relationship is based on trust, truth and openness
When you believe intimacy is part of a sacred union 
When you believe a friendship is more than just communication

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

When you believe a kiss is the ingredient for passion 
When you believe holding hands is the beginning of a spiritual bond
When you believe in supporting the one you love is through a simple act of kindness
When you believe that compassion is not just through words but action

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

When you believe embracing your inner child helps to grow emotionally
when you believe jumping in a puddle while it’s pouring out is ok
When you believe in poetry of the heart is the intimacy of the soul 
When you believe that your heart beat is the pulse to life everyday

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

When you believe that through your eyes you can see your lover’s soul
When you believe that intimacy is not just a sexual thing
When you believe through the act of compassion we can heal a wounded heart
When you believe in forgiveness and are not afraid to cry

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

When you believe in everyday blessings
When you believe in the diversity of creativity
When you believe that gods love is the universal language
When you believe in the strength a family provides and its ties

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

LAST DANCE

“This hospital room is a prison cell!
Why can’t I die in MY bed, take me home!
Sweetheart, don’t cry. I didn’t mean to yell,
But to sit here and wait? I’d rather roam!”

“Let me gaze at the dusk! Enjoy a steak!
Watch a football game or drive to the Falls!
Death is a moron, he made a mistake!
And for just one more day, I’d beg and crawl.”

“Take care of yourself, Dear, don’t live for work,
Life’s too short, those ‘golden years’ are a lie,
Be kind to strangers, but ignore the jerks,
Take time to laugh, because the days will fly.”

“Where did I put my pen? No. Don’t bother,
My mind’s a muddle, the puzzle’s too hard,
This crossword book I’ll tuck in my covers,
Forget that checkerboard, that deck of cards.”

“I’m tired of this dumb game,” he then said,
Carefully, I asked, “What game is that, Dad?”
His look sent darts. “Don’t toy with the near dead!
I’ve fought a good fight, gave all that I had.”

I looked in his eyes, saw pride, love and fear,
“Dad, would you like to dance, right here and now?
I know in that gown, I might see your rear,
But keep it slow, and you don’t need to bow.” 

“Chip off the block,” he extolled, then guffawed,
“Help me up, Buttercup. This I can do.
Yes, I’m weak, but I can still shake a paw,
Of course, you nilly, I will dance with you.”

We moved together and he held me tight,
Slowly we shuffled, my father and me,                                         
“Hey,” I whispered, “don’t be scared of the night.
It’s just a doorway to eternity.”

He held me closer. “How’d you get so smart?
My daughter, my life, you do what you can,
I leave happy, for you have a good heart,
Just promise, you’ll remember your old man.”





*In honour of my father. I do remember my old man, and often, Dad. This is a compilation of the conversations we had in the last few days he had in palliative care, and yes, I did dance with my dad the day before he died, and yes, we joked all the time. When he said, "I'm tired of this game." I was worried I was misunderstanding him, since he'd been working on crossword puzzles and we'd played other board games. It is one of the hardest conversations I've ever had in my life, saying goodbye, trying to reassure someone who was always the strong one. It is also one of the most precious memories in my life.

Know This My Lover

Know This My Lover

Darling, pray that our love does not fade
 the flower of desire blooms in a deep blush
Amongst passions planted and firmly laid
 in secret interludes and whispering hush

My sweetheart, sing again our heart's song
 with that angel voice so Heavenly made
Laced with sweet purity , flowers so strong
 rainbow colors with stems of the greenest jade

My lover, remember the secret places that we love
 the deep wooded cabin , the cliff hanging above
Rejoice in the climb to such heavenly heights
 the sweet moans that shattered the silent night

My woman, know your heart and love are returned
My princess, our passion forever will be burned

Robert J. Lindley , 07-20-2014

This just woke me up from sleep. Had to bang it down 
before I forget any of it!!
Has been a couple years since this happened and that 
write only my wife has read as it is too racy to opening 
reveal!
This one is much tamer, which means I am either getting
 older, lazier or more complacent!
None of the three inspires me but something sure inspired 
this late night , wake the hell up write!!!!

Each morning , a white symphony

Each morning, a white symphony 
wakes up the same melancholy, 
Cold sun and the white which will burn…
Dreams and the dust filling the urn

From the back of the time`s pony
Each morning, a white symphony; 
The wind`s instruments by the sea;
Violins on sky`s balcony;                                                                                
                                            
All seasons`tribute in advance:
Winter with its full dress entrance;
Each morning, a white symphony; 
Hearts`s piano found harmony.

Hope established its colony;
Kids with carols and happy eyes.
Soon, they make a palace from ice.
Each morning,a white symphony.

Your Fairy Tale

In your dreams, what do you see?
Do the innocent scream, is it the demons glee?
To the rescue he'll ride, oh what a charmer.
Those before his sword died, for he's your knight in shining armor.
The sugar plum fairies, dance in your head.
Hear as the wind carries, sounds of the newly wed.
This place is your own, your beautiful lie.
You'll never be alone, just look to the night sky.
Watch the stars fall, and watch the moon rise.
Is it the love you saw, reflecting from my eyes?
Will you take my hand, and dance among the stars?
Will you help me stand, and erase our burning scars?
Raise your head, look to the singing clouds.
We'll fall upon your bed, for sorrow's not allowed.
Close your eyes, it's not time to wake.
We'll erase the lies, and we'll never break.
Shall we run, across the field of a single rose?
This dream cannot be undone, for I'm the one you chose.
Please don't change your thoughts, please don't my dear.
It is love that you taught, to rid us of our fear.
Promise me this, you'll not think of the end.
Just one last kiss, should help the world mend.
Memories now clear, taking me away.
Don't fall a tear, He'll come back one day.
As  you start to stir, awake from your sleep.
I'll make sure, angels continue to weep.
Did your lullaby dream, turn into horrifying scares?
Please do not scream, I'll destroy your nightmares.
Say it once more, "We shall dance without fright."
Our spirits will soar, for I'm your unrelenting knight.
I will not fail, you'll not see my death.
This is your fairy tale, so don't hold your breath.

Dance with me under the rain

As the rain falls down from the velvet sky, take my hand and we will walk a while. Let us bathe under the pouring rain and let the pain flow into the stream. Draw out your arms let us play, take one more step, stay close to me. Squeeze me tighter kiss me tenderly, I just can’t help but feel love. Let’s get together and dance in the rain. Spin me around, twirling away the sorrow, dance with me under the rain I’m crazy and I made you insane Laughing, joking under the rain let’s forget our troubles, just dance. Dance with me under the rain. Cheryl Aldea Lets Dance Contest – nette onclaud

Poetry Groups and Aaron Jumpers

Red checkered carpet and mahogany wood dominate
Guinness, beer and wine stand politely 
Reflective 
The eclectic gathering of minds and smiles
Litter the room as left over christmas baubles 
While one voice swoons across the ceiling to fall on ravenous  ears

Smiles in therapy 
And memory slip over the rickety stiles of childhood
As eyes wide shut dance or skipping hypnotically 
As an exuberant uncontrollable child on a windy day 
Create their own beautiful masterpieces from the words lain for all to dream

A sigh
A scratch
A rustling peanut packet to distract
The odd glance searching the sea of eyes for recognition, acceptance, hope or a mere smile

Where aaron jumpers distract
Why do aaron jumpers make one think of catalogues, hearty meals and  most of all love
The love of huge warm arms swinging you around in adoration
Sheer exhilaration at really being in love
Why do aaron jumpers and 
A scottish poets words create 
Grey seas frothy cream licking the rocky skirt of the lighthouse 
Red and white solid safety which 
Perfectly beckons me


And the poem did that and the mind did follow joyously 
The words laid down by 
A man died two years ago
Why did he have to die 2010 just before i heard of him
And now i must search his words in past tense
And almost hero worship
The man from Edinburgh and the visions he gave me 
By the sea 

I shed one tear



-------------------------------------------------
Plz Note
This is about my visit tonight to a poetry group and how reading and your own imagination dance arm in arm.....
Every poets words are half the painting to be completed by the fresh eyes which read on...my theory anyway

It Takes You To Tango

I takes you to tango 
Buenos Aires! bravo! bravo! 
In front of me is a sinful woman 
Catches the deepest soul of every man. 

Your mesmerizing looks give me admiration 
The scent of your neck enters another sensation 
When our body meets it gives me satisfaction 
Can 't help to stop this emotion .

Your fitted dress exposed your hotness 
Your sexy back no man can resist 
Cutted dress give us your sexy legs 
Urge to touch you with a fire of grace .

Every time you moves your sexy hips 
I wanna close to you and bite your lips 
When you extend that perfect legs 
Can 't stop me touching yours by my own legs.

The way you touch makes my body shiver 
I wanna hold you tight closer 
One chance to make this love deeper 
I wanna dance tango with you forever.

Dark night Prince Charming

Its a dark night prince charming
It hits me like a bullet to the chest
Every time I think of you 
My heart pitters and patters and 
I can’t seem to find rest
Every breath I breathe shortens and quickens
The air around me fills with static and electricity 
Every time you step into the same room as I
My eyes are glued
I cant move
Every step closer to you
Sends my heart pounding
My head spinning
I lose all sense of logic
My nerves tingle at the lightest touch
Your hand pulls mine
And I am in your arms
The music fills the room
People close in around us
But all I can see
Is you and I
Reality fades and the dream envelops me
Dancing away with you
Time stands still
Until at last 
It has come time to go home
For my carriage has turned into a pumpkin
And a princess I am no more
Until the next eve shall I see you
My prince charming 
Will you wait for me

Stone Horse

Stone Horse. 

A cold night and it had been snowing, a rarity
where I live, amongst the olive cope a stone
that looks like a horse´s head, it still had snow 
on its head and neck, though snow on ground
had thawed the grass was shimmering green.
I brushed off snow and patted its slender neck
This act of concern brought astonishment, 
the horse sprung to life, a grey beautiful mare, 
it began grazing on moist pasture which, it had
been unable to eat for five hundred years,
quite ignoring me who had brought it to life.

Concerto of the Enchanting Night

Concerto of the Enchanting Night
 Arabic Poem by: Fadhil Aziz Farman *
 Translated Into English by:
 Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
 =========================

You suggest the songs
And leave me deep
In the splendor of the rhythm and melody. 
Drag my day out of the dream to wakefulness 
I have not known 
But the philosophy of dreams 
In all my days.

You suggest the songs
And leave me floating in a wave of fragrance 
Showered down By Lynol Ritchie 
With his love songs 
Or by Yanni with his tunes.
 
And dance
Do the tango 
Do the waltz 
Do the ballet or the jerk dance
Dance as you please 
Or spin around the Earth-pole,
O symbol of amazing taste, 
Rouser of lightning in the sky,
And crown of all beauties.
 
Here I am intoxicated
By the melody pulsating in your figure 
And by the bashful roses 
On your cheeks,
O sweet wine in my chalice and my vats.
 
You suggest the songs
And at the end of the round
Put your head on my chest, 
O child of my poems, 
And listen to my heart singing them 
With the virgin tears of joy 
Flowing down the violin’s cheek.
 
You suggest the songs
You suggest the melody 
And hint the sweet words
They’ll come to you 
Then hold me to your chest like a child.
I will need your ear 
To whisper to you 
All that baffles my heart 
And my tongue 

You suggest the songs
And strew them
Such as roses 
On the desert of my life.
What remains for us 
Of all our years, 
But joy
Strewn like roses
And like dew
On the seconds?

My Lady

My lady in waiting, is my true love of heart,
She loves my moves, while my kisses she desires.
With her kiss in return, turns my passion into fires
Her eyes do smile; each time it comes, we must part.
She and I cannot wait, for our revisit to start.
Our love is sung by so many relevant choirs.
As the jesters dance so; heavenly playing upon lyres,
While the kings artists, prepare us in immortal art.

My lover holds my hand and my soul is in bliss.
We dance to our music, while the fairies chant.
She looks in my eyes, desiring one more kiss.
No one seeks to destroy, our love in any rant.
For the success of this ardor, could not ever miss.
Our hearts locked, bonded, as we both pant.

Through Your Soul

Pardon me for this intrusion
But after all it’s my illusion

So I guess it’s up to me
Who and what I shall be

So as I crack another grin
Over the situation I am in

Read these words of my truth
We are as old as our youth

Age is certainly no reason why
Grab a dream and kiss the sky

Winner is I have been told
He who holds all the Gold

Let me add one small detail
I think gold will melt in hell

I traded in my Midas touch
A pot of Gold for a crutch

That’s all ok I don’t even care
I earned the grey in my hair

I earned the wisdom in my truth
Making Poetry my fountain of youth

I reflect on what my life shall be
Grab a dream and dance with me

We will dance from star to star
Embracing who and what we are

Maybe we will stop by the moon
So our dance won’t end to soon

Kicking us up a little dust
Shaking off a little rust

Then back to earth for a while
I sure do love the way you smile

Eyes dancing with pure delight
As they meet with mine tonight

Take my breath and words away
Tell me my love what could I say

Give me love or give me death
Come closer let me taste your breath

Let me feel your every move
Soft, slow, tender and smooth

Come explode with me today
As through your soul I softly play

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

Country Field

I wanna go shoot some beer cans,
light up the night,and drink the moon’s shine. 
I wanna see you twirl, in that summer dress
kiss your neck, while headlights burn through my heart. 
Fireflies’ll get dizzy when we dance between their flurry,
We’ll fall on grandma’s quilt and stare at the stars.
It can be so bright in a country field,
when it’s not so lonely…
And your smile, is bringin’ me home. 
Those muddy tracks were worth it;
got us stuck in each other’s arms. 
You’ve got me thinkin’… 
That a city girl, with a country heart
ain’t so bad.. 
You got me thinkin’..
that the sun might rise…
and I won’t even notice..
cos’ your starlight is just 
as bright, as any blue eyed country 
sky, I’ve ever seen. 
So, lets pour a little more 
moonshine in these cups, 
and dance til’ tomorrow. 
We’ll worry bout’ gettin’ home
when the day comes a-knockin’..
but I don’t wanna think about anything else,
but the smile pressed against my cheek. 
This country field is heaven,
and you’re the Angel ridin’ shotgun. 
Holdin’ me still, on this buck-wild 
adventure….
makin’ me feel like bein a cowboy
ain’t bein’ lost.. 
Like bein’ in this field, 
is bein’ at home,
your arms…
the rest that I’ve been looking for. 
This field, the home, I’ve always had…
but never thought, I was searchin’ for..

If She'd Say 'Yes'

If she'd say "yes",
I'd escort her to the floor.
And with a little luck,
I'd ask her to dance once more.
If we could make some magic,
Or find some 'chemistry',
I'd ask her for her number
And invite her to go out with me...
Then she said "yes".

If she'd say "yes",
I'd invite her out again,
And with a little luck,
We'd be something more than friends.
If we could make more magic,
Or find more 'chemistry',
We'd be seen as an item...
Almost a couple, informally...
Then she said "yes".

If he'd say "yes",
And blesses me to take her hand,
Then blessed with so much luck,
I'd ask her to take my hand.
We would keep on making magic,
Surpassing 'chemistry'!
We'd discuss having children---
building together a family...
They both said "yes".

If she'd say "I do",
When our Preacher says the words,
He'll wish us both much luck
As our new couple moves forward.
We would keep on makng magic,
Keeping alive 'chemistry';
We'd talk about forever,
And a pink or blue baby nursery...
Then she said "I DO!".

Dance of love

I look in  your  dark  eyes and  I see the light
And the gleam of love so  indestructible
I give you all I am  and I hold you  tight 
Only with you my dreams are achievable.


We are within   our  imperfect universe 
'Cause so  deep within we can have everything
We are as one with time running in  reverse
You are  my desire and you taste  my  heart  string.

You penetrate me and you change me forever
You  can  take everything  and give  everything
It's a madness when my feelings you devour
We eat each other we feel like exploding


It is a connection between soul and  body
We dance the feelings , the tears,  and the passion.
In the rhythm of stars  love  need to embody
Dance  intricately intertwines our vision.

We throw  our bodies language in romance
Love is like a star  losing its mass and  ray
You push the limit to ecstasy  and trance
And dance my dreams there for being the same clay .

slow dance

The sad moments are the ones that
seem advises they are the moments 
that are happy ones but just like that a 
romantic moment for some one is the 
worst moment for you.
i know a slow dance isn't going 
to kill me right away but it kills 
by seeing someone dance like if
they just starting to love again while I 
start to miss you when I JUST STARTED 
TO FORGET YOU!!!!!!
sadly i have deep in my heart i wish to 
be able to slow dance with another but 
I cant when i want  you to be my

Love Spell Unknown

This breath taking me out
Flutters upon your weight of lung
Lucid lingering, we dance each other's flux

Deeper still, your heart revealed
I know the secrets you fashion still
Pressed upon the centuries of days

My love settles in a place unknown
Alone building what I will see eventually
When you come back, we will be free

As we dance upon sheaths of sound
A lurid spell casts from frozen creeks
I know your heart will unearth ecstatic peaks

Your Vanity

Misery weighs down your eyes, as you begin to read.
In this dance of lies, you'll forever lead.
If you can't stand, I'll see you on the other side.
Take my hand, for now the son has died.
I'll reach under the skin, and steal away your disease.
I'll fight and win, as Death becomes a tease.
I fell into fantasy, as I feel your touch.
Swallow your vanity, for you cry too much.
The string of white lights, a full moon casting.
The shadowed nights, are never lasting.
Forever wandering, these cold dark seas.
The world squandering, crying the harshest pleas.
The voiceless won't rest, as they continue squalling.
On this endless quest, I continue falling.
Fall children, dance with every death boy and girl.
The monster will fight again, yet we're all so coy.
Lets fall to our knees, and begin to pray.
Do they hear my pleas, down together we'll lay.
Unrelenting omnipotence, nuturing malevolence.
Angels and Demons, bow before the other.
The unknowing sons, begin to kill their brother.
Leave for me, the crumbling headstones.
Ignore and leave me be, for death has shown.
Leave me to sleep, in this desecrated sanctuary.
In these dreams I weep, yet I tarry.
Will you be my love, will we watch the world burn?
What are the thoughts of, for the dead forever yearn.
No I don't want to die, no not tonight.
I can no longer try, I don't want to fall into the light.
As I climb the stairs, I reach toward the stars.
The heart tears, as it feels the scars.
I begin my ivy climbing, for the voiceless call.
It's the matter of timing, for who will begin their fall?

Another dance

Don’t leave me waiting for another dance,
Bring your lips close to mine and let them touch:
A kiss must not be answered with silence, 
Just a heartbeat before I ask for a new chance: 
Show me how the angels taught you to dance. 

We do not move on the same soft cloud
Where you discovered the first dancing steps,
as the stars are flipping round and round,
The angel’s chorus is listened near and loud: 
You left your wings buried on a lost cloud. 

Which melody did we start to follow?
There is one music played in the hall, 
You are crowned by the moon’s glow,
And I will not need to wait until tomorrow, 
Your heart sings and my heart will follow.

WHO WILL DANCE

WHO WILL DANCE
 All of my life
I have been searching 
As i swim across the great river
Of a faired and tinted Negros 
In all corners of the cardinal

Over and over, my heart beat
Unto my bone that lies in the valley of bones 
Every eyes seem to open and close 
But this one tends to open widely 
Many bones i have picked along the way 
in a search for my lost ribs

Gallantly with good gesticulation
 my mouth talks like a parrot 
Even deep into the nerve senses
no one was found to dance to the beat of my 
heart
and all of my eyed eyes tends to close in the 
twilight.
In searching and researching 
My legs is set to search
For as many repeated times 
Until i find the one that must dance 
To the beat of my heart...

Winter's Snowy Season

The blue turned grey turned to blankets of white,
Midwinter’s shroud that mantled field and town,
A breath of north resounds across the night,
To leave a frosty sparkle on winter’s gown.
Beneath the moon the fairies come to dance,
While dreamy eyes rejoice upon the scene,
As bow and fiddle strike up their romance,
The mind recalls this place where love had been.
I watched them dance an elfin jig or two,
My heart, meanwhile, languished in years gone by,
When you and I would dance all dressed in blue,
Then share a kiss beneath the winter sky.
Those wistful times that never fade away,
Returning bed and there beside you lay.

Silly Little Girl

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I'm not perfect. I'm only human.
When I have a bad day, I get moody and
Sometimes, I take it out on you.
But I do the best I can do.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I write too much, but I can't stop.
I refuse to pretend to be someone I'm not.
When I'm home alone, my favorite thing to do
Is turn up my radio, sing in my brush, and dance around the room.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I have a million different dreams.
I want to be a million things.
I need ten more lifetimes
To accomplish what I have in mind.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like. 
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I sing too much and dance in the car.
My friends are my world and we usually go too far,
But we're just silly little kids who love to have fun.
We won't let your dark clouds cover our sun.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I wish I could change the problems I see,
But I'm just one person. I'm only me.
I'm still going to work and I will try,
But I need you to help me kiss these problems goodbye.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

I'm the biggest dork you will ever meet.
I laugh too much and love to sleep.
I have my own style and I hate my hair.
If you don't like me, that's ok. I really don't care.

I'm just a silly little girl
Dreaming of a better world.
I smile when I hear a song I like.
I laugh when I watch a girl fight.

IF FANTASY WERE ONLY FOR DREAMERS

If fantasy were only for dreamers,
reality wouldn't send shivers down the spine
and considering our state of things...
one consolation remains: look back and smile!


Who hasn't heard of those simple times
when merry people drank, sang and danced...
carrying no worries or fears in their heads?
Haven't they wished to get back what they had? 


If fantasy were only for dreamers who 
invent a world that makes one see things hidden from sight:
how would lovers dream as poets do,
if no whispers were sent into the awesome Universe at night?  


I live for one scope to discover, admire and create,
but they are others who don't see beauty in anything...
their mission is not to love, but to destroy and hate; 
who would lead a shallow life without fantasy and feeling?

Ballet In The Sky

The whole air is dancing-
     Ravenous thunder rumbles
        Lighting curls her jagged bolts
          flashing like gold through amythyst, sapphire skies

I'll not allow your image to spoil my view
   With you-rain would cry it's droplets 
          as it mumbled whispers to my haunted heart
               Oft' times-rolling clouds rumbled their voices in my soul

                                                                 *~*

Now, I dance in scarlet flames that spark across the heavens
   gliding thru turquoise skies with copious clouds... 
       that delicately clothe my body             
           pirouetting gracefully ...
               to the peaceful harmonic rhythm of rolling thunder

My flesh no longer aches for your barren touch
   I shall not desire your hand opon my beautiful rain drenched skin
       whetted now with golden silken tears

My memory quickens...
      I no longer remember your face or hunger for your sterile love
         I'll not dance to your chaotic rhythm

Nature baited me with her sweet breath
     Embraced me in her loving arms-
         singing her gentle rain of tears

You...
    baited me with your hook of selfish love

My heart now dances with another
     One who bathes my soul in fertile soil
         He feeds me with his hungry, selfless love...

You...
   fed me worms with your stingy heart

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
I Hear...  calling
Whispering out my name

As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As my Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night Twilights

Just until midnight
For when the clock strikes
Then I must leave
Quickly… For I must go.. away
That way no-one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... 
just a dream
Or is it?
For Dreams do come True

But.. I shall dance among the Stars 
Singing Praises unto my king
My Lord.. my Savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly’s in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars
In Our Heavenly home
Knowing now 
Tis be  shall never be alone…
Praise always be
To our everlasting king

Come to Jesus

Vasava - An Untold Story 14/Many


Vasava – 
An untold story                                                                        14/Many

				

Udiyan knew what his friend King Suyodhan, had briefed him about Vasava
That she would not compromise, on her determinations with anyone
Even if she is offered, the temptation of a kingdom,
It was enough an indication for Udiyan, that she would not succumb
To his rising passions and ever increasing charms and lust for her


Because of Vasava’s determinations, not to get involved
In physical relations, passions and body lusts, which may make her weak
And may become the main cause of her skill deterioration, 
Of her long cherished and preserved Music, Art, Dance or other devotions
She therefore decided to put a restriction, on all such alluring temptations

Her opinion that her self control, on the rising waves of passions and lust
Can only take her to those extra ordinary heights, where skills becomes perfections
As she has yet to attain the loftiest height of her skills
And her goal was far, far away from where she was standing
In spite of holding a rare prime position in the kingdom of Magadh**

She therefore had started loving her music and art
More than anything in the world, and got herself so much involved,
In attaining the perfection in her dance and singing arts,
That an inner beauty began to grow, glow and shine in her
With the shining of her dancing steps and her enchanting singing arts

The enthralling image of Vasava, was hovering on the mind of Udiyan
Removing every other image, for the time being from his mind and heart
Udiyan could not close his eyes, even for a moment
And passed his entire night sleeplessly in weaving his future with Vasava
As he was feeling that without her, life had no charms and meaning for him

Even the kingdom of Ujjain, appears to be of no attraction for him
Without Vasava being the queen, of his heart and his kingdom
Every thing seems to be a hallow or vacant like a void,
Even his own life, appeared to be not of his own,
Without, the sweet presence of his dream likes reality Vasava

A Love Filled Dwelling

A Love Filled Dwelling



I sent my love to your waiting heart
 with hopes we live and never part
You sang back such sweet replies
 banishing dark clouds from my skies

I sent my great worries and cares
 we cried , lets climb those stairs
Up we went into a love entwined cloud
 no dire problems or worries allowed

You sent hope and glory into my life
 promises of faithful love as my wife
You then made our romance a blessed joy
 gifting us our treasure, our little boy

Never darling, shall I ever dare to forget
shared paradise came because you, you are the best

'She Danced With Me First'

A father.

Is a daughter's partner.

Their Life is a dance.

Where he only gets one chance.

To lead her across the floor.

To turn her away from wrong doors.

Sometimes it twists and turns.

Both hearts burn.

With pain.

Then it's ok again.

They just sway.

The dance is slow.

Away they go.

Smiling.

And laughing.

Then another change.

The steps, the beat all rearrange.

But they find a way.

In time they stay.

With the beat.

Their eyes meet.

He couldn't love her more.

As they move across the floor.

A man steps in, says dance with me.

Now she's his wife to be.

Dad lets go.

Goes with the flow.

He doesn't hate or curse.

He looks at him, and says, remember she danced with me first.

Two Left Feet



I don't want to dance Daddy
you'll step on my feet
I haven't any um-pa-pa
dancing's not my treat.

If I could stand on your shoes Dad
then we'd slide cross the floor
I'd know we'd do it, oh so right,
and Mother would adore.

I don't want to dance my Dear
you'll step on my feet.
we haven't any um-pa-pa
dancing's not my treat

Oh Daddy said our little girl child
can I stand on your shoes
I can not dance a lick you see
and Baby has the blues.

Fifty years have come and gone
stepping on my feet,
on starlit nights in our bedroom
your feet make mine complete.

" Song of Salome "

Off we fly my salohmay...
'Til our wings do fail...
Higher higher into day...
Aloft our golden sail...

Tethered so at lands below...
Far too long as we both know...
Now time walks within our path...
Rather than we in aftermath...

So smile now my lady fine...
Up up we'll dance & spin...
'Round 'round & down the line...
'Tis love we so shall win...

So said he that captain then...
To heart thus calmed it so...
With me this wraith shall go...
Simple task... I'll tell her when...

Next they met was storm a'deck...
Her hands flung 'round that captain's neck...
Naught for love this stranglehold...
'Twas wrath o'her... he'd been too bold...

Calmed thus by wave well spent...
His lady told him in his ear...
'Twas not her wonder where love went...
How it found her captain dear...

Long she told him had she known...
Her captain destined her shore blown...
'Twas thus so met were now they...
Fate so then took holiday...

For year & year so ran the sun...
'Til he was sage & she still fun...
Silver where once blonde had been...
Time lost well amid love's din...

Now again high aloft...
Winds warm & clouds so soft...
'Tis heard oft well such gossamer tune...
From bluest depths of wandering moon...

Off we fly my salohmay...
'Til our wings do fail...
Higher higher into day...
Aloft our golden sail...

So smile now my lady fine...
Up up we'll dance & spin...
'Round 'round & down the line...
'Tis love we so shall win...

A Perfect Glow

A Perfect Glow


A perfect glow wraps your sweet face
aroma of flowers and sexy lace,
hint of our coming embrace

A romantic vision appears before my eyes
images of naked bodies soon arise,
promises of morning skies

A bliss awaits this enchanted night
vows of passion and delight,
sings of our true light

A memory soon to be so lovingly made
tender waters we wade,
intimate joy so well played

A perfect thought stirs our loving hearts
as night's interlude starts,
beautiful sex , off the charts!!

Just burst out of me and had to get it down now...

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND

Against the indigo velvet skies 
The sweetly scented nightly breeze 
Sends leaves falling, rustling 
Allowing moonlight thru the trees  
 
Through curtains softly billowing 
The moonlight steals its furtive glance 
Flirting with silky ebony shadows
Performing their nightly ritual dance 
 
On the other side of the wind 
Whispers softly echo in her mind 
Beckoning her… 
To listen to their voice 
Telling her his love she’ll surely find  
 
The wind chimes in spiral curves 
A moment that’s timeless stirs her soul 
To a crystalline awakening in her heart 
Welcoming imbuing intrusions to console 

In quiet moments she breathes him in 
His hand in hers, feelings linger 
A graceful dance to walk a path 
Feeling his  touch upon her fingers 

A trail of tears tinged with sighs 
Thoughts of him entrench the dark 
A restless soul needing warmth 
In quiet moments he invades her heart 
Will she find him once again… 
On the other side of the wind?

All Thanks to Him

Walking down the empty streets,
In truth already done,
I've lost myself in dreams again as I sit in school,
I sit and sit and sit and sit,
But not a word absorbed,
It doesn't matter how long I stay,
I'm not here at all.

He laughs and laughs all at something I said,
I smile, grin in responce to him.
He's shown me not to draw from people,
Taught me how to be myself.
To dance and listen,
Learn and turn,
But no longer in my head,
Now I dance to live, and learn!

Mating of the Rich and Famous

I once walked into my backyard
and found two slugs mating in a bucket
I had just learned how slugs go about mating, 
or trust-I would have been rightly confused

Here hangs a long line of slime, almost a foot long
and then halfway down the thread of slime, it begins to twist, to look like a strand of DNA
I am fascinated beyond comprehension
What am I seeing, I mean I KNOW what Im seeing- But WHAT am I seeing??

These two gelatinous creatures, that I admit Ive never given much thought to before
are forming the most intricate, delicate dance of fornication
This is too much for my mind,
and so I just sat and looked on in awe...this lasted for awhile so I unfortunately wasnt there for the seperation.

Now, Im lost in the realm of procreation, its consumed in my head every time I go back and imagine those delicate slugs.

Cats. Big, small, lions, cheetahs, tigers..I believe they all mate the same way. 
A female goes into estrus, and males come rolling in from far and wide. Marking every guidepost along the way, announcing his arrival.
The Lioness lays comfortably in the shade, waiting to be presented her King.
And the brawl ensues. Maybe hours or days. Screaming and slashing, boasting and threatening.
And finally when the lesser males are too worn out, too ashamed, given up, deflated...
The big man with all the prowess grabs his woman with his teeth, mounting her, her resisting..testing if she approves.
They are loud and vicious when they finally get down to it. And persistent.
Days go by, they barely eat, they are barely concious of their surroundings, hormones driving them.
They mate, they rest, they fight, they mate, they rest.
And then its over just like nothing ever happened. And shes left alone to gestate the next generation.

Birds. Birds vary...dogs and cats can be predictable when it comes to making babies.
But birds have different rules. Alot of birds mate for life and are monogomous...better than humans at it too.
Swans are particularly faithful, and heartbroken when their mates die.
There is a type of male bird that will spend hours upon hours building elaborate, beautiful nests,
collecting pretty, colorful things...making a comfortable space to get it on with his lady.
And then the females browse the different nests looking for the perfect living space for a very important event.
Some birds dance, they show off every beautiful move they have to earn the heart and eggs of a woman.
And we all know peacocks. The males are burdened with being beautiful, trying to catch a pretty birds eye. Quite opposite of us peoples, huh?

I could go on...but just a few more points on procreation.
Penguins, males keeping the eggs, almost starving to death to make sure they hatch.
Crocodiles burying their eggs just offshore, and just waiting to take out predators looking for yummy croc eggs.
Octopi will do some craziness where the female starves herself to death to make sure her young hatch alive.
Male seahorses defying everything we know about life, carry the babies....if they can, why...??
Orcas will nurse for up to 5 years, even after another calf has been born. The females never leave the family.
Female hyenas have a 7 inch clitoris which they give birth out of, Im grateful to not be a hyena.
The strongest, largest shark in the womb will cannibalize its siblings. Survival of the fittest.

So now Humans.
We have hormones like all the other animals, we act on them, we procreate.
But its almost as if we do this slyly. Not everyone obviously-not aimed at people fighting to have a child.
We say were making love, connecting, feeling. But how much is truly lust, hormones and instinct?
We have similarities of all animals in our mating rituals, whether babies are in mind or not.
Men act tough, or try to look so slick. Women flirt and dance and wear bright shiny objects, like shes trying to lure a magpie not a partner.
And we have our fights, we get vicious and physical, we fight and we penetrate, fight and penetrate. 
And then almost always someone walks away.

I always come back to the slugs.
Where there seems to be no pretension, no need for competition.
I could be so completly wrong about so many things.
But those slugs just seem to be doing something right.

A LITTLE POETRY COMES

So it is way, way down by the Sea,

inside

that vision comes,

crystal,

and clearly.

 

As the waves touch upon the feet

of the shore line.

 

As soul wades in.

 

So it is way, way down deep, to walk upon...

leaving the shore,

catching a breeze,

 

...setting the sails,

walking upon the winds,

with wings,

 

So swing low, sweet the chariot,

that lifts the spirit,

so high-

 

The Seas.

 

...just to reach a little shack by the road,

with a hole in the roof,

and the boards on the side fall often times,

the winds do blow

through the holes,

 

Yet, here is where

a little poetry comes.

The Last Dance

We were separated through time and through chance. 
We danced to our song, but is it now our final dance? 

Dear hon, I write this letter just to say I love you so. 
You're always on my mind and I will never let you go. 

You're always on my mind for each time and each season. 
Why am I breathing? Look in the mirror...you are the reason. 

Dear hon, you are my sunshine that comes after the rain. 
My everything you are. You simply take away the pain. 

You're all that I want and whatever it is you do. Just 
know this, I'm in love...I'm in love with only you. 

You received my letter, but I feel it in my heart. 
Something isn't right. I sense we're drifting far 
apart. 

You responded by saying that this was really hard to do. 
Not only sense, but now I know that something's definitely 
wrong with you. 

It was then that you told me you had a secret to tell. 
You told me you had cancer with months to live. At this I fell! 

I simply can't believe I'm about to loose my girl. You can't 
leave. You cannot leave! Don't you know you are my world?! 

Dear hon, I can't believe it. Just say it's all a lie. Say you 
aren't dying. I shall believe...at least I'll try. 

We're suppose to be together till the end of time. We're 
suppose live forever holding your hand deeply in mine. 

Dear hon, I booked a flight. I'll be there soon as I can. 
Please hold on, my love. I want to simply hold your hand. 

Here I am at the hospital. You're on your dying bed. 
I'm shaking and I'm crying as I lightly hold your head. 

You looked into my eyes 
The fear...it was there. 

I said these words to you 
"I'll always love you. Babe, I swear." 

Please don't die, my love! My life revolves around you. 
I say this with my heart. I say this with utter truth. 

Please don't die, my love! What more can I really say? 
You're always on my mind both in the night and in the day. 

Please don't die! Please don't go! For I will be missing you. 
If you die, how will I live? How can I breathe without you? 

It was then that you died. Down the halls they hear my cry. 
Why did this have to happen? What's the reason? What's my crime? 

They pull me from your body, but I cannot break away. I'm crying 
and I'm screaming as their taking me away. 

Here I am a lonely man with only few words to say. I stay up 
crying through the night even to the break of day. 

I know you'll rise once again. I'm committed just to you. 
I'll dance with you again, my love...I'll dance again with you.

With Deep Regards

Oh dear, oh dear!
Smile, and see the world outside
Open your door and come to this side
Live and play with the jubilations you desrve
Don't cry! Laugh, smile and live the life with the world outside.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Cheer, and feel the brightness of the day
Wake up from your gloominess and absorb the ray
Bask and savor with the gleam you pour
Don't hide! Seek, reach and meet the life with the cosmos everyday.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Stand, and dance on the athirst field of the awaited monsoon
Spill over with the rainbow from your misted essence
Dance and drench with the mizzly ambiance
Don't Slip! Toe, walk and run - the life with all self-reliance.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Speak, and scream from the top of the mountain
Listen to your own voice and let go the frosted pain
Fly and swing with your colourful amity feathers
Don't cease! Roam, wonder and prosper the life with your own reveries.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Sing, and choir along with the twittering birds cuddling
Theme with the nature so scenic and let blossom your awaited moments
Verse and rime with the melody you charm
Don't faint! Listen, fancy and dream the life with your utmost pride.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Smile, cheer, stand ,speak and sing
See, feel, dance, scream and choir
Live and play, bask and savor, dance and drench, fly and swing, verse and rime
With the world outside...
Open your door - we are calling you and play your eternal life.

Me and Catalina ( A Western Tale)

I had fallen in love with a young Mexican maiden in the town of El Paso
Completely mesmerized by her eyes had me following her wherever she would go.  In 
Rosa’s Cantina, the music would play and Catalina would whirl.  She became my world and 
there was nothing I wouldn’t do for this Mexican girl!
	A wild young cowboy came in with his handsome features and wicked grin.  He 
carried arrogance within and he immediately rubbed me wrong.  His lecherous eyes watched 
my Catalina dance as the pianist played and sang his song.  Too much whiskey, he’d 
consumed.  As this young stranger went to dance with my Catalina, I jumped up grabbing 
him by the arm, spinning him around to face me.  A powerful right hand knocked me to the 
ground and his look was so deadly.  My Catalina screamed, ran to my side, kneeling, 
touching my face.  A pistol in his hand, wild-eyed, I said, “Outside.  This is not the place”.
	It was high noon when the patrons poured out of Rosa’s Saloon.  The heat could 
not be avoided or beat, for it was a hot June…

	I and the young stranger stood facing each other in the center of the dusty road.  
Hands ready at our sides anticipating the next episode.  On either side of us, people young 
and old stood quiet for the event.  My fear was controlled and I itched to draw my deadly 
instrument.  I was distracted for in my eye, in the sky was the glare of the sun.  I did not 
want to die for as he flinched the bullet exploded from my gun.

	Cowboys would later say it was the faster gunplay they had ever seen.  Lighting 
fast came a blast from my quick draw.  I felt a fire burn through my chest but I knew the 
handsome stranger was dead.  Catalina knelt hugging me to her breast and her tears began 
to fall.  The young stranger lay lain but would my death be worth the kill?  I felt my life-force 
drain and an eerie chill.  I listened to Catalina cry as I was scared inside Rosa’s cantina.  I 
did not want to die and leave my dear Catalina!

	Closing my eyes, I lost conscientiousness.  To my surprise, I awoke, seeing my 
princess.  “Catalina, I thought I had died and left you alone!  Kneeling closer to my 
bedside, “The bullet went through just below the collarbone!” I said, “Marry me Catalina. For 
you are my world, my heart”.  She kissed my lips, “Yes, but first I must depart, as my 
Father is ill but I will return to you, soon.  The next day, I watched her leave for Nashville 
with the promise to return the next June…

Rain

I see the rain,
Dancing across the sidewalk,
Carefully placing each drop
One at a time,
They flow with each other,
Gracefully and in sync,
As a dance from the heavens
Praising the One who made them,
And as I watch them,
I become hypnotized,
Almost entranced,
By their beauty

Shall we Dance---Everlasting dance together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surrounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

Horse Racing 4


I laughed
I was laughing like the sun through the clouds
but he did not care at all
that someone like me could write every day
about love,
about you
and we were so close
then I left.
Look at my hands I said
My goodness
you just do not see?

SHHH

Softly you wishper in my ear
Holding me tight
How could any one be so dear
Hun it feels so right

Strong arms around me
Hands on my hips
Heat of our bodys set me free
Hunger on your lips

Seeing your soul
Hearing your shigh
High on your glow
Hard not to fly

Silently you pull closer
Hands press me to you
Hardly breathing lower
How can it be true

One slow dance and then your gone
My dream is over How I tried to hold on

only when we dance

you place your gentle hand
in mine and we dance the

our passion,
as he places his hand 
on my back you embrace
yourself in his arms and
we dance to the beat of

everytime our eye's 
meet our heart's will
burn for each other's
embrace and touch,
as we sway to our love
will carry on,

A Home Brew Fiasco

A Home Brew Fiasco

My lips were parched, my tongue on fire
another shot I did so very much desire
Thank my pappy for this kicking home brew
O' Lord, how to make it, if only I knew!

Sun was about set into its rosy red glow
three hills over was square dance and show
I set me a mighty happy and quickened pace
so very eager to get to that dancing place!

I hear that fast fiddle singing from afar
stop to drink last liquor from my fruit jar
Another burn that went down mighty fine
whiskey my favorite, never cottoned to wine!

One more high hill to just climb on past
swirling head tells my legs to please last
Sun has set and darkness so rapidly falls
music rings louder its beckoning calls!

Another hundred steps and I'll be there
singing, dancing and pretty gals everywhere
Ease myself up against this restful oak tree
surely a rest will be so very good for me!

Eyes heavy and dark clouds coming on down 
now is no time to worry, no time to frown
Darkness races into this tired old brain
no worries, rest easy avoid all the strain!

Morning sunlights breaks between the trees
O' my, pray I didn't sleep all night please
Suddenly I hear the morning call of a dove
I missed out on last night's dance and love!

My lips were parched, my tongue on fire
another shot I did so very much desire
Thank my pappy for that kicking home brew
O' Lord, how to make it, if only I knew!

Robert J. Lindley , 08-21-2014

Inspired by a story my uncle told me back in 
1965. How grandfather once made moonshine and 
missed out on his first date with grandmother.
Luckily she was a forgiving woman and grandfather
a very handsome man or else they'd never married
and I would not be here to sling tha' ink!

A Teardrop Away

I hear a hawk cry to its mate
Takes me back before "too late"
Lonesome lyric desert wind
Sings me into your arms again

How I wish that it could be
not just a dream but flesh & blood reality 
Gone but not forgotten, you will always be
just a teardrop away in my fondest memory

The whisper of the wind brings you back again
to dance among the shadows of my heart 
Thunder echoing down the hills
I hear your voice so close it chills

Lightening dances cross the sky
recalls the laughter in your eyes
Suddenly we're once again
Dizzy dancing in the rain 

Gone but not forgotten, you will always be
just a teardrop away in my fondest memory
The whisper of the wind brings you back again
to dance among the shadows of my heart 

Gone so swiftly without goodbyes
but I know true love never dies
As I kneel at this headstone
I know I will never walk alone

For you'll always live within my heart
guiding me from the deepest part 
Gone but not forgotten, you will always be
just a teardrop away in my fondest memory

The whisper of the wind brings you back again
to dance among the shadows of my heart

moon of love

the moon of love poem
want to dance under the moon light night,
to dance away under the stars so bright,
to hold you in my arms and let the music sway,
to let our souls drift away,

to dance so close in each others arms
to whisper sweet music charms,
to follow your steps in every move, 
to follow the love in every tune,
drifting away under the moon
holding each other till moon is blue
stars at night so very bright

showing our love is all right,
dancing very close
dancing away very slow
lost in words in what we do say
holding each other in a certain way 
close to me i feel your heart
beating to the music, i love that, 

hand in hand the way we do
the music says a want you,
to kiss you by the sea,
whats the moon of love done to me, 
i want to kiss you
and whisper your name, 

let the music drive us insane,
letting things go and lets go mad
this music is so bad, 
as you may see
this is what the moon of love does to me, 

the stars are shining in heavens above
shining on to the moon of love, 
beaming down to where we stand
looking above while holding your hand,
lets move close together and dance so slow
let the moon of love make our love flow, 

together we dance and hold each other tight
whispering to you i love this night, 
nothing going wrong nor storms are near, 
come to me darling and hold me dear, 
dance with me slowly 
while a whisper your name
for my love for you will never change, 

lets dance on the stars
where heaven is blue,
where the moon shines
all over you, 
dancing away till the morning comes, 
dancing away to the moon of love,,,,,

The dance

The band was loud and the lights low
From afar you had a glow

With little pomp and circumstance
I gave my luck a chance
	And we danced
A more beautiful scene could not be painted
Wondering why before this we weren’t acquainted

Lost within your eyes
Shining like stars within the skies

As we spun around and around
Moments such as this hard to be found

When the lights finally came on
And our time was almost gone

I kissed you on the cheek
And ever since I forever seek
	A dance that last till end of time
	A love impossible to define

One night I stole a glance
I found myself lost in your trance
	All this
From that one dance

Dance

We lay together in this moment 
Time stands still around us and only we move 
I hear you breathing in my ear as your hands slide down my chest 
We make God weep at the dance we perform 
And you cry his name in the bliss you desire 
Am I doing this right for you?
Do you like the way I make you move in my arms?
We are hardly half done as we make our own music play the tone I know you love
 Now you lead and I follow in this love dance
Breathing heavy we work in love make you moan 
Am I doing this right for you my love?
I know I am from the weeping of joy from all the desire you have 
We spin round so you can dance above me 
This dance has barley begun 
The dance was slow 
Our hands roaming looking for the right place to hold 
I sigh in relief as we hold each just right 
Let  us speed it up 
The climax is come in this dance 
The final part is close can you feel it approaching?
Heavy breathing stop momentarily just as the world starts around us again
Looking into the your eyes I know this was right
The dance we have started 
Has come to an end for know.

Music of Our Soul

As the piano begins to softly play, 
We begin to write the lyrics to our song. 
I cannot help but think of how life will be, 
like an frozen dance floor slowly beginning to fill 
with the echoing sounds of music, 
and the prisoners of silence will begin to turn and be moved, 
and will start to dance in the dusty ballroom, 
slowly becoming light. 
We find our rhythm and the melody of love 
and begin to create the finished product, 
and we join the dancers on the floor 
and begin to play our song. 
Together we have found the music of our soul.

Not Cinderella

Back in time beneath gas light glow,
I watch where waltz music flows;
will you notice me all alone
too shy to make my presence known?
Awestruck by the sweeping beauty,
ceiling scenes painted heavenly
as though angels are peering through;
are they watching with me for you?
Pretty ladies in dresses fair
with feathered fans and coiffured  hair;
color abounds in satin and lace,
echoed on each expressive face.
Handsome men bowing gallantly,
requesting hands respectfully;
enthralled am  I seeing this world,
a gray oyster in shell of pearl.
Suddenly, you are in this room!
I shrink - fading wallflower bloom;
I doubt that you even know who
I am. How could I have dreamed you
would fall in love with one like me;
I turn to go, quietly flee.

Your hand touches my trembling arm,
your gentle smile dissipates alarm;
the room, quiet at your voice,
anticipates your happy choice.
Pumpkin coach, fairy godmother?
No glass slippers made to cover
my dancing feet; no prince charming
just you and a love, disarming.

Dance of Night

I stand along the shoreline once more
looking out over the open waters
My mind thinks back on cherished moments
smiling with every thought that passes through
As the stars shine brightly above
I watch us dance beneath a shining moon
Gently laying my head upon his chest
I feel every beat of his heart
Looking up into his eyes, not a word is spoken
for I speak from the essence thereof
One touch, a kiss, this dance
it can all be seen through these eyes
The passion that lies within comes from this heart
that can be felt throughout the atmosphere
This moment, right here, right now
all emotion is brought to the surface of these waters
Waves crashing against us, we dance into the sea
I look around and find myself alone once more
Still smiling, I softly whisper
"Until next time, my love"

Who I am

I don't need your approval
Because I am who I am
I dance my own dance 
I rock out to my own jam

I wear my own style
I talk my own talk
I do my own thing
I walk my own walk

People may give me
Some weird look
But I don't even care
'Cuz I'm the writer of this book

I don't need your approval
Because I am who I am
I dance my own dance
I rock out to my own jam

I don't follow the crowd
I do what I want
I am my own person
I'm pretty nonchalant

People can say what they want
But I don't even care
I love who I am
I think I have flare

I don't need your approval
Because I am who I am
I dance my own dance
I rock out to my own jam

I am who I am
I love to be me
I don't want your approval
Don't you see?

I don't want your approval
Because I am who I am
I dance my own dance
And I rock OUT to my very own jam

Morning Coffee

Wake up, the morning is over
The sun rose smiling 
over the window pane,
Morning greetings 
To smell a new- mown hay.
And dance to the aroma
of morning coffee

got up, come with me.
Let’s had a cup of coffee
let us talk for a while.
And enjoy the morning songs
of laughter and of fun.

Sipping the cup of my coffee
Then I was smiled, 
You started a joke that’s what I loved.
You made every moment
special for you and me

A morning coffee habit
A special hour of times in our life
spread with strawberry 
to sweeten our laughter
Or maybe butter it invokes
us to dance under the blue sky high
A morning coffee is I loved too.

A cup of coffee we shared is happiness
Tasted and time well spent.
Sit back, relax, just enjoy
our morning coffee
Along with the green leaves at the trees.
And those daisy flowers
that smiling with us

Don’t asked me 
Until I had a second cup of coffee
I want this time to spend with you,
sipping the last drop of my coffee
it’s time to say goodbye
 tomorrow is another day for morning coffee.

her

Lord please don’t take her i need her here.
She’s one of few who bring me cheer.
She makes me smile like no one else can.
You should see what she does with a steak in her cast iron pan.
I need her more than you will ever know.
With her kiss like the sun she makes my face glow.
If you need her i can’t be mad.
As long as you and her know I’ll miss her bad.
I’ll hold her hand and never leave her side.
Our love for each other will always be tied.
Lord i love her and she is what makes me strong.
Even today we still slow dance to our favorite slow song.
I must not be selfish and keep her for just me.
For i know she will be happy when your face she shall see.
Dear lord i ask this prayer with eyes full of tears.
I truly am thankful to you for all these great years.
If you need her please help me be strong.
If you don’t need her right now can she stay a little while longer?
Lord can you let her dance one last dance again?
And lord i thank you for taken the time to hear
Me and one last thing love you lord.
Amen.

The Girl at the River

The girl at the river
with folding mountains 
and shaggy trees

Watched two white swans 
swaying with the moody breeze

She watched as they danced
and ruffled their feathers 

In a way they were separate
but always together 

She sat for a while as
she inhaled the moment

She knew in her heart the
swans would always be devoted

And as the swans drifted softly 
away with each other

The girl at the river
thought only of her lover

Tango

The beginning is timid 
 time has not any limit. 
 magic movements are slow, 
 we dance the tango of love. 

 It's the music of feelings, 
 bliss and passion revealing, 
 dance of flight and explosion 
 of hidden love.  

 When we part it’s only for a moment 
 Dance of love will never end, be sure. 

 The beginning is timid 
 and it's not so vivid, 
 then it turns into wild 
 and grasping dance. 

 We go deep into music, 
 plunge ourselves into tango, 
 flow together in movements, 
 in the rhythms of love. 

 When we part it’s only for a moment, 
 Dance of love will never end, be sure 

 You throw down the gauntlet 
 and I gently accept it, 
 then resign or surrender 
 as I love to be flown. 

 Your glance strikes like a dagger, 
 then it looks like a beggar, 
 then it turns into covert 
 and shifts aside. 

 When we part it’s only for a moment, 
 Dance of love will never end, be sure. 

 Step.... 3 more.... and I wonder 
 if the next step is a thunder 
 or it will slightly blow 
 just like a breeze. 

 Glamour rhythms of tango, 
 languid music of passion, 
 I am out of fashion 
 and lose my head. 

 When we part it’s only for a moment, 
 Dance of love will never end, be sure. 

 Our thoughts and emotions 
 on the verge of explosion, 
 on the verge of insanity 
 of crazy love. 

 Tango waked up a volcano 
 singing songs Italiano, 
 flaming love and desire 
 of two in love. 

 When we part it’s only for a moment, 
 Dance of love will never end, be sure. 

 We dance tango of passion 
 which is out of fashion, 
 turning time to eternity 
 to the beauty of love. 

 Larisa Rzhepishevska (Odessa, Ukraine)

December 11 - International Day of Tango

Music for this tango was written by Polish composer Jerzy Petersburski. The original text 
tells the story of a young man who was in love. But the girl favored him over another 
man who was rich. So, the guy asked her to come for the last rendezvous on Sunday. In 
Russia this tango was very popular at the end of 1930th and the text was not 
connected with the original one. Polish tango - To ostatnia niedziela.(That last Sunday) 
Russian -  (The tiresome sun) Now I've written my words in English, 
so it's not the translation.

Rhapsody

She didn’t think she
could dance,
so she twirled with 
a beautiful anxiety.
Her pursed lips begged 
people not to stare,
and so I watched
with open palmed 
eyes, hoping she 
would see that my
wandering gaze 
meant no harm.
With a shy pirouette
smile she nudged 
the vacancy within 
me; giving tone
deaf feet the love
it needed to find
hope of rhythm 
again.
And we danced…
We spun round’
like Earth
and moon,
surrendering to
the contest of
gravity, 
making love 
would be so easy
with this between us.
The music gave everything.
Delighting the air with an
elegant bloom,
and warming darkness
with symphonic charm.
We were strangers.
Infatuated.
Waltzing to the 
sound of our own
rhapsody.

Field Of Dreams

Come walk with me thru' a field of dreams 
Of wooded lanes and sunlit streams 
Where rainbows light the path below
And Sunlite' beckons the flowers to grow
 
On beaches strewn with shells and sand 
Come walk with me all thru' this land 
We'll run with the wind blowing in our hair 
And all our hopes and dreams we'll share
 
With hands deliciously touching and learning 
To devour a flame in our souls that's burning 
The moon will be our friend at nite'
We'll walk in the shadows and hold on tight
 
We'll dance till dawn and laugh with the sun 
And wonder where the nite' has gone 
Natures sweet smells will fill our senses 
And we'll drink from it's bounty until it quenches~ 
Our thrist for life and love and glory 
And pray for no end to come to our story
 
In endless play and voices that sing 
Sweet waters dimpling laugh from a spring 
The comforting feel of sensual fingers 
And the fragrance of skin... 
And the smell that lingers 

   Oh, it's such a sweet refrain... 
       To live and love and dance again

Overlooking the Fraser River

As i close my eyes and narrate my dream
It would be my wish, my dream supreme

We meet at Williams Lake in BC Canada
Flying in from our corners of unhappiness
As we drive to the mountains, to our wanting address

We head for Mount Robson, through the Fraser Pass
Our destination is a wonderful log cabin
What a place to spend with your lass

Our destination reached as we view our wooden heaven
Surrounded by a carpet of virgin white snow
Overlooking the Fraser River

We settle and sit down with a nice wine
In wonderment at the panorama before our eyes
Knowing that it will be hard to ever say goodbye

Our afternoon melts into our evening of wait
As we dine to soft music
Absorbing the moment as we catch each others glints

We slow dance together, whispering in each others ears
Our hands in adventure whilst our lips finally meet
Telekinesis thoughts allow our clothing to drift

Barefooted we are as we grace the oak wooden floors
The roaring log fire captures our shadows
As we kiss in song arriving at the hearth of warmth

We bow to our knees naked as birth
Barriers melted as our skins touch in want and desire
Hands now like magnets, in caressing finesse

Moment after moment we absorb our souls
Against the fireside glow, we dance on the walls
Undulating movements captured by inner enthral

The feathered fan

A beautiful fan of many a hue,
Feathers adorn it when opened, so
gently cooling the air with a graceful swoop,
When your subtle wrist moves to and fro.

Was Mamgu’s fan when she was young,
When to a ball she did go.
Hiding her face in a coy pose,
Yet eyeing you slyly, thinking, you didn’t know.

Gracefully dancing eyes lowered to the ground,
Fan to her face to hide the smile,
When dancing a cotillion with partners of four
Hands just touching heart racing a mile.

The fan held the key to their romance
Sliding it to her cheek she was saying, “I want you”
Holding it opened, covering the mouth.  
“I belong to no-one, am here for you”..

TEN CENTS A DANCE

She worked at a boozy ballroom, dancing for 10 cents a dance 
Barely enough to eat and pay her rent in a rundown seedy hotel 
So young, so alone raised by no one but herself 
Oh, she had parents, but they didn’t see her, didn’t know or love her 
She married the first guy who came along just to get away from home 
But he abused her - used her, then left her all alone 

Twenty two years old- 
Alone, with two small children to care for 
She needed someone… 
Someone who would hold her - touch her tenderly with his heart 
Someone to love her- love her children 
Her brown eyes wishing, hoping - looking for love in stranger’s faces 
Dancing for 10 cents a dance under shimmering ballroom lights 
Swaying to and fro through dreamed filled hopes 
With her closed eyes, she pretended as she danced 
Fantasizing that he might be the one to save her- love her 

When the music started she was in another world 
Wishing he’d sweep her off her feet, take her away 
So she could live like a lady and die like a flowering rose when her last petals fell
In the arms of one she imagines will be hers once and for all
To whisper velvet words of comfort as their feet grazed the floor 
Under the melodic grace of the violins she pretended… 
Hoping to find her hero, someone who’ll give her a chance 
Just...for 10 cents a dance

Hapless, Helpless, Hopeless

I'd like a chance of true romance
To dance across my loveless path
A seed in me to place- implant,
But I find it all a laugh!
In splendored lands to hold our hands,
While Beauty lies where Love will stand?
Ha! But in an instant, it feels so distant-
A Union to disband

The Dolphins in the sea dear Lord, they dance for You

They dance for You, I know they do....

Trees which sway in the breeze their rejoicing, as they bow

Calling Your name as they bow, to You dear Lord, I know they do ~

Birds that sing, Mountains and Oceans that gaze, Angels who bring

These Gifts of Your Light and Love, to this world, I know they do?!

Everywhere I turn I find You there, Your Beauty, filling the air....

In the night sky Your Stars that shine; Your Holy Spirit *

Within all of Humankind; their Hearts, their Eyes; Your Creations 

The valleys, the fields, the depths, the heights; Your Glory ~

Your Majesty; the darkness can no longer hide!?

Your Kingdom, dear Lord, soon like a rushing tide; washing away 

Forever the sorrow amid it all; this day, this poisoned dust....

O' death where is your sting? O' grave where is your victory?

Swallowed! As a shooting comet piercing this passing plight!

“Free at last, thank God Almighty, we're free at last.” ~

The Lions in their dens, the Babies in their cribs....

Every living thing and every Spirit reaching out; Shout

For the Lord His coming; His hands, His Love, His plans

Eternity, with the Majestic and Only, Glorious Great I Am * 

The Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, the Beginning, and the End....

Standing at heavens threshold; everywhere I turn, everyday, every

Breath I take, I find You there, dear Lord?!

In the flowers, in the forest, in the sky, in, their Beautiful Lives ~

Deep inside; Humankind, this rushing tide; “All of Creation” 

They dance for You, dear Lord, they dance for You, I know they do....

Come Dance With Me

My love,
What a dream you are to me.

We walk hand in hand,
Sometimes by the sea,
And yes it seems a dream.
But a dream how can it be?

With you I feel so free.
The crashing of the waves,
Erasing old footsteps,
To create new beginnings,
A new life, you and me.

I walk with you tonight,
As we always do,
Showing our love,
How great to be with you.

My heart fills with joy,
With every thought of you.

Tiki torches in the distance,
Their flames dance to the breeze,
As if they are beckoning,
Come dance with me.

Dance we will,
But first a kiss,
As the water sweeps across our feet.

With you I am ready to begin,
Where are you, but in my pen?

I see heaven in the blue of her eyes.  I see a beautiful angel here with me tonight. You
dance in my heart.  Your symphony plays inside of my head.  I want to take your rhythm and

I fall to my knees, fall to my knees and pray.  Heaven don't let me let this girl go.  Can
she forever stay?

And we'll dance for love.  Dance to all the things that make us whole. And we'll dance for
love.  May our burning hearts never grow cold.

I'll love you forever if love is all it takes to keep you mine.  And we'll stand strong
together.  I promise to be your rock for all time. 
You're my queen, my angel.  You're everything I've ever dreamed of.  You're the air I
breathe.  The oxygen I'm so desperately in need of.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance until the stars come out to play.  And we'll dance for
love.  Dance until those stars begin to fade.

I'll follow you wherever.  I'll never let you walk this world alone.  I'll always have a
shelter.  Standing next to you feels like home. I love you more each passing day.  I've
never felt so high as I do now.  Being with you is the closest thing to flying.  Not even
gravity could bring me down.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance for all the words left unspoken.  And we'll dance for
love.  Dance for all the hearts that once were broken.

You hold your head up high despite all the things that try to break you.  And I love who
you are.  The good and the bad and all else that makes you.
You are the other half of me; the better part that completes me as a man.
And you'll never have to be gone for me to know exactly what I have.

And we'll dance for love.  Dance for an eternity of days.  And I'll dance for you.  You're
beautifully imperfect and I wouldn't take you any other way.

A Dance

How gently you folded into my arms
that brief moment we danced.

Your long, black hair fell over my arm
 and poured about my elbow.

There was only us, a closeness 
 too severe to be dismissed.

Closeness so complete
to drive reason to weep.

A dance all too short, 
a dance that never ended.

A dance seen by no one,
a dance forgotten;

A dance, just a dance…

Sing a song

Sing a song. Sing it in the rain. Sing it loud and clear and dance it out into the entire world. That is your song; the song that keeps you going through the good times and the bad. It’s the song that makes everybody listen and smile happily, without a care in the world. It’s the song that makes the birds sing along as well, so sing it loud and sing it clear. Dance your melody clearly into this world.

Why You May Ask

Pick me up
Why you may ask
So that I can stand on your feet while
We dance 

Your moves are smooth
Your glide is nice
Your step is precise

And because you’re my man

Hold me close
Why you may ask
So that my head can rest on your chest

And I can smell your cologne
And hear the rhythm of your heart beat
And be directed by the feet that are under
My feet 

And together we’ll never miss a beat

You know Everything

You know everything about us, but what do we know about you?
You might glimpse in the glimmer of the moonlight, or a fall of dappled light.
You might hear in the rustle of a leaf, and a whisper of a breeze,
But what language do you speak, if you speak at all?
You are a God who lives to raise the ones, who fall,
And if you wrote the script then why all the trouble makers?

How does it feel to be so high?
To feel the softness of the clouds-the innocence of the world.
Do you ever cry? Are you ever happy?
And how do you feel our pain by walking in our shoes?

Do you send the happiness and love we crave so much?
Like the pure white dove flying over the trees
Rustling in the leaves, gazing down at its lower world
Have you ever felt starved? Ever felt full?
Filled with the love of the world
How do you decide our fates, if they are wrapped around your finger?
And if you wrote the script then why all the trouble makers?

You blow like the wind, 
You shine like the stars,
You are forever there
When we are done, done with life
And you raise us up, to be one, to be part of you
For you to be part of me.

So tell me now, tell me now
Why am I so far away and you’re so close?
When you’re high, how can you be close?
Changing sadness to joy, fears to hopes, and dreams to plans.
Have I missed my chance, a chance to be whole, with you?
All I wanted to do was dance, dance in the moonlight, and dance to the stars.
Your stars, the ones that you created, the ones that shine as bright as you.

So how does it feel to be so high?
And do you feel happy, do you feel sad?
Do you smile, but sometimes cry, when the ones you love and care for are down?
So when the light slips around the ageless trees and the shadows dance on a whispering 
breeze,
Allow us to discover the magic, the magic of knowing you.
And knowing you love the world for who we are.

Last Dance

When I was born into this world
I never knew about the Trinity
as I grew into a little girl 
I found that His name is Holy
as A teen I always wondered
does the Lord think of me
so I turned to the Holy Bible
learned He has room there for me

Jesus, when I grow older
I will dance the step..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
will You save..the last dance for me

Now that Im much wiser
I can sure plainly see
Jesus you gave me all Your love
I hear what You are saying to me
the world is aging and so am I
Glorious is my King
He is my foundation,my salvation
He forever lives in me

Jesus, as I grow older
I will dance the steps..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
willYou save..the last dance for me

Now that Im no longer
I still dance to His harmony
yes now,i have passed over
Jesus saved that dance for me
the train of His robe fills the temple
how glorious it is to be
with the Lord of Lords the King of Kings
and He is dancing with me

Jesus, as I grow older
I will dance the steps..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
will You save...
I hope You save...
I pray You save...the last dance for me.

Masquerade of Lies

Welcome to the Masquerade Ball 
Your mask is a cover for all your lies
I told you that to this dance you were not welcome
No extension of invitations did you receive
I will unmask you and you will stand in the center for all to see
Your words are meaningless 
You will lie down in the pile of lies you have created
Let us dance so I can be close to you
Grab your mask and embed my fingers in order to deface you
I will drive a stake through your heart 
It is cold and has no life in it
I will eat it for I hunger for vengeance
Your cold and lifeless body left in the center of the room 
Ballads and a waltz danced in your name
Twirls around you as you lay in your bed
Beheaded and placed on a plate
Posted on the mantle as a trophy
We will feast on your remains 
A celebration for all to enjoy
 Lies you wish to tell
A consequence you will pay
Welcome to the Masquerade Ball

My Beloved (Part III)

                      My attention is undivided as you dance for me the dance of 
Mahanaim with your beautiful sandaled feet.  Your graceful legs are the jewels of 
the Master Craftsman, which surround my waist, and your feet secure them.  So, 
we embrace and come together, for I belong to you, and I know your desire is for 
me.  Hold me close and caress me because the winter is past; the rain is over 
and gone.  The vines have budded and the blossoms have opened.  Everything 
is now ready, and our bed is new and lively.  It's undefiled.  It's spread abroad 
with silk and satin and is perfumed with aloes and cinnamon.  And in our bed is 
every delicacy that has been stored up, so let us solace ourselves with loves, 
and let us take our fill of desire until the morning.
	I have come into my garden; I have gathered myrrh with spice.  I have 
eaten my honeycomb and my honey.  I have drank my wine and my milk, which 
have come straight to me.  Flowing gently over my lips and teeth is the drink of 
your spiced wine, the nectar of your pomegranates- and I, too, shall always fill 
you with love.  You are priceless to me, and I trust you.  I will be good to you all of 
my days.  You are blessed.  You excel all others who think they have done 
virtuously.  Cradled beside me, you protect my heart, and I will praise you 
because you fear the Lord, but never be afraid- I will do for you all that you 
require.  I will be for you all that you need, and my banner over you is love.  
                    My queen, I am rich in you.  You send light into my life as fair as the 
moon, and clear as the sun, and majestic as the stars in procession- and I love 
you.  I love you for who you are.  I will always cherish and adore you.  I will live 
with you in understanding and compassion, and I will care for you, so be secure 
in me.  We are one; you are my only one, and I am yours.  This is the Lord's doing 
and it's marvelous in our eyes, so let us rejoice together in Him and celebrate 
our love.  Let us join together always and delight ourselves forever.

A Tribute

I look into your soul and I am in awe
I read your words and I fly to heavens doorway
Each word carrying a message of beauty so profound
I travel through glorious gardens I can scent each rose 
The colours of your garden dance before me and I sing
You take me to a Ballerina and I feel her love for dance
You take me to your inner soul and I cry with love so true
I fly with you across the Universe and come Alive
I step into a world I always knew existed
But never dreamt such beauty could be shared
I thank you for this gift of words that enrich my soul
I want to fly back to the garden and its beauty behold
You are a conductor with baton poised
And I dance to the music of your words with joy
Whirling, whirling lost in time and space
Climbing higher and higher, upwards ever more
Humbled by the experience and emotions unleashed in me.

MAY THE BAND BEGIN THE BEGUINE

There seem so many adventures in far exotic places,
When romancers enjoy serenity and moments so sweet.
Their hearts swoon with greenery’s fragrant traces
And romantic  expressions their lips begin to repeat,
As the eternal delights and joys impel their hearts to beat.
Their erotic pleasures devise their own fanciful idyllic scene,
As their movements together seem less and less discreet.
So let’s say heartily may the band begin the beguine.

Here I sit in wonder as my mind is going through paces,
With nothing more than the past with which to compete.
About the hearth of yore and the embers it  yet embraces;
I ask the God of love if it may again emit such heat,
Sufficient to give light to every fixture of this retreat.
It might  awaken age fermented desires so serene  
To reign like the stars high above in sublime conceit.
So let’s say heartily may the band begin the beguine.

May two lovers once again gaze into each other’s faces;
May answers to each other’s eternal questions  be complete.
And might their future be inherently bright by God’s graces;
As they are amused by songs and melodies so sublimely sweet
And tripping  the light  fantastic confines vanish below their feet.
With long remembered yearnings they dine with regal mien,
As they seek all their memories dreams and visions to replete.
So let’s say heartily may the band begin the beguine.

A toast to all romantics who are so inspired by sentiments like this,
Who prepare for the most gorgeous event possibly foreseen,
Who await the return of a romantic age of experiences of bliss.
 So let’s say heartily may the band begin the beguine.

Dance to the Ticking of the Clock

You left with a kiss
And the lips that I’ll miss
Not a tear, not a longing glance back.
I watched as you strode
A month down the road
Wandering through time with no compass or map.

And the places you went
The time that you spent
Were they ever the same without me?
Your friend or your foe
I guess I’ll never know
How you’ll change and what horrors you’ll see.

If you have time for one stop
My door is unlocked
And it stays that way for you alone.
I see you in the door 
And realize what hearts are for
As mine pounds and like you, comes home.

We’ve been miles away
Now much closer today
But farther again with each tick and each tock.
So as time passes too quickly
Let us dance to its ticking
Let us dance to the ticking of the clock.

How I loved your laugh

We danced around a candle lit room,
The wick burning low,
We whispered softly - you held me close,
The music of the night was enough for you, 
To twirl me around in the shinning moon,
My eyes alight in wonder and love. 

Your shoes tapped quietly on the floor,
My slippers hushed across the room, 
As we stepped and side stepped and stepped again,
You made me laugh and I filled with light inside, 
You stood tall, your demeanor filled with pride,
Oh Cassius won't you let me stay by your side. 

The wolves howled and in joined the dogs,
The fort was cold within stone walls,
And fire burning, its light grew low,
Your whiskey in the light seemed to glow, 
And I dared a sip from your glass,
I made a face, Oh Cassius how I loved your laugh.

Dancing in the Rain

Help me to soar like an eagle, 
To shine like the sun moon and stars.
Write a melody of angels,
As I sing my praises plain;
Grant me no shelter from the storm,
As I learn to dance in the rain.

Keep me dancing to your tune,
As I love and follow you,
'Till the curtain's final call.
I can take great big strides,
'Cause I know you're right beside,
Ready to catch me when I fall.

As I learn to dance, to dance in the rain

Vasava - An Untold Story 10/Many

Vasava – An untold story                                                               10/Many


Curtains made of Silk with gold thread embroidery  
Were hanging on all the doors and windows of the auditorium
Big silk curtains, were hanging behind the dance stage
Shining and blinking,  because of gold and silver on them, 
Were brightening the dance stage, making it bright like a day

Beautiful Persian carpets were displayed 
Covering the entire auditorium, where the guests were sitting
A thin such carpet was also lying, all around the stage
Leaving the dance floor, which was made of Mahogany wood 
On which, Vasava was sitting to start her first Raga of the day

All the eyes were drinking the nectar like wine of Vasava
So lovely were her looks and so intoxicating was her youth
The beauty of her spotless body, was spreading its charms
Which was coming out, from every part of her body, specially 
The matchless beauty of her eyes, legs, waist, hands and bosoms

King Suyodhan was invited on the stage to declare the Utsava to begin
And then appeared the attraction of the Utsava or the day, Vasava
The drums and musical instruments began to flow their sounds
The team of musicians accompanying Vasava, took seat near her
Suddenly all became speechless, so that they may not miss a word of her singing

Vasava’s face appears to have taken, the beauty from full Moon glow
And the gold Noopur* which she wearing in her feet’s
Were ringing, on her leg’s movements, creating a melody on its own, 
Her recitation of Saraswati’s* prayer had already enthralled everyone
And now she was about to begin, her first performance of the day

                                                of brass and many such are tied up in a cloth belt.

A Dreamless Tree Dweller

Swaying. Dancing. Let me carry you.
Dance for me. Dance for me. Dance for me.
It's beautiful how you hold on so tight, but reach so far.

Up and Up and Up.
Begging sunshine and starlight and moon beams to fill your cupped palm.
We' can sip from it together but we both know you'll never be satisfied
Until your silver leaves can dance to the symphonies of singing constellations.

The diamonds sprinkling down your face would look like tears.
But you, and I? We both know this isn't real. Put away your fears
And dream for me. Dream for me. Dream for me


And please darling, Let us never wake.

My Love ...

My love my love 
Just one more dance just one more
As I dream I feel you near 
Your touch is still alive 
I fight my cries at night 
Your picture is my guide
You owned my soul as I owned yours
All eternity I will love my love 
I miss your intensity 
Your single worded smile
I shall not forget as we were ment
In this life time and next 
I will glide into my passing 
With knowing we will have one more dance
My heart stopped a thousand times 
A rememberance of your last breathe
I kissed your lips and took that breathe within me 
I love my love I love
Not even death can you be taken
Your spirit carrys mine
I see you admiring at me 
I hear your whispers
My love my love  
The song we played 
I dance with my arms awide 
I know you dance by myside
I love I love MY LOVE ....

Insanity is magic-love is khaoz-hate is music

INSANITY IS MAGIC LOVE IS KHAOZ AND HATE IS MUSIC



i love to dance for the one who knows me best is me
i love to be passionate on life about life because that is lacking
tell me that you feel differently 
do tell me what goes through your mind
insanity is magic because it is truth at its finest
yet those who are indifferent can not conform to diversity
making insanity some type of disease manifested by irresponsibility
when truth is that the best things were by accident by chance or plain out fate
love is khaoz because without it you would be a robot in a factory following commands
following not leading 
you would conform to roads laced with repetition... roads bleeding 
hate is music ... turn on your tellie your radio your internet
hate makes the world function or did you already forget
dance the controversy dance the gossip dance the worries away
stomp on indifference and make the world pay
simply by doing nothing but two step here and there
i am a feminist i am free
i am a poet the world will hear me
i want common sense to be practiced in the branches of law
i want common sense to be the foundation to everything without it everything will continue to 
fall
i love one with my heart but she runs from me
i want to explore the world for knowledge not for conspiracy
i am a wild card in a deck of conformity
i am a joker if you will 
i will play my way... no matter what your deal
insanity is a place i reside 
be it on land or in the air
love is what stirs my ambition 
because hate is so known
i carry it under my feet... as i stomp
and watch people just stare

I'd...

Walking down the street
Don't know where we're going
Don't know who we'll meet
And you take my hand
Counting the stars at night
We stop cuz they're just too bright
You kissed my forehead
Then looked at me and said

Chorus
I'd fly to the moon with you
Drive too fast just to show you 
How it feels when you're around
I'd dance with you all day
I'd kiss you in the rain
I'd do anything for you
Because I love you

Looking around at the mall
We stop in the midle of it all
And hug forever
Hanging out at the park
I swear, I got sparks
When you ran your fingers through my hair and said

I'd fly to the moon with you
Drive too fast just to show you
How it feels when you're around
I'd dance with you all day
I'd kiss you in the rain
I'd do anything for you
Because I love you

Fifty years from now
We'll look back and say "oh, wow"
I'll turn to you, smile and say

You flew to the moon with me
Drove too fast just to show me
How it feels when I'm around
You danced with me all day
You kissed me in the rain
You did everything for me
Because you love me

I'd fly to the moon with you
Drive too fast just to show you
How it feels when you're around
I'd dance with you all day
I'd kiss you in the rain
I'd do anythign for you
Because I love you

EDEN

Dedicate thy life to me, mine given unto thou

Fragrant is the fruit of love, from Eden's laden bough

Into the garden entered we, one man, one woman unite

The serpent tempting apple red, that she may take a bite

Dedicate thy life to me, mine given unto thou

Fragrant is the fruit of love, from Eden's laden bough

Decline the call from silver tongues, of promises made of lies

Keep unto truth our garden green, with innocent hazel eyes

Dedicate thy life to me, mine given unto thou

Fragrant is the fruit of love, from Eden's laden bough

Take this breath I offer you, the breeze of love to know

And I shall stay beside you child, as we dance cheek to cheek real slow

Fragrant is the fruit of love, from Eden's laden bough

Dedicate thy life to me, mine given unto thou

The serpent tempting apple red, that she may take a bite

Into the garden entered we, one man, one woman unite

Keep unto truth our garden green, with innocent hazel eyes

Decline the call from silver tongues, of promises made of lies

And I shall stay beside you child, as we dance cheek to cheek real slow

Take this breath I offer you, the breeze of love to know

Fragrant is the fruit of love, mine given unto thou

Dedicate thy life to me, from Eden's laden bough

Forever-Part 2

Pacabells cannon starts to play. The gates open and everyone looks my way. Beautiful black and red roses line the red carpet that leads to you. You look amazing tonight too. I look at my white dress as I step into the setting sun. The light catches the black sparkles and roses on my dress and makes me look beautiful, makes me feel like one. A black rose on this beautiful LA sand. A black rose that belongs to a wonderful man. I slowly walk down the aisle. I walk up to you and I smile. There's black and red roses on the alter and I get up ther. I can smell their sweet fregrance in the warm evening air. The paster starts as I look at you. You say you vouls and I say mine too. You say "I do," and I do the same too. You slip yet another beautiful ring on my finger and kiss me so sweetly. We hold hands and walk back down the beautiful rose lined aisle.

 

We walk to the peir where there are beautiful lights hung up everywhere. I spin to look at the beauty and you lean in close to me and say, "wait here." You walk up to the DJ and request and smile as a familure tune comes on. I continue to smile and I take your hand. you walk me back out onto the beautiful sand.  "Our first dance," you say. My smile gets bigger when I here Amazed starts to play. You pull me closer to you as we start to move from side to side. My nourvousness is hard to hide. "You okay beautiful?" you ask softly as you gently run your hand through my hair. "Yeah baby, I'm fine," I say as I see people gather around and stare. We dance and we sway sweetly and quietly. We kiss and dance slowly. We kiss again and you start to sing along with the song. I've been waiting for this day, I've been waiting so long.

 

We'r walking on the beach again. hand in hand. you still in your tux, I'm still in my dress. This is our future. Together. Forever. The setting sun catches my ring. It shines brightly. "I love you," I say and we kiss again. "I love you too," you say and gently pick me up.

You carry me back up to the house. You carry me up sairs and lay me on our bed. You lay beside me and gently kiss my head.

We lay there and talk for hours and hours. We smile and laughas our future stretches on in front of us.

Dance

I'll dance all night
I'll dance the pain away
I'll dance until the morning sun
Graces us with day

I'll dance until I'm numb
Until I don't feel anymore
I'll dance until I'm gone
And don't remember what I'm dancing for

I'll dance until you love me
I'll dance the rest of my life
I'll dance until you return
By the moon's gentle light

I'll dance to the music
Of my shattering heart
I'll dance until it doesn't hurt
As you tear me apart

Humming Bird Dreams

I smile as it seems to be,
 The wind came to play with me.
 For i lay in bed,
 Ill for what seems like forever.
 I cannot move or dance myself,
 So the wind and my dreams dance together.
 I watch as the humming birds made of lace,
 come alive before my eyes.
 I love to watch the sweet caress,
 Of the lacy blinds against the open glass.
 I love to watch as my dreams take me,
 Dancing me out my small window
 To the open land and tall trees,
 To the light in the skies,
 And the smell of the seas.
 I laugh as i slip away into my dreams,
 Now i can dance for myself.

Twice has been enough

Twice has been enough

Twice, I would have loved to dance across the threshold
of reality – first time - with a Polish Princess, 
who captivated my mind, captured my heart.
Twice, I would have loved to dance across the threshold
of reality – second time – with a Chinese Lotus Blossom,
an exquisite, exotic Beauty, who stole my heart.
The dances I envisioned would have taken either, 
if willing, into the fantastic realms of the surrealistic.
Worlds of the unimaginable, where visions are so clear, 
colours, shapes so vivid, so profound, so invigorating
they take one’s breath away as we trip the light fantastic
upon the essence of light, of sound, of sight, of life
beyond our beliefs and what we are forced to endure,
forasmuch as our human limitations – imposed by ?, –
will carry us. Is it the hand of the gods ?, the hand of fate
the essence of our genes, our nature, our nurturing
or are our limitations self imposed ?,
by the hands of our own understanding, our own history.
The dances I dreamed of, with either, are but an illusion
I have deluded myself with, in order to rise above
their lack of love for what and who I am, for me.
Now both are just memories, they’ve become history
And all that is left for me, is to be their friend,
a friend indeed, when in need.

Hold Me Tight

Hold me tight
I want it to last
Hold me close
I want you to be fast

The music is pumping my ears
With it's swirl of thrumming and beats, pitches and yells, and highs and lows
It's just you and me, and a few thousand people, but other than that no one knows

That your hand is on my waist
Holding me tight
That I'm savoring your taste
Because I want you to last
But I like things to go fast

The lights are reflected in my eyes
You move your body into mine
I dance away, I dance back, I dance away, I dance back
There is no death, no life, no time
I dance away, you bring me back, you dance away, you can't help but come back
I am the pendulum
You are my base
I am the wind
You are the space

It's as if my blood is getting ready to race
It's preparing itself
It always wins
You gaze and smile, your whole story formulating on your face

But I'm not that simple
I reflect others, not myself
But at the moment, I feel high off of happiness

So hold me tight
Don't let me fall
Hold me close, I'll be your shining light
I want us to last
But I like to move fast
So, the least you can do is take my hand

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
Hear...  calling
As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As a Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night lights
Just until midnight

For when the clock strikes
Midnight.. 
Then I must leave
Quickly… 
For I must go.. away
That way no one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... just a dream


But.. I shall dance among the Stars
Singing praises unto my king
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair flys in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praise's be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars
In Heavenly home
Knowing now 
I shall never be alone…
Praise always be
To our everlasting king

An Illusion of a dream.

As I stood upon that lonely hill that nigth

I stared at the sky wondering why she had

left me, left me in the dark, left me confused

to my own demise. I began to wonder if the

reality i was living was real or just a

mere nigthmare of a dream gone wrong.Slowly

I turn around never to look down to the

corpse of my former self and I began to

walk away into the shadows to seek shelter

for my shattered heart. I began to walk the

lonely path, the path which no other dares

to travel and in the deed of the nigth I

saw shadows moving around me whispering to

join them in their dance to dance in a

Illusion of a dream of what love could

be, perhaps is a dream of things that can

not be.

Dance with me and sing the song of Spring

*** In the style of the oldies :)

Dance with me among the stars tonight
And hold me tight.
When we touch and when I kiss your lips
It feels so right.
Every word you say to me is like a song of spring,
And with you I will forever sing.

Even when the winter’s cold embrace
Touches your face,
I will make you warm inside and 
I’ll be by your side
No one in this crazy world is more in love than I,
You’re the star I’ve searched for in the sky.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me lets make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And with you I will forever sing.

Thought I can’t foretell of things to be
But you’re with me.
And this moment’s where I want to be 
And tenderly
I hold every kiss and every touch and sound,
Thank you love - for it is love I found.

So, dance with me under the stars tonight,
Dance with me and make this moment right,
Sing to me your lovely song of spring
And with you I will forever sing,
And for you I will forever sing.

Love to dance

I love to dance
I love the feeling of the steps
I love how the movement rushes through me
I love the beat of music
And how it is easy to follow
Fast beats are fun and difficult
They are easy once you have them mastered
I love to dance
I dance for grace and beauty
I dance for love and joy
How do you capture the spirit of humanity?
You dance, you follow the beat with your heart
You have your own moves and use ones you have been taught
You enjoy the feeling
I dance for the feeling of joy and happiness
I dance for my story and for yours.

Unbound, Certain, and True

As we weave our dance today some time slips into being what is before us in this glorious dance I love so as tears fill my eyes with your joy and recognition focused in perfection before me where I can breath them into life life that we share as one separate but never far apart in a life that I love like water drinking your skin with my eyes as you sail through canyons of uncertainty as if tomorrow could die and you'd be happy just as you are today knowing your heart is not some moment's creation but eternally woven into being by the very footsteps you are taking now and have take since before you knew you walk alone together with me as if we recognized some purpose dreaming we may touch in order that we do knowing the day will come when this beauty will abound larger long enough to light a fire in the heart of a new traveler who lay sleeping silent there in the distant corner of your imagination until our love gives life again in a relay race without winner and our kiss seals their fate to become their own keeper and continue our flame as if they held us as they do just as surely as we hold them unbound certain and true

A Dance She Loves To Share

The music compels her to dance,
And in her sleek, shimmering pants;
She won't miss this fabulous chance.

So, watch her as she starts to  move,
With every footstep she will prove,
That she's, no doubt, into the grove.

By no chance will your eyes ignore,
She does her best to give you more,
Dancing to music she adores.

The young-men mouth will sometimes drip,
For she will move her shapely hips,
To take them on a sensual trip.

And while there, their eyes will ponder,
As her skillful body wonders,
Hoping she'll dance even longer.

Yes, she will moves with such a flare,
So gracefully from here to there,
Doing a dance she loves to share.

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
I Hear...  calling
Whispering out my name

As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As my Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night Twlights

Just until midnight
For when the clock strikes
Then I must leave
Quickly… For I must go.. away
That way no-one knows

Singing praises unto my king

As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again

Angels Weep , Love Endures

 Angels Weep , Love Endures

Gentle are the ways of your loving steps and dances
 a softness that make the angels weep in unison
A voice you sing me into rapture and peace with always
 wonderful it's appeal and glowing it's light, 
   shine softly the glow , forever and a night

Look not away from our mirrored ever-loving embrace
 fly with me into a sweet and sizzling naked heat
A night awaits our entrance into another magical realm
 the aroma of the moment will soothe our souls
  the breaking of morn will find us never apart

Walking the highwire



Highwire dancer in cautions step
sets out to brave her highest ascent
No net to break a possible fall
Too far to see the journey's end 
she begs for courage to risk it all
and choose the path which fate has lent

All her life on the tightrope spent
with each false move her balance kept
No circus stage or crowd to cheer
applause forsaken for doubtful stares
so few and far in between 
are the high wires that lead to dreams

Once across there's no way back
some choices made are meant to last
But oh the raw and biting fear
to walk the wire through mist of tears
If only she had wings to fly
see the picture on the other side

Will passion reign a burning flame
or safe alone with peace to claim
When standing at the wires edge
one foot fearfully leaves the ledge
In hopes the choice will see her through
and live the life she wanted to

Steady now thy heart that pounds
looking forward never down
clear the clutter clutching heart
yesterday's gone, future's now

And so in grace she leaps then lands
to find her fear at once disband
as if that leap had been the key
to the passion she couldn't receive 

There it was across the wire
fearful valley traveled through
all the passion she desired
born from trust they grew she knew

She remembers all from the platform stood
and all she left behind
to seek the dream of dreams come true
though broken, confused and blind

Of those she loved but couldn't choose
their bonds she couldn't unchain
who wish for her to fill their shoes
and walk the miles of pain

Yet if she could make them know
her heart meant no "cruel intent"
she simply choose the likely road
to a life she'd not repent

Her life has been a circus of sorts
she's been the ring master and clown
the show on her shoulders and smiles by force
fearing the high wire would tumble to the ground

So if you see the dancer smile
her fearful heart at peace
because she left the life of wires
happy in the life she needs

Maybe you could find a way
not to blame her for the cost
on the chance you took to love her best
she held no gift savant

She will never forget and forever remember
the loves that led to this
happiness she prayed for years would come
and without them would have missed

For they helped her to define her need
shine bright what mattered most
she took her chances too, fatigued
the pain which that evoked

Still better to have loved and lost
Then never known at all
a love so deep in spite of cost
leaving memories worthy of the fall

Drummer

I want to hear your voice
the feel to the switch poise
the drool when you stop and swagger
the cool when you drip honeyed dagger
into the curl and fray and elite stagger
I want to touch the sunbathing mount in it
drown in drawl husky
battering against the rain and wind of day
I want it christen me with bubbles of hope, fun
humor all over
a hand against mine , a foot tapping dash of your lush
nuances, plucking, wheeling around in a twirl,
a beep of surprise, a nicety as the bribe
a filigree of drive to say, to speak into a utter
the ultimate dine of i love you...

The Flower Dance


I watch delicate flowers dance a delightful wave
Their brilliance and fragrance designed for us, to delight and to amaze

They spring in precision to the harmony in the breeze
My eyes see a piece of heaven as I watch them dance to please

I watch with wonder, for their creation, mystifies my mind
I sense God’s glorious design, in all His formations so divine

the moon of love

want to dance under the moon light night,
to dance away under the stars so bright,
to hold you in my arms and let the music sway,
to let our souls drift away,

to dance so close in each others arms
to whisper sweet music charms,
to follow your steps in every move, 
to follow the love in every tune,
drifting away under the moon
holding each other till moon is blue
stars at night so very bright

showing our love is all right,
dancing very close
dancing away very slow
lost in words in what we do say
holding each other in a certain way 
close to me i feel your heart
beating to the music, i love that, 

hand in hand the way we do
the music says a want you,
to kiss you by the sea,
whats the moon of love done to me, 
i want to kiss you
and whisper your name, 

let the music drive us insane,
letting things go and lets go mad
this music is so bad, 
as you may see
this is what the moon of love does to me, 

the stars are shining in heavens above
shining on to the moon of love, 
beaming down to where we stand
looking above while holding your hand,
lets move close together and dance so slow
let the moon of love make our love flow, 

together we dance and hold each other tight
whispering to you i love this night, 
nothing going wrong nor storms are near, 
come to me darling and hold me dear, 
dance with me slowly 
while a whisper your name
for my love for you will never change, 

lets dance on the stars
where heaven is blue,
where the moon shines
all over you, 
dancing away till the morning comes, 
dancing away to the moon of love,,,,,

This Ghost Can't Dance at All

 She danced on subtle surfaces a shadow to the mind.

I walked to her grave and felt at home.  

The doors creek and the floors bend.  
At night, when I’m alone,
I see her yet again.  

This specter moves in motions
Emotions can’t behold.  
Reaching for her hand, 
I see her fade through walls.  

Tears bring the pain.  
This ghost can’t dance at all.  
But, every time,
 Yes, every time…

This ghost takes hold of my soul.
By candle light, 
She enters my eyes, 
 Empty and queer dimensions enthralled.  

Why am I still bound 
To this love, 
And this grave?

She once touched every wound
And had it melt away, 
But now this gray loves so cold, 
Icy to every touch.   

Tattered curtains, 
Cracked windows, 
This once was our home. 

I don’t want to be alone.  
This secret,
It visits me,
But I know you’re dead.  

Dreams become 
An alternate reality,
Nightmares going through my head;
You’re not gone.  
No, you’re not gone.  
Songs, somber sweet, 
Play in every room
Because at night 
You dance yet again.  

But within me there is no peace.  
Bring the fire.  
This ghost can’t dance at all.  

Hot intensity bleeds from underneath that which consumes me completely, 
This home of memories-incomplete. 

I will to end this haunting song.  
It’s fear,You, that haunts me every night.  

Blow out this endless death.
Waiting here, I've become undressed. 
I'm naked, raw, without whim.    

So, once again, 
Once again,
I’ll see you dance at night.  

Because this ghost can't dance at all...

Chance Meeting

Memory of the dance we shared,
beneath the stars and the moon…

Never say goodbye, for we can
dance all night…

Could this have been Kismet?
Our meeting like this?

Holding so tight when we danced
made me feel all right…

I don’t usually go to dances or parties,
but I am glad I did this time or we
would have never danced…

Saying goodbye after a wonderfully,
marvelous evening of dancing is hard
for I never want to say good-bye…

I could have missed the dance and
the chance meeting but I am glad
I had changed my mind for
I was able to met you…

Hey who's to say I might not have
chanced it all, then would we have
met so place else?

A Love So Tragic

(pt 1) 
We seem so indifferent
Like we just don't feel
We've got cuts on our hearts
That will never heal
Beautiful as a train wreck
In that confusing way
Stuck in reverse
Living on yesterdays
We fall into the darkness
And drown in the sea
No love has ever been so tragic
As the love between you and me

(pt 2) 
Your gorgeous as you always are
So beautiful no one could believe
That you could find such beauty
In someone like me
But we paint a pretty picture
We make it look so nice
With hearts hard as stone
And eyes carved from ice
Seperated only by distance
Our beauty envied by the stars
Our story so original
The tragedy of what we are

(pt 3) 
Pick me up and carry me
Through our sweet abyss
Shroud me in your fantasy
Its not like I'll be missed
Give me all your heart
Your perfect in my imperfections
Look in the mirror and see it
That beautiful reflection
So we'll dance our way to freedom
We'll dance until we die
Forever framed in beauty
The tragedy of you and I

My Birthday Dance

In leathers and silks
Before me she stands
With her short dark hair
In delightful strands

As a birthday treat
She declares to striptease
Our passion will follow
For our wants to please

Her hips start to sway
As her torso gyrates
Her breasts in sync dance
To excite her soul mate

Hands behind her head
In sultry pose she looks
The enjoyment of her moves
She's doing it by the book

The leathers she is wearing
Entice her hands to touch
Revealing her pert shaped breasts
My want to caress them much

Slowly she moves to her music
Her rhythmic motions pour
Now sliding down her underwear
Falling gracefully to the floor

Naked apart from her silks
That cover her arms and legs
Her man now panting and wanting
On his knee's he soon will beg

Her hands begin to wander
To touch the woman in her
My heart begins to rev
She can hear my engine purr

The tempo in her actions
Excites the man in me
What a birthday present
My darling has done for me

She starts to dance real closer
Her hands undress me so
We both now stand there naked
The desire of each other grows

We start with a kiss
Like rose petals in the breeze
Lightly caressing and touching
As we collapse to our knee's

The floor becomes our temple
As our bodies sensuously mix
The images as we make love
My birthday dance in pix

A dance to Chopin's Waltz

Oh see the daylight change,
as sunrises set
and a full moon covers the dark horizon;
as the ball rooms in the palaces fill
with masked smiles,
beautiful smiles,
warmed hearts and loving music.

As I stand alone,
dear old me; I see you from afar,
a beautiful woman standing alone in a mirrored room;
(a thousand similar frowns surround you)
Come now my girl;
as the dancers take the marble floor to dance,
We shall stand tall and proud and dance to a Chopin's Waltz.

My heart weighing down marble heavy as I approach your beauty,
sweet beautiful angel on earth,
dear girl come with me.
Join my hand,
as we take the floor and as we join together,
as your frown shines a quick smile.
As you make my heart thump,
you make my palms sweaty- oh I'm very sorry-
nervousness of a feeling of love,
as we take this one dance to make a night of smiles.

Come as we dance a subtle song to a Chopin's Waltz.
As we fall for each other,
as we look into each other's eyes
it sparks fire in our souls;
you quickly look away,
and I feel bashful,
but we are still hand and hand dancing to a Chopin's Waltz.

Love fills the night,
as the full moon and silver stars twinkle over our heads;
a shining night shared by the both of us.
Two hearts embarrassed at first,
but sharing a loving Chopin's Waltz.

Modern Maiden

She spills the water. 
The drops play. 
Dancing down her legs. 
Her skin milky.
Sweat mingling moist
Circles of design. 
She cries now. 
Time is crude. 
 Pulls and stretches. 
Once soft 
Once smooth. 
No more!

Thought of lovers. 
Fill and leave. 
Messages of lust
Found in sheets. 
Tips of hair;
Caress shoulder,  breasts. 

How she spun     
Her head. 
Made her hair dance. 
Electric love 
Tingles from within. 
Lover sleeps. 
Awake.  Alone.

A Night to Remember

A dance to foretell
of love's lasting kiss.
I know him not well
and hope more than this.
A touch of his hand,
my vantage, a dream,
the ballroom is grand
in splendorous gleam!

The music plays loud -
a Viennese waltz.
Notes blend with the crowd
in boisterous vaults,
and Sirius shows
more bright than before.
The night's starry glow
warms me to my core.

Toasts, cheers and laughter -
merriment galore!
Champagne sips after
each spin on the floor.
My dance card is filled,
but all my eyes see -
strong man with tall build,
how handsome is he!

With touch of his cheek
and twinkling brown eyes,
more words do I seek
than polite replies.
Then, when dance is done
and night stops to rest,
my head will have won
a place on his chest.

One familiar glance,
vows exchanged in June,
all from a first dance
that ended too soon.

Last Caress

I fight with closed eyes, for your undying love.
Under my blade demons die, the legacy heroes dream of.
I'll climb the highest point, and slay the fiercest foe.
Our dearest hearts now joint, for all to know.
I'll make all of your dreams, come magically true.
I'll fight 'til the end it seems, all for you.
Bloodied blade in hand, waiting to strike.
Horror across the land, death comes to all alike.
I close my eyes, and think of you my princess.
These battle cries, make me crave for your caress.
Your soft skin, brings back memories.
Enemies paper thin, fall to their knees.
When I get back, we'll dance under the stars.
Waiting for the attack, feeling the haunting scars.
Blood stains, such a murderous filigree.
Bloodied guts and brains, pour and sicken me.
I'll kiss you so, and the night will never end.
I'll never go, my beloved friend.
Life is meaningless, without you.
My love I'll confess, all said is true.
I've slayed so many things, and prevailed against all hell.
To hear my angel as she sings, is a tale worthy to tell.
As I take my charge, I feel your ghostly kiss.
Our love so large, your love I'll forever miss.
There's no guarantee, I'll get out alive.
I remember how you loved me, and how we'll forever thrive.
So I stand right here, and I'll never run.
Through my blood and your tear, I'll fight 'til I'm done.
I'll get through, I'll never fail.
As long as I hear you, sing how our love will prevail.
I take this breath, it's been my last.
I accept this death, as I recall our past.
I'll sing and dance with you my princess, just to feel your last caress.

Moonlight

Dance with me for just one night,
Spin me around and hold me tight,
Staring into your eyes is such a beautiful sight,
Just you and I dancing in the moonlight,
Our movements are flowing and smooth as we dance to the sound of a spanish guitar,
Feeling the cool gentle ocean breeze softly blowing against us,
Not even the beauty and romance of Italy, 
Could not compare to the beauty and romance that fills our tropical oasis,
We shall dance all night,
And twril and glide into the morning light,
Still holding eachother tight,
I want to spend the rest of my life dancing with you in the moonlight.

The Dance

can we dance when the sun sets 
  and the moon goes down
many times I've dreamt of this dance 
 and wished it would come true
the doves can carry us away
  to the edge of the earth
there we can fall in love again
where the bells toll a great tell
but the telling is of grave days
that keep me locked inside my head
there is nothing for me to see
i know you are not thinking of me
so the days and nights are the same
and u will always be here in my mind
where i can at least dance with you
in a vision of yesteryears gone by
and you still kiss me on the lips
but its just some lost memories

Romantic Serenade

It was the Halloween Ball
In the season of the fall
A mysterious bachelor called
To the attention of us all

The biggest mansion party
The cooks food is hearty
The host is definitely tardy
For most of his own party

The musicians play the last dance
The men try to romance
But don't stand a chance
For the host is here! They glance

To a man dressed in black wear
In Old Spanish attire bare
The women began to stare
For he was a young stallion, a Mare

From a top the stairs he walks
The ladies gather to stalk
The man who doesn't talk
Like birds they came in flocks

He wore black clothes and a red sash
White trim and a black mask
To find a dancer is his task
But who will he ask?

The only girl not drawn to attention
Is sitting alone no words to mention
He takes her hand There is no tention
Soft as a doves wings a cool sensation

The proceed to the middle of the floor
She doesn't know what's in store
A lot of musicians come in..there is more!
Some of them rich, some are poor

He takes his tunic off then starts
The music is written from the heart
The stand at attention far apart
Then the solo with the silver harp

The drum beat starts going 
They come together emotions flowing
His risque' dance he is showing
To her mind he is boasting

They move and dance like magic
For five minutes the song's romantic
The crowd watching in motionless static
The songs end was very tragic

The last beats were hard to miss
They drew close and started to kiss
For her it was a mystical bliss
His every movement caressed her lips

The awkward silence he starts to leave
The young lady can hardly breathe
She starts to faint...she can't see
The wings appeare and she falls asleep

The girl awakes in her bed it seems
In her school clothes it was only a dream
The sound of water foils the scene
Her eyes still blurry it's hard to see

She wanted this for real
Her heart is sealed
Then fate will have to deal
Her new loves appeal

She notices something on the ground
It's the wings and mask she found
And a CD blank is bound
She puts it in and the sound...

Is the unforgettable song
It was to her so long
But there was something wrong
Where did this come from?

In the CD case is an Old Engligh letter
It said "Undoubtedly for the better
I am gone with the weather
Your kiss I will always remember forever and ever

The Victory Day Celebrations

After bowing before the statues
Of her favorite Goddess Saraswati* and of Lord Rama*
She with her musicians started her singing and dancing,
And kept on doing so, till the Sun rays gently kissed her face 
In the early morning hours of the next day

But on the day of Utsava, Vasava wanted to give 
The best of her before the guest King Udayan of Ujjain*
Who was visiting the kingdom of Magadh, 
On the special invitation of his King friend Suyodhan

The beautiful Court of King Suyodhan, 
Was glittering with lights shining in every corner and rows
The stage was ready to hear and to feel the touch 
Of the melodies and dance performance of the beauty Vasava

Guests both wealthiest and the general, 
Invited by the King of Magadh had come well in time 
On this splendid yearly occasion which always lingers
In the memories of its spectators, 
Through out the entire year

While seeing her performances, the rich used to throw lavishly
On their dream queen Vasava, 
Valuables and most precious gifts of gems and jewelries,
While watching their favorite Vasava or
Hearing her singing melodies, which used to thrills their hearts

Rest of the Year Vasava used to perform, 
Her dances and melodies only at her own Palatial place
Without distinguishing between the rich or the poor 
As many of her favorite artist were those 
Who were musicians, singers, writers, poet or dance lovers

Even King Suyodhan became a praiser of her unique character
Though in the beginning he too wanted to enjoy
The charms of her matchless youth, her teen age
And the wine of her intoxicating beauty, but coming close
To Vasava, he realized that she can not be persuaded for lust

As We Dance

You know you leave me breathless, as I look into your eyes.
You know you leave me restless, under the night skies.
Run away with me, take my hand and have my heart.
Now you'll see, our lives will start.
I will sweep you, off of your feet.
The night is far from through, as our gazes meet.
When we stop our dancin, the sun will rise.
I know I have a chance, as you look into my eyes.
A simple kiss, will take us above.
We can't break this, as we forever love.
I'll make your dreams, true 'til the end.
As the night sky gleams, we dance on the wind.
I can't let fear, get the best of me.
You voiceless words I hear, in our love story.
I know you're nervous, but so am I.
No one can hurt us, as we pass them by.
All night long, we'll dance and sing.
Take my hand and come along, only love you need bring.
Forget your care, for tonight we'll endlessly love.
Such passion we share, in the tale you dreamnt of.
Love can be such, a beautiful hell.
Feel my touch, and this night will end well.
We dance past our scars, past all thats painful.
You own the stars, my beautiful angel.
Let go of your ache, and let me lead the way.
I can't be awake, for it's next to heaven I lay.
My sweet princess, we'll be together tonight.
Heartbreak so senseless, we'll be alright.
It's time to celebrate, let go of the lies.
I asphyxiate, everytime I look into your eyes.
The stars shine for us, as we run so far away.
We'll forget the fuss, for sorrow's held at bay.
Misery no longer exist, since the first time we kissed.

The Dance Exotic

 The Dance Exotic
   
 
  Marvelous and exquisite
Plentiful breasts
Stunning posterior
Shaved and soft
She is glorious
Stargazing her belly dance
Sensuous movements of the hips 
Watching her belly dance
Watching her stomach
maneuver to the melody
Arching her back
Tossing her hair
She is dancing a ritual dance for me
She is dancing, prancing for me
Kissing me with her eyes
As I kiss you with mine
You are nearly through
Following you from behind
Waiting for her to follow
It didn’t take long
Grabbing a handful of your silky hair
Pulling you close to my bosom and kissing you with passion
Soft and gentle at first
Then not so soft
Sliding my tongue down your body
Taking my time at her nipples
On her belly, on her clit
Plunging my tongue into her treasure
She tasted sweet and tart all at once
I slid my fingers into her tight body
You tense as I caress your g-spot 
Nursing on your clit
I felt her body rock
Feeling her body rock
Seeing her eyes roll in passion....in pleasure
Heard her cries of X-T-C
Your body spasms
Silken ribbons of her nectar ran down my chin
I climbed her body kissing her deeply
Letting her taste herself on my tongue
She would dance for me again

VASAVA’S TEMPLE OF ART PALACE

Rulers and the most renowned riches of Patilputra 
And of the kingdom of Magadh,
Use to visit her Palace to see her splendid,
Daily dance and songs performances
While watching her splendid dance forms 
And listening her enchanting songs
They use to offer even their most precious
Money and wealth to get a glance of her

Vasava’s dwelling place was bigger than the, 
Many palatial monuments of Patilputra
Built by the master craftsmen and artisans of that era, 
For everyone’s heart beloved Vasava
Its beautiful building, long corridors and Gardens,
Filled with seasonal flowers, 
Were the best example of art and beauty, 
Displayed on grounds, walls, and high roofs 
And on the floors of her Palace 

What a splendid opportunity it was for the maker 
Of that beautiful Palatial building
To make a gorgeous place of living for the beauty queen 
Of everyone’s heart of that era
As if the Goddess of beauty had asked them,
To make a dwelling Palace for herself
Were the excellence of art and music had come alive 
To portray beauty in poetic forms & shapes

The Palace of Vasava with its gardens, 
Round dance auditorium and with sitting stairs,
Was more than a place of beauty to be watched 
It had a magical alluring attraction,
Because of its round dance stage and round sitting arrangements 
On cushioned circled stairs
To watch Vasava’s yearly performances and
Hearing her melodies floating all round in the air

Many rulers, artists, poets, actors and musicians 
From all over the world of that era
Use to come to live freely in her palatial guest house, 
To show Vasava their wonderful performances
And after judging their different dance and music forms 
Vasava used to honor and help them 
With lofty gifts, money and applauses, 
To cheer up their arts and to encourage them all

Shall we Dance---Beholding Everlasting dance Forever-together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surrounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played

The Last Dance

hold my hands and dance with the music... feel the romance and listen to my heartbeat 


Before you go to others hug 
and give to other your sweet kiss... 
can I have my last wish... 
can you give me the last piece 

As you dance sweetly with other guys... 
As my tears fall in every second 
I never mind if you have many pairs 
because to be the last is my only care 

Once you turn me your back... 
Please don't anymore go back 
because once I hold your hands again... 
I won't let it go, even the music will end

Dance of the Dead

It's been so long 
Since I saw the light
I heard that song
Once, when I was a child
The melody of the martyrs
You said.
The dance of the dead.

Now, I've been so far away
The light has scarcely hit my eyes
But I heard your voice today
And I'm waiting
For the heart in me to die
Then

I will dance eternity in your arms
I will sing your name to the world
In wonder I will succomb to your childlike charms
You are my God
And today, I am your child

In the distance I see
Stars lighting the dark
Pointing the way to the King
Your face captivates my mind
(beat beat)
My heart picks up the pace
Your knocking, I'm coming
Please, dont leave me to myself.

I brought my brokenness
And laid it at your feet
Now I stand Beautiful
In the midst of a broken world
My heart is the drum
But you are the beat
You are the music playing over in my head
And I am always yours 
Dancing the dance of the dead.

The Night You Asked

The Night You Asked


As the band plays

Your song of choice,

Tonight we dance to rejoice

The night we first met.

 

You asked for my hand

To guide me to the dance

Floor to dance and hold me

Close to you, so you

Could smell my

Long blonde hair.

 

That night you danced

With me like Fred Estaire

I blushed as I noticed

That people were starting

To stare.

 

I’m so glad your cared to

Know me, to hold my

Hand and listen to me,

To learn to love me

Without groping me.

 

Your tenderness was

Rare to me.

You had style and

Flare to me.

 

I’m so glad that

Romance in still

In the air with us

Tonight.

 

I can tell you still

Love me by the way

Your brown eyes stare

Into my blue eyes,

Just like that night

When you

First asked me if

I cared to dance.

 

I love you

and I'm so

glad that you

asked me to dance

that night long ago!

Vasava An untold Story 3/Many

Vasava
An untold story 						Part 03/Many


Description of the Vasava's Amazing Beauty - continues


Glimpse and shine of her thrilling bosoms, 
Coming during her dance forms 
Were revealing the beauty coming out 
From the thinness of her beautiful tops
Her steps were adding more beauty 
To her ever ravishing sprouting youth
Intoxicating the spectators to get lost, 
For ever in that lustrous wine of her beauty

The twisting and movements, 
Of her beautifully stretched arms
Were thrilling everyone on each steps, 
She was taking in her dance
With each new step of dance, 
She was taking out her spectator’s heart
And her songs were enchanting them, 
Only to completely get lost

On her strong and beautifully shaped 
Slender and pinkish legs
Her thin and delicate waist was thrilling 
In joy, with joyous mirth of her youth
Her body’s movements were so free 
And stress free, like an elastic
To form the enchanting dance poses, 
She could have bend her body to any extent

When Vasava used to perform her dances 
On the splendid wooden dancing floor
Her face began to glow in joy, 
Like golden rays spreads around the beautiful Sun
And watching the shine of her lovely and 
Ever glittering and shining face, 
Even the Sun found it better to hide behind
The clouds or to glow low

Such was the exuberating beauty and charms 
Of the wonder dancer Vasava
Who was the inhabitant of world’s most ancient 
Palatial city of Patilputra*
The beautiful Vasava of the era of Buddha 
Was the court dancer of the Kind of Magadh*
She was the most prestigious dweller
In the heart and minds of the people of Patilputra

Vasava - An Untold Story 5/Many

Vasava
An untold story 		                        Part 05/Many


The King and the common man, 
Both used to enjoy her dance and songs together
And the rich with pleasure use to bestowed on her, 
Their huge fabulous wealth
Which includes their money, ornaments, 
Gold and gems or their costly belongings
But she never accepted anything from those, 
who were art and music lovers, but were poor

Some of her richest fans from nearby Kashi* 
Often offer her handspun and handworked silk Sarees
While some other use to throw before her, 
The pearl or gem studded gold necklaces
There were those also, who wanted to donate 
Their entire wealth, property and money to Vasava
Only to see a close look of her charming face 
And her beautiful dancing and thrilling legs

Even her palatial servants and maid’s 
Used to get fabulous gifts from renowned visitors
When Vasava was busy in performing her weekly dances 
Or was giving  her melody singing shows
And her Palace staff considered themselves, 
So proud to be working for lady Vasava 
Who was the darling queen of everyone’s heart, 
Residing in the famous city of Patilputra
                                                                       
The uniqueness of the dancer Vasava

This unique worshiper of dance, music and art, 
Was preserving a rare beauty within herself
Devoting her life, for the cause of promoting dance 
And other forms of music and Arts
While forgetting completely and eliminating her passions
And lust from her mind and heart
Thus generating a serene natural youth, 
Which brought spark like beauty coming out from her

No one had ever touched and tasted, 
The intoxicating wine of her sparklingly refreshing youth
She had rejected the attempts of many rich 
And wealthy mans, rulers and even of the Kings
Who wanted to win her by offering her lofty gifts 
And temptations of their mighty kingdoms
Vasava never even thought to compromise,
Such was the beauty of her undaunted character


The Victory Day Celebrations


Once in a year on Vijayadesmi Day*  which generally falls,
In the month of October every year
Vasava came to give her yearly performances, 
In the court celebrations of King Subodhan

Dances With Uriel and Wormwood

I'm falling like a star Every time I touch your lips with mine When you shine your radiant light There once was a time, When I used to dream for someone Like you Lifting all the Shame just with your simple embrace, an immortal peace within my soul Resisting all melancholy that tries to enter I'm falling like a star I see you dancing with Uriel Why It does it have to be this way My heart found out When it was bearing in your chest Swim close to me Forget it ever happened Live like you're my falling star Battered down the fall has came The dance will start again It shall come when I never invited to reconcile But you stay with me Like you're my falling star Perspired into a Spiritual matter Uriel will come, my soul is what is needed To dance with him again, will ever find your heart I'm falling like a star I see you dancing with Uriel Why It does it have to be this way My heart found out When it was bearing in your chest Swim close to me Forget it ever happened Live like you're my falling star Why, did I ever have to meet such A powerful angel Why, did I ever have to see again my sins Why, did i ever have to enchant you so I'm falling like a star I see you dancing with Uriel Why It does it have to be this way My heart found out When it was bearing in your chest Swim close to me Forget it ever happened Live like you're my falling star I'm falling like a star I see you dancing with Uriel Why It does it have to be this way My heart found out When it was bearing in your chest Swim close to me Forget it ever happened Live like you're my falling star

        MY SYLPH SITS ON A STAR

Baby here’s a symphony for a sylph such as you to dance with me
Here’s some homespun harmony to walk arm and arm with me
Here’s a rhapsody to wrap your arms around me
And here’s a melody you can sing to mellow me

Baby it’s all about your feet and  the heat of the backbeat
As you cling to me and beg “honey sing to me”
The music is magic made for you and your majesty
While the tempo is a wondrously woven tapestry 

I thank God you took a chance to dance with me
And for putting your charms within my arms
Baby, it’s all about the percussion and the undeniable passion
So here’s a romantic repertoire to make of thee a star

It’s all about the heat, the beat, our feet and your beatitude
Baby this is ardor’s orchestration without an interlude
Passion, persuasion and a love that will not be prevented
So here’s a symphony for my sylph and the reason making love was invented

One Last Dance

wrapped tightly in your memory 
images softly caressing my mind
gliding to strains of the past 
on limbs that remember achingly your touch 
the essence of you imprinted on lips and loins 
lost now in this last dance 

sadness drumming a remorseful beat 
the dying notes of love fading away 
leaving emptiness to be held in arms singing softly its need 
to return once more to your sanctuary 
your body a road I travelled well
now washed away into flooding memories

my mind returns to yet another dance
our first, so different then 
held excitedly with vibrant anticipation 
of lips that strained with carnal urges 
as our bodies entwined in a single melody
that built to such a crescendo, a symphony of emotion 

yearning to recapture the passion 
leaning towards the music of your body 
its rhythmic movement, familiar and calming 
I am lost in the beating of your heart
as this dance stirs to its final chorus
my falling tears the last step in our duet

See that cloud up in the sky
dancing oh so free,
Do you think it is our Britty
dancing just for me,
See it twirl and move about
are you our baby I have to shout,
We miss you so you have to know
but that's how it had to be,
For you to dance up in the sky
we had to set you free,
We'll watch the sky for a dancing cloud
know it's you and feel so proud,
Spin and twirl dance within
until we all come to meet again.

Let's Make This True

Oh, to dance free as the moon bathes us in light Basking in God’s eternal luminary glow This is what I wish for, this evening, my darling This is my dream, I want you to know The night’s music calls out to us both, melodically As hand in hand, we traverse the glen The moon catches and highlights your natural beauty As I fall in love all over again Praying this evening to never end, Woe, if ever to end! The perfumes of flowers, such as lilacs and roses Entice us; carry us, to where we belong Wafted on breezes, there on clouds we are floating As we dance to evenings sweetest of songs Where, here in embrace, I hold you so tightly With never intention of letting go My darling, our heartbeats, regale us in unison As gently we sway, lasting and slow Basking in God’s eternal luminary glow This is my dream, I want you to know

A Love So Tragic

(pt 1) 
We seem so indifferent
Like we just don't feel
We've got cuts on our hearts
That will never heal
Beautiful as a train wreck
In that confusing way
Stuck in reverse
Living on yesterdays
We fall into the darkness
And drown in the sea
No love has ever been so tragic
As the love between you and me

(pt 2) 
Your gorgeous as you always are
So beautiful no one could believe
That you could find such beauty
In someone like me
But we paint a pretty picture
We make it look so nice
With hearts hard as stone
And eyes carved from ice
Seperated only by distance
Our beauty envied by the stars
Our story so original
The tragedy of what we are

(pt 3) 
Pick me up and carry me
Through our sweet abyss
Shroud me in your fantasy
Its not like I'll be missed
Give me all your heart
Your perfect in my imperfections
Look in the mirror and see it
That beautiful reflection
So we'll dance our way to freedom
We'll dance until we die
Forever framed in beauty
The tragedy of you and I

Dance With Me My Darlin'

I awaken to the warm rays 
That emit from the sun as it displays
A little dance through the shades 
Of early morning, I stretch slowly as a kit
Upon receiving the tender kiss, from your lips
Placed ever so gently upon mine ears
A smile as radiant as the stars in the sky greets me
I smile back in gentle protest
Knowing, what comes next
I hearken to your hearts call
With no shame at all
As you bid me to dance with you my darlin’
Through the seasons of life
We stroll to our private waterfall
A cleansing dance we share to start our day
We lie upon the sweet new grass
Allowing the sunshine to dry us at last
We breakfast on the veranda
Partaking of sweet bread and jam
A little coffee or tea, Mais Oui
The day begins so easily, as you take my hand
We listen to the rhythms of nature so grand
Singing its sweet songs of love for you and me
You hold me in your arms so tenderly
Whispering the words that seemingly tantalize me
Our hearts well up blissfully
They are entwined with one another
My Darlin’ come and dance with me

Cinderella

"Cinderella"
"Maybe you can tell me one thing.
Maybe you can tell me something.
Let me know if you love me.
Let me know if i can love you.

Tell me if your liking this.
Tell me if your liking this.
Make me see the world
that you see.

I'm drifting off in a wonderland.
Im spinning cinderella,
I'm Ally but the girl.
And I'm dancing across the dance floor,
I'm making my way to the top
of your world.
I'm making sure you can see me
through those eyes of love.

Give me your arm,
Lead me the way.
Take my hand and kiss it
Like the man I know you are.
Let me see if you can be
The one I've seen in my dreams.

Tell me if your liking this.
Tell me if your liking this.
Make me see the world
that you see.

I'm drifting off in a wonderland.
Im spinning cinderella,
I'm Ally but the girl.
And I'm dancing across the dance floor,
I'm making my way to the top
of your world.
I'm making sure you can see me
through those eyes of love.

Help me find you.
I need to find you.
Help me to see you.
I need to see you.
(oh) babe.
I wanna be your cinderella.
-----pause.

Give me your arm,
Lead me the way.
Take my hand and kiss it

I'm drifting off in a wonderland.
Im spinning cinderella
I'm Ally but the girl.
I'm dancing across the dance floor,
I'm making my way to the top
of your world.
I'm making sure you can see me
through those eyes of love."

An evening in his arms

Starring at him from across the room 
All shades of brown were in his eyes 
With my figure glowing in the moon it was no surprise he didn't notice me 
My flowing dress was catching his attention
Every waft from that warm summer night 
He wanted to read and study my native body....
Language, but wasn't bold enough
He was warming up from a cold broken heart that he suffered 
Things were heating up now 
The piano got me swaying from side to side 
I fled from my friends 
Courageously I broke out of my shell and on to the dance floor
My heels were tapping
My fingers were snapping 
To sound of the congas 
My head was nodding to the bass guitar
And my hips were moving 
Across the room he could see that I was grooving 
Temptation was setting in 
He wanted to jump up and hold my hand joining me in the solo dance 
and turned it in to a duet 
Face to face
My eye's were scanning his well structured jawline 
to his full soft lips 
to his bold light brown eyes 
to his fresh wavy cut 
He appreciated my figure enough to touch it
His hand contoured to my hips 
and we moved to the sax's sexy smooth notes
Harmonizing with the piano's light sharp melodies 
No talking was needed 
He was talking to me in a soft low tone 
Not putting me to sleep
but waking up my mind to believe that he may be the one that sweeps 
me off my feet,
 dancing on the verge of passion

The Dance Eternal

 The Dance Eternal
   
 
  Marvelous and graceful
Plentiful breasts
Beautiful posterior
Shaved soft and silky
She is beautiful
Stargazing her belly dance
Sensuous movements of the hips 
Watching her body 
Maneuvering to the melody
Arching her back
Tossing her hair
She is dancing, prancing for me
Kissing me with her eyes
As I kiss her with mine
She is nearky through
Following her to the back
Waiting for her to follow
It does not take long
I grabbed a handful of her hair...with passion
Pulling her bosom to mine french kissing her
Soft and gentle at first
Then not so soft
Sliding my tongue down her body
Taking my time at her nipples
On her belly, on her clit
Plunging my tongue into her treasure
She tasted sweet and tart all at once
Sliding my fingers into her tight body
She tensed as I caressed her g-spot 
Nursing on her clit
Feling her body rock
Seeing her eyes roll in passion....in pleasure
Hearing her cries of X-T-C
Her body spasmed
Silken ribbons of her nectar ran down my chin
Climbing her body kissing her deeply
Letting her taste herself on my tongue
She would dance for me again
The Dance Eternal

Paying the Fiddler

I was nineteen that summer
  when I met him at a buck-out,
  and I was totally smitten
  by all the Cowboy charm he had.

I thought that he was rugged,
  (and undeniably handsome),
  then that bull slammed against the fence
  and busted him up pretty bad.

I was surprised when he showed up at the dance,
  he was battered and bruised but smiling,
  and I heard him talking and laughing,
  still high from the rush of the ride.

He said “You gotta’ pay the fiddler
  if you want to dance to his tune”,
  then he drifted across the floor,
  said “Let’s dance” as he reached my side.

Mama told me I’d be sorry
  if I ignored her and took up with him,
  and I really hate to say it, 
  but I guess that she was right.

But when I review my memories
  I know I’d do it all again,
  for that “Eight Second Feeling”
  of our first long kiss that night.

We used to dance for hours,
  in the kitchen and on the porch
  and laugh about owein’ that fiddler
  and what his pay would be.

But lately there ain’t been no dancin’,
  just long strings of awkward silence,
  as his eyes look far and distant
  and not so much at me.

Seems his spirit has grown uneasy,
  as I listen to him talking
  and realize it’s still Rodeo
  that truly holds his heart.

Oh, I don’t mind coming in second,
  heck, life is like that sometimes.
  But knowing I’m invisible,
  well, that’s the hardest part.
 
I suppose I should be angry,
  but I just can’t find it in me,
  ‘cause I know what it’s like
  to love something just that way.

I felt it when I first saw him,
  in the arena and on the dance floor
  and I still feel it sometimes
  when I watch him walk away.

I’ve helped him struggle to pay the fiddler,
  and it breaks my heart to see him weary, 
  so I stand in silent acceptance,
  as I watch him pack his things.

I understand his leaving,
  I know he won’t be coming back here,
  our life together, a lesson,
  one that time always seems to bring.

I walk out past the horse pens,
  pull the gate shut…and I lock it,
  hear my mare start to nicker
  as the trailer pulls away.

I’d like to say I’ll miss him,
  his past still holds my heart.
  But we danced to the fiddler’s tune
  and the final payment came due today.

Make Believer's Paradise

Sadly, here it comes into an end
My make believers paradise.
The place I’ve conjured
After so many little years
Has met it’s bittersweet demise.
But I shall try, in all it’s glory,
To store up in my heart
And drag the magic around with me.
For there is no place I love more
Than my make believers paradise.

Others would enjoy to see
To watch love dance on their finger
To be transformed into someone else
To watch passion aromatic and linger.
To concoct their prince and wait for him
To make knew friends
And meet with them.
The music of the sweetest note
That drowns out actuality.

There are voices that sing
In my make believers paradise.
One can only hear them
If they are really there.
I dance atop the tiled floor
And hold my dried rose by the stem.
Different worlds, they come together
All language combines as one
Holding my breath, holding my books
I cannot believe that this can be done. 

If, in all fact, my time here is through
I will carry the memory,
As that is all I can do.
And deep there, swells inside,
I’ll always be there in my mind.

Special Teacher of Dance

Through the years students come and go, and time after time you teach and put on a show. 
The students dance and sing, and the audiance is proud of what they have seen. You 
remeber every name that walked through the door, and you keep above the game and people 
ask for more. Thanks for the gifts you have given us, thanks for the talent, love and 
trust. But most of all fot the loyalty year after year, your such a great person your 
such a kind dear.And remember this always, no matter what students do after they leave, 
it is what they hold close to there haert it is what they belive...that dance is not only 
an expression you show on the outside, it's a feeling and emotion you have on the inside. 
So, whatever we do after we move on just think to yourself and be strong, and know that 
we are all grateful for all that you do, and we can sincerly say "how much we all love 
you".

Untitled

Never had I experienced love like you
		Nor seen or define love as you
So intriguing yet so tender
		I don’t know where to begin
But I’m glad you’re here with me
		The moon is singing our song
And I’m here waiting for you
		Let’s dance and parade around love
Grip me tighter as I slow dance your mind away
		Move right as I reclined your hair
Move left as I spin you around
		But as dawn approaches and the mist rises
I begin to wonder where to take you after
		Shall I take you home or on the moon
I don’t know what to do
		You got me spilling my words
This love is unusual to me
		But I’m glad it’s with you

Invitation To Dance

Invitation to dance
Dance, so slowly dance
Test, touch, tease 
The toe, ball of the foot
Inviting dance floor
An invitation to dream
An invitation to dance

Come, watch,
The rhythm beat
Once – twice, repeat
From foot to leg
So gently float
Like a heartbeat
One–two
I know you
Entwined with me
A pair in step
Do glide
Supreme twist and turn
One–two, one–two

Now hear the drum, 
The cymbal beat
Beat, beat, join in 
Love’s rhythm dance
Our hormones’ vibes
Glisten in our eyes
Turned on – turned on
One–two, one-two

Our bodies bend and blend
Like lulling, repeating waves
In unison step
The beat, the move, turn,
gentle turn
Now more succinct
Now more distinct
Couples rejoice, graceful
Now getting bolder
Ra-ta-ta, ra-ta-ta
One-two, one-two

Listen, listen,
Watch, watch,
Bedazzled, amazed
The rhythm of the human race
The feel, the feet
Totally immersed
Adventurous beat
And dancing feet again

Alas, alas
The music slows
So sexy, sensual
Only the dancer knows
Slower dip, dip
And up, tip top turn
Desire, yearn
The dance of dances ends
               -

my love

i was in middle of no way
i was lost 
people were pushing me around
some tried to pass their arms around me
i was running away
then i see your eyes
i was drawn to you in a magical way
i grap you to dance with you
i look in your eyes, you smile, i smile
then everything seem perfect 
i let go with the music
dance with you
gradually i come nearer to you
you too the same
we smile and dance just like little kid
i hold you tight
we kiss passionely for hours
our body next to each other
we let go to each other
we dance sensually
we were happy in our world
my love

today i miss you a lot lot
remembering your kiss smile
miss miss miss you a lot lot lot lot?

I Can Only Dream Of This

If once more i could have the chance
To see your smile embraced in dance
Feel your lips touching mine 
A dance binding all in twine 
But i can only dream of this 
A lonely dance without its kiss  

To have the chance to hold your hand
Walk the beach in its path of sand 
To see you laughing as we walk
To hear your sweet voice as we talk
But i can only dream of this 
For my path is that of bliss

If i could only have one more chance with you
I would believe that dreams do come true 
Never again embraced in this lonely dance
If only i had just one more chance 
But we both know i can only dream of this 
You passed away now its you i miss

two worlds

 
 
The two hearts can never live in one body
Two souls can never bore one  heart
When two worlds collide they will dance around each other
Testing and pushing
As a person crossing the street sees a car driving down  the same street
One must draw back to let the other pass
And respect the boundaries of the other
So that two worlds will never collide
And diminish the broken harmony
That makes the world go round as it does
Like two dancers interpreting each others moves
So that the dance will reach perfection
Slowing down when the other slows down
Speeding up when the other speeds up
Dancing as one to move with the other person
And still move as themselves
Two worlds will never last long as one
They may last together unaware of each others existence
But they will never last as one
When two worlds collide a balance is broken
Strings are pulled
Barriers are broken and the thin line between
Good and evil
Becomes even thinner and thiner
Until it is no longer recognizable by either side
It is the curse of humanity
We are all participants in the endless triffles created
We are participants by being human
We make mistakes
We hurt eachother and ourselves
We hate
We love
We try
We ruin so much just trying to bring ourselves up
Selfish we are
Ruining all that is natural
We judge others
And we are just as bad as the next person
We judge and we judge
And sometimes
We forget who we really are
We are each and all a part of one another
Whether we realize it or not
We are all the same
And for this we must hold on to all we have that is precious
The part of us that enables us to love one another
The beating heart that allows us to put someone else first
Alone we may feel sometimes
It is alone that we are never
As long as we love
We will never be alone
It is in the nature of us all
Not just to selfishly hate one another
But to selflessly love one another

Venus Dreams /Plutos Memories

I am just your little Venus, in a Universe  
filled with Huge Bright lightning Stars,
Yet, today its me,I'm twinkling glitters,
Its not Jupiter,Not even Mars.
Here i am, your little Venus,just tonight  
not veiled with Grey thick Fluffy clouds.
Its the moment, i go on dreaming,
You're Once again, in my Whereabouts.
For Just tonight ,i am a dreamer 
of what we used to be before,
This is the night i'm dreaming ,
you came back for evermore.
Tonight is the night of dreamers.
feeling cosy in your Blooish Yellow light,
Your pale beam once again  is shining,
Gleaming in my Dusky Misty Night.
Is that You ,My Handsome Pluto,
giving me your hand ,to dance tonight?
I feel happy,very cosy,as  we dance 
in  Our Sweetest dreams of dreams,
as you hold me close, so very tight.
Is it You, or is it  Me  just dreaming,
Coming back ,for Your little Star?
Have you finished  all the journey,
circling round the earth afar?
Is it true you came to seek me?
I've been seeking for You too,
My l bright light was nearly ending,
sliding in Sunset's glow gloom,
drowning in the deepest blue.
I am just your little venus, 
mesmerised by Faries singing 
Sweetest  Softest Melodies,
Whilst the Handsome Pixies,
play  on their magic  piano,
in the  Coolest Sweetest breeze.
Is it you my Loving Moon,
still shining in the sky?
This night of dreams soon over,
What we were,is soon to die...
Just Remember Of those moments,
when in your ear, i whispered i love you,
Yes, remember of that moment,
when you promised ,Our love forever true
This night of dreaming is soon over,
this little twinkling Star soon fades,
Memories Of  My  dear Moon are paler,
Yet in my Crystal  Venus  Heart,
Still refelects Your Shades.

Loves World Cup

You have pushed me to fall in love
That’s why now I cry and you laugh
Baby please hold my hand, pull me up 
You know what? You are my love’s world cup
Baby, please sing this song, dance with me
Baby don’t kiss my ass though it’s free
Baby, please sing this song, dance with me.

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
Hear...  calling
As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As a Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night lights
Just until midnight

For when the clock strikes
Midnight.. 
Then I must leave
Quickly.. 
For I must go.. away
That way no one knows 
Whom I am

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... just a Dream


But.. I do.. 
I shall dance among the Stars
Singing Praises unto my King
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly's in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He is the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come Dance for Jesus

Dance from the Heart

A dancer's moves come from the heart
No matter what they know their part
They practice hours day after day
No matter what they find a way
Their steps are sharp
Their dance is neat
They always dance to a different beat
They look beautiful in silk and lace
And keep a smile apone their face
If they make a mistake or if they fall
They do their best and try to stand tall
A dancer's moves come from a heart
No matter what they no their part

For R E Clennon-Powell

There was a flower with a dream
Within its heart like a sun
And life was like a living stream
That kept rolling on and on
The flower grew each day brighter
And the dream steadfast yet
Like a stamen still sweeter
Golden rose, but could not set

Time grew longer and flowers fade
But a pollen sweetly holds
One dream a stigma to invade
And rise while time onward rolls
For that pollen flourished stronger
When petals shrivelling aged
And could nurse the dream no longer
Against life's sore sudden rage

Each petal knew its day was done
It could not bring still the bee
Its brighter days already run
The nectar dried, dry the tree
But pollens are dreams holding fast
To bring a seed out of gold
The way dreams hold and ever last
While lovers turn gray and old

Their dream to hold hands, dream to walk
The sea's edge kicking the sand
To climb a hill and sit and talk
Or plant and sow the rain glad land
Or like a petal drunk with joy
To dance her in the fresh wind
Holding still the promise since a boy
When ttrembling they halted sin

It was the dream that like a sun
Finally dried up all his veins
The bee to pollen dance and spun
But useless came the bright rains
It sogged him, nothing stiff stayed
When petals shrivel and falls
The flower wrinkles and we fade
And time tumbles solid walls

Only for satisfaction then
They laughed while the waning moon
To its rest sadly too descend
Dreaming bright amidst the ruin
Of love kept O too long apart
Of flowers faded in the sun
Of dreams still sweetening the heart
Of hopes past when time is done

Cheek to cheek

I don’t want to smoke this ganja’s stick

I want to hold you tight in my arms

I want to sing a song for you tonight
I want peace baby I don’t want to fight

I want to stop this painful thought’s storm
I want to dance with you with rhythm

Guardian Of Your Dreams

Upon a moonbeam I do come
To watch you as you sleep
I kiss your eyes with stardust light
To bring the sweetest dreams.
You dance and spin then take to flight
Under a moonlit night
You dance a dance with fireflies
Then hypnotize the stars.
You build great castles in the sand
Then breathe new life to waves
They crash about with passion's song
Then pound them to their graves.
And all along I stand close by
To guard with all my strength
For in your eyes I see the stars
And dream to always be.

Blissfull Loving

Soundly Sleeping with a smile
eyes there showing sweet content
comfortably screaming silent screaming
spans of time you realize 

Time like night it fades away
drifting through an open mind
thoughts of her running wild
endless sea of future joy

blissfull loving undeserved
I'm gonna find my way..Yeah
through this emotion that i feel 
I'm gonna dance with you baby

I'm gonna dance with you baby all night long
I'm gonna hold you close till the morning comes
kissing and feeling each other's eyes
hoping it will last till the end of time

Laughter finds a waking light
dancing in a sea of love
Sadness now it streams away
Years of hurt don't recall

Elated memories in our mind
talking words insatiable love
A million miles we find ourselves
gazing into an eternity

THE BALL ROOM

As i stagger twoards two obsidian doors
I hear laughter inside AND PEOPLE DANCING TO A DEAD-MANS ATIRE
They open in quentcedental appluade
Playing to borad of A quire
I feel apasied and upheld by their faces and persuaded by confiting empty 
spaces
The whole room shifts with quarling competing steps
In obsinite triumphet rythum 
Im putrid in the mOral oblagation 
 i START TO PARRY ACOSSSED THE FLOOR LIKE BLESSING FORCLOSER
SING A SONG OF THE TROUBLE MIND 
AS I CIRCLE AROUND THE THE BALL ROOM THERE ACCEPTANCE IS KIND
A WOMEN SWAYS TORWARD ME FROM THE CENTER OF THE DANCE 
FLOOR     UPLIFTS ME IN A DANCEING STEP
LEAVING THE ROOM SPILLING IN EVNY AND THE SCENT OF A ROSE IN THE 
AIR 
MY SONG PLEASED THE UPGIVING MAN WHO STANDS NEAR  
AS THE DANCE TURNS IN THE BURNING OF THE LOVES DISIRE PLOWS INTO 
MY CHEST 
HOW MUCH WOULD WOULD IT MEAN TOO HER IF I COULD TEACH WRONG

Dancing With My Father Again

(Thelbert L. Foster, Sr)

Turning on the radio
Tears spring from my eyes…
As I hear Luther soulfully, voice these words
That I have come to realize…
I shall never dance with my father again,
Oh, its like some one stole from me a prize…
A treasure irreplaceable; 
The Lord gave me just this precious one, 
Too soon~ he was taken,
My pain has just begun…
I sit alone and wonder, but know that everything 
With him is truly all right and remember all the life lessons
Taught to me… in the twinkling of an eye 
I can still see him smile, and feel the strength stretch forth
From the one whom always seemed, like a giant in my eyes… 
There in that precious moment, my spirit soars… 
I am once again a child~ and its then I truly realize...
That in my mind are the shared memories, where
I can always laugh, dance and sing with my father again…

Music Hall Funk

 Music Hall Funk
   
 
  The moon has risen
Venturing down a dark London back alley
The night is misty

In the far off distance
Hearing music
....people playing
....people singing
....people dancing

It is a music hall
down a cobblestone street
Slipping in the side door
The music overtakes me
....into a fierce dancing beat

Noticing two ladies by the bar
checking me
Playing to them and dance increasingly seductively

They are coming upon me
The dream has begun
The fantasy...Set in Place
....The dance we will make
....The future is ours is to see
....The future is ours to take

The Opening of Rusty Doors

Stop me right now if you've heard this before
there's the wind at my back and a knock at my door
there's you love me to moons but I love you much more
and we dance and we dance and we dance
Please stop me now if you know all my thoughts
as they roll on the wind in occasional bouts
as they shine in my eyes like the sun bleeding clouds
and I write and I write and I write
Stop me in summer if you're sick of the moon
for she shines less and less as the Luna de Lune
for she swells with a million hot stars in her womb
and she grieves and she grieves and she grieves
So stop me at once while the day carries on
as I open my door to the once setting sun
as the brooding of winter escapes in the dawn
and we breathe and we breathe and we breathe.

True Love

Nervous conversation,
a language between couples
destined to meet.

Knowing that their paths
had to pass a thousand times before,
anxiously meeting for the first time.

Touching like school kids again,
they tightly hold each other
as they slowly dance to the songs.

Silently he prays
that this night wouldn't end
but this night could go on and on.

Another year has gone past
and the nights do go on and on.
When I look in your eyes,
I'm still dancing to the songs.

We have shared some rough years
this I truly regret.
But my love hasn't changed a bit
since the very first time we met.

Except to have grown stronger
and to appreciate you even more.
I have grown even closer
than our times on the dance floor.

I wish I could show you
what my words just can't say.
That is how much I love you,
and how much it grows each and everyday

I Love You

OUT FROM THE HEAVENS

OUT FROM THE HEAVENS 

Came this dazzling beautiful Gem, hurtling towards me
tail aglow, streaking across the darkened sky,
bearing an energy that lit up all I could ever want to see.
Her radiance so pure, this I saw in her eye
as a desire rose up in this hardened heart, wanting to be,
with her, to know her, to feel her and fly. 

Her soft Soul, and Her warm Spirit, put reason
into the decay of this Winter's season.
Her, wonderful heart lit up the darkness,
reshaped, for me, my universe
as I watched Her, dance with the stars, 
dance with the Sun, Venus, Jupiter and Mars.
The energy She, exuded was reason to dance through all eternity
as I felt all around me shrivel, turn away, show modesty.

The full Moon's glow paled in comparison to Her beauty.
In fact, as a matter of fact, Lady Moon, turns her back on man
when ever this beautiful Gem, appeared on Her, beams of light,
brightening up the gloomy hours of this One's, long, alone night.

This cosmic Gem, radiated such warmth, gave reason, gave life,
created a joy, made it a delight to walk in Winter's, decay, rife
with unknowns, uncertainties and very little time
to sit down, compose for Her, the perfect rhyme
that could show Her, the rhythms this Solar Wind, plays
upon the shades of this Universe's, dance on rays. 

Rays, waves of light from the sun, the planets, the stars
lighting up a beautiful dance I thought could have been ours
If this old Soul, - blinded - thought, would have known
all that this brilliant Gem, offered, She, had shown.
The facets of this lovely Gem, are like a flake of Snow.
In the cold darkness of my life, I came to know

With the heat of my passion, the dawning of Another,- day
the warmth of a son, has come and melted you away.
I look upon the surface of our time and see only a water mark,
an impression of the Gem, the flake of Snow, is but a stark
reminder of the Beauty, I once touched, songs from this Lark, -
so exquisite, so angelic - I once floated among, now in the dark.

Saturday Night Live

Dedicated To Savanna

You dance before them exposed yet showing them nothing.
You make fascination of innocent fears, turned taboos to art.
You dance a dance of heaven and hell a visual trick for they're tips.

Yet it was in your conversation that brought me warmth.
It was in your honesty that made you most lovely.
It was in your heart to heart where in i lost mine
.
Love more then any tip.
Love for more then tricks.
Love of heart shown and friendship extended.

And in the end a boy became a man.
In the end a closed mind opened.
And in the end though you danced without clothes it was I who truly felt naked.

Eternal Ecstasy

As I dance with you under the star lit heavens,
I gaze into your beautiful eyes.
And what I see simply astounds me!
I see our souls entwined in a spiritual dance of love.
I see in you, the spirit of my unborn child.
An angelic pink love bubble now surrounds us two dancing lovers.
The rhythmical beating of our hearts provides the bass to the celestial music that now
resonates.
With the smiling,dancing angels surrounding us,
...I know that you are my special love!
My amazing pure spirited woman!
You,whose bright smile rivals that of the sun.
You,whose voice echoes like an angel.
You,who is imbued with the scent of a thousand perfume factories.
And you,whose beauty and radiance,no other can compare to.
And as we continue to dance,every chamber of my heart fills with golden love.
...Eternal ecstasy now dwells in my heart.

soul mates

a dim lit room, a slow and steady groove
I feel his stare on me; he watches as I move
a man of mystery, a man of intrigue
my heart races as he slowly moves towards me

one dance he wants, one dance he asks
to be close to him is not so hard a task
I’m hesitant, though, as he pulls me near
he leans in to me and whispers in my ear

‘you are so beautiful’ he says to me
‘what is your name?’ he asks anxiously
‘for I need to know before I depart
the name of the woman who’s stolen my heart’

a smile I gave him to show I was pleased
his style and his approach made me weak in the knees
‘you call me a thief and expect a reply
how bold of you, love, your request I deny’

he smiled at me as we finished our dance
‘I offer to you a night of romance
let me assure you that only good intentions remain
then will you tell me, will you give me your name?’

for the rest of the night I enjoyed his company
he seduced my mind, touched my heart; he was truly unique
‘if it’s love that u want, then you’ll no longer seek
you’ve found it in me, my name is Dominquette….’

The Dining Hall

I remember long ago, the day i fell in love with you,
before the chaos, before the judgement, before the world stole my view,
the fun house mirrors surrounded me to distort my heart away,
the lies of shapes and sizes told me everyday,
i asked where was the love in all of this? and i begged to come back home,
i closed my eyes, and in a dream i knew your answer was no,
this "why?" was a constant question, when i saw you in my dreams,
and when the lies became overwhelming, i closed my eyes to see,
we met in a beautiful banquet hall, with rose colored carpet and chandaleres,
you stood in the middle of the room and danced with me, and you shattered the mirrors of fear,
you held me in your arms as i cried out all of the pain,
and wiped my tears, and said to me, "now go back and do it all over again.."

Dance

 Now I feel alive, you make me feel so alive.
  I wish you could step inside of my heart.
 You would see how much I love you.
  You would feel how much you drive me crazy.
 Your lips they kiss me,make me feel drunk.
  Your eyes they mesmerize me.
 The way your hips move,they dance a dance and fly away.
 On a cloud we make love so sweet and I lose myself inside of you.
  I would die without your touch.
 Now I dream,rivers softly carry my thoughts.
  Running through the tree tops.
 Of clouds and flowers and morning mist
  Of peaceful slumber, a warm soft kiss.
 Dance for me my love, my mate, my true empress.
  Command me your will.
I will cover your eyes in the darkness
 Never let you see the harsh night that lies outside.
 Dance for me, our love it ties me to the the stars.
 Your kiss is bliss I would die without your touch.

Take me down

 Take down all that you are wearing.
  By that I dont mean your clothes.
 By that I do mean all that you are baring.
  I'll run with you,but will you run with me.
 
 If I wait for you I hope it's not to long.
  I hope to find you before the light is gone.
 Take back all our disaray.
  We'll go back to the fields where we used to play.
 And I'll run with you,you're such a lovely being.

 Take me down.

 Summer weighs heavy down upon me.
  I can still feel the sweat pouring down me.
 I can still taste your lips so beautiful.
  But I wonder how they are ever going to find me.
 And I dance with you,but will you dance with me.

 Take,take,take me down
   If I wait for you I hope its  not to long.
 But I hope to find you before you before this life is gone.
  Take back all of our disaray.
 And we'll go back to the fields where we use to play.
   And I'll wait for you,
     you're such a wonderful being.

A Miss Summer's Night Dream

The verve of sensation and stylish variety-
Moves deeper inside where the rage of my heart
Defines my displeasure, yet tears me apart 
To know what remains is derisive to fantasy.

And perfection is seen as exclusive not mine,
But this, unobtainable nightmare surveys
The pangs of anxiety my frustration plays;
And thwarted still further in search for divine.

As Goddess of Dance you have tip-toed or two
Performing a solo where dances and dreams,
Prepare me an ending that waking up seems
Like death as it is, and I’m losing you too.

Visiting promise to find you're not there.
Is love's great despair just a vanishing act?
It loyally behaves but I'm dying in fact 
Devoting this love to a trance anywhere. 

It absconds to a Waterford crystal mirage
As Lord of the Dance in a sequel to this,
The moment I wake isn't one I should miss 
Proposing to fit into her entourage.

Dancing with Joan Jett

Dancing with Joan Jett
Dancing close with Joan Jett is so wild, it’s 1989 and we go head to head. I’m the teen kid by the juke box and she is my wet dream in black leather, one foot in front of me. Pure bloody ecstasy. Garage music blares out of the speakers and we spin around, my arm catching her waist. Closer we draw; a kiss. First of many. 
Joan and Nick. Who would have thought it? Rock n roll music heroine meets a Lancashire lad in an intimate spit and sawdust gig venue in a nameless town. It happened, was happening now. 25 July 1989. A day before I was eighteen. 
By chance I got her gig ticket, last minute rush. Left my crap job and mental northern town and took the train to see Her, Joan Jett. My teen rock goddess singing live. How many guys wanted a piece of her? And a few gals too. Black leather, boots and an awfully short skirt...
And that black hair. Joan looked like a Goth. Her music wasn’t as dark and was more accessible. Darkness would come later, lots of it. 
For now, I danced close with Joan Jett. My head in her hair, eyes shut. Holding her like there was no tomorrow. Another kiss and I was smitten. No one would ever believe me, if I told them: ‘Hey, I danced close with Joan Jett. And we kissed...’
Never mind what happened later... that’s our secret. Yes I still do love her, am in love... 
...with Joan Jett.

Bohemian Smiles



We are dreamers in love as we tango tonight
Into worlds of a fantasy passion in dreams
In this, dance my bohemian smiles with delight
As your eyes now reflect the old silver moonbeams.
And my lady, we dance and there lies in my heart
A love-song; I am roving from place and in time
To embrace in this crazed way of poetry's art,
The pure beauty of love that is rhythm and rhyme.
If it's true that my love is a dream, can I live
As I dream? As we tango each night of romance,
Filled with love and the sensual moments forgive
A lost rover as dreams now meander through dance.
For I love as I sing and I dance with my pen
All the dreams of my heart as I love you again.

Only you

In spite of the fact I'm lonely
In spite of the fact I'm blue
In spite of the fact I'm hurting so much
I'm forever more in love with only you

In spite of the fact I'm heartbroken
In spite of the fact all with you has grown cold
In spite of the fact you're still not here
I will keep praying for you to hold

I look around and all I see
Is what keeps on remaining of you and me
Like your picture by my bed
And those memories that continue to dance inside my head
This is all to real
Yet I can't just stop how I feel

In spite of the fact I have to deal with my pain
In spite of the fact I, for you, can no longer cry
In spite of the fact I greatly miss you
I wish so much we had never said goodbye

In spite of emptiness
In spite of what I may scrafice
In spite of what I said didn't quite get through to you yet
I still will dream of being lost in your eyes

I look around and all I see
Is what keeps on remaining of you and me
Like your picture by my bed
And those memories that continue to dance inside my head
This is all to real
Yet I can't just stop how I feel

In spite of the fact I'm bleeding now
In spite of the fact my heart keeps getting drug around
In spite of the fact I'm screaming yet I make no sound
Our love still whispers so very loud

In spite of the fact to you I will keep on crawling
In spite of the fact for you I keep right on falling
In spite of the fact you can't bring yourself to call me
There's always and forever the one thing that remains ever so true
You're my heart, my life, my soul
In spite of the fact to any of this you never ask me to do
In spite of the fact upon seeing or hearing you I lose complete control
Forevermore I'm in love with only you...
...and I know somewhere inside you 
you feel it to

replete

we embrace the music and the joy of our evening dance
in the dusk that falls just before nighttime settles in
no notice do we take as the moon starts its ascent
you fill me with your love--it courses through my veins

is there a better feeling, a confection any sweeter?
your head upon my breast, listening to my heart beat
whispers in the moonlight, a dance that we repeat
a song playing over and over, of love that is replete

slumber will find me wrapped up snugly in your arms
dreams of floating on clouds--softly come upon me
you awaken me with kisses and we embrace the day
as last night history lesson is once more completed

is there a better feeling, a confection any sweeter?
your head upon my breast, listening to my heart beat
of whispers in the moonlight, of a dance that we repeat
of a song playing over and over, of love that is replete

Dance the Night Away

 Dancing the night away
 under pail moonlight
 My love dances with me
 for my love never fails
 endless my love is in me
 and never shall it fail
 Dance the night away
 Could this pain that ails
 me thou my heart is fray
 My blood
 My heart
 My mind
 My body
 I give my love all of me
 My strength of body and mind
 as mighty as a big oak tree
 How do I live in the peace of mind
 When my perception falls behind
 My heart takes lead
 And I become the tree
 Also vulnerable I have become
 How do I escape the sadness
 for breakdown
 and lapse into madness
 The world is cruel to me I think
 and despite the fact I don't drink
 My insides die and begin to stink
 I plot my end
 But the voice in side says
 you're wrong again
 The world doesn't want you
 to meet your end
 What to do In my time of need
 talk to those dearest to me
 and then the thought that somewhere
 Somebody is waiting just like me
 never the less
 Those past loves I keep a piece in my heart
 demonstraighting that I do love
 despite the cold of war
 that has crippled my heart
 My love are still there
 In the depths of my heart
 Covering it's walls like beautiful art
 And so I wait
 For the right mate
 My final love that makes me complete
 SO that I may dance on happy feet
 Hand in hand
 with my love
 and know that I will always,
 Be in love
 Dance the night away

Eloquent Movement

She walked gracefully across the moon shadowed floor
The light from the fire cast eloquent movement upon her brow
On this cold winter night, I wish to show her more
I’ll take this moment and enjoy it, as it is and shall be for now.

The light from the fire cast eloquent movement upon her brow
As I watched her almost dance to a silent, but deafening, sound
I’ll take this moment and enjoy it, as it is and shall be for now
For the room is full of love when my angel is around.

As I watched her almost dance to a silent, but deafening, sound
I couldn’t help but stare at her. I love her and am in awe.
For the room is full of love when my angel is around
She provides me all the warmth, though the night outside is raw.

I couldn’t help but stare at her. I love her and am in awe.
I’ll take this moment and enjoy it, as it is and shall be for now.
She provides me all the warmth, though the night outside is raw.
The light from the fire cast eloquent movement upon her brow.

Sizzling Salsa Step

Setting the scene
The scene of the dance
The heat and sizzle
The dusk and sun setting 
A mirage like a hot, red fire-ball
Searing into the horizon
Casting an orange hue over all the
Sun touches

The steam and sweat and passion
Climbing in the small Spanish bar,
The salsa, the tango,
Castanets clicking, the Latino feel

Her dress stuck to her tanned wet skin
The perspiration dripping from his brow,
Salt on his lips, he breathes in deeply
The tense bicep holding her lean 
back in a low dip,
His damp, black shirt billows open 
with his rapid movements,
His breath on her neck and cascading 
down her cheek
The gasp of air as he brings her back up, his 
Firm hand gently placed in the small of her back
Guiding her every step, sway, slide and stamp

The pirouettes, over and over
She’s spinning around his frame,
The heel and toe, the stamp of his feet
The whip of her brown hair as she turns to and fro,
Her soft curls tickling his bare shoulders

She flicks and kicks and jumps in his arms
Muscles tight in her legs, her thighs rigid
He twists and turns, the heels clicking on 
Acacia wood, the smell is intense
The smell of dance and Latin heat

They pull away, snap close together, she drops through
His legs, into splits on the warm floor, effortlessly, 
He lifts her with one arm, her heels on the wood
back up against a chest so broad
Breathless, she holds unto his body, his neck, his pulse throbbing
Her ankles weak, feet numb, the dance has ended
His stare intense, lungs ache, his arms around her back, 
She reaches for his hair, the music fades into silence
The dance has ended,
The passion just begun…

This Dance

May I have this dance my darling?
Dance with me on clouds of white.
My smile for you is ever growing
Because our dance is sheer delight.

May I have this dance my darling?
Our song, it plays now on the breeze.
Listen, put your head upon my chest
Place your hands for mine to squeeze.

May I have this dance my darling?
The night is ours to dance away
The mood is right, the scene serene
Come on my darling, it’s time to sway.

Waterfall

As the water flows through the rocks,
 bouncing from edge to edge,
  lights dance in the pools,
   we dance the dance of a lifetime.

We added many things
 to this waterfall we're building,
  only to discared and recollect 
   old yesterdays left behind.

I found a few frogs
 or maybe they found me,
  they seem to show-off my ugly flaws.

Then some turtles wandered in,
 just where they fit in,
  we may never  know for sure.

I hope the water never ceases to flow;
 and like the love in our hearts,
  I hope the water will
   forever flow.

Through the night

Music beats,
Our lips meet.
On the dance floor,
We share our love,
As the music leaks,
Onto city streets.

As we dance throught the night,
Our love we do not hide.
We do not care,
What people say,
For our love,
We feel no shame.

Last dance,
We hold each other tight.
Beneath the sheets,
Out bodies meet,
Our only care,
The love we share.

across a room

laser light shows reflect and glare
spaced out drunks leave right now
smoke apears from down the stairs 
avenging angles make amends

stare at you on the dance floor
stare at you and then once more
eyes of passion look of pain
i would die to know your name

you and i across a room
one with joy one in gloom
you watch me as i watch you
and yet you dance the night away
in the shadows content i stay

and so another week passes by 
another week without a smile
as i walk into our bar
i turn around and there you are

you smiled at me and asked my name
made me happy forget the pain
and so we danced the night away the week the month the whole decade
and when i look across a room i dream of you my fate my wife
i am for filled this is my life

My Lilli

She dances like a devil, 
she fills my head with sin, 
she looks and smiles suggestively, 
so let the fun begin. 

She leads across the dance floor, 
and up on pointed toes, 
she's full of flexibility, 
with the devil she tangos. 

Her red dress shows off a figure, 
to make you dial up nine nine nine, 
because my Lilli is on fire, 
and this temptress is all mine. 

A flamenco is too tacky, 
salsa is not fiery enough, 
she'll dance a dance not seen before, 
hot enough to make you blush. 

She weaves a web of mystery, 
as she twists and turns, 
if you get close and get caught up, 
you'll most definitely get burned. 

I'll try to take on my temptress, 
my Lilli, as she flows, 
if I succeed in taming her, 
then we will see just how it goes...

More to It (2004)

It isn’t just about sticking it in and out
So what’s it about?
It’s a work of art
Something that pours from the heart
Smoke only comes from a fire
It is a combination of love and desire
It’s moving like a mirror reflection
The act is that of consensual selection 
It takes practice to please
It takes skill and specialty to tease
Just imagine it as a dance 
A dance that leaves you in a trance 
The dance should finish in a simultaneous thrill
You see theres more to it then putting it in

find who ur.

I find words that dance in my head, words I let flow on this key board and on this sit,
poems?I find that hard to be, the lines the phrases are thoughts that come out of me,
words that I don't, won't, couldn't, and will not say they just are there for me to write,
no one knows, I write in the early hours of the morning that is when what is in side flows
free,
I love looking at things people don't see,love-life-loss-pain-joy-and roses oh so sweet,
merely a shell of the person I use to be,no longer looking out from behind cold eyes,
but looking from my eyes now I see,all the beauty, and what it is to be complete,
to savor a moment,touch a life time, hold eternity to spread my wings and fly,
with these words on this site I am...?
here you can't see me to judge me, I can't be heard to not be listened to, here I just write,
out loud I can't say how hurt I fill,how scared at times I am, or how I some times I need
a hand,
in poetry I find strength,courage, meaning, in poetry I find the coat I need at night,
off this site I'm some one who won't let any one in,a clown with a grin,
people believe I know not, no one knows- I've lived in hate walked in blood and lost,
soft,calm, some one who knows no better, no one sees are hears the person within,
when I lost I chose to let all my anger go,I have no hate,no remorse, I paid the cost,
stepped on walked over disrespected, but inside I'm happy...to me it doesn't matter,
I could ...?but why? all it is,is hate,love lifted me to new heights why turn back,
I will admit at times I would like to unleash the foundation of my soul he who is black,
but he's buried in pages of the words I wrote, lost in the words I scattered,
I just fill sad for those who hurt, I fill bad for those who do not see, helpless and lonely
pain turned to anger,a loss turned to hate, and love unbelievable to a scared heart,
some times you can't make it on your own, we all need to be,in life there is no only ,
just some one lost in side- if we all could see this it would be a good start,
I have no need to tell you my story to show you my wounds are my roads stains,
the past is where we look back for at times we forget how old we are,
its not how we weather the storm but how we learn to dance and sing in the rain,
hope-faith-dreams-to just believe look inside...it isn't too far.

Let's Make This True

Oh, to dance free as the moon bathes us in light
Basking in God’s eternal luminary glow
This is what I wish for, this evening, my darling
This is my dream, I want you to know

The night’s music calls out to us both, melodically
As hand in hand, we traverse the glen
The moon catches and highlights your natural beauty
As I fall in love all over again

Praying this evening to never end,
Woe, if ever to end!

The perfumes of flowers, such as lilacs and roses
Entice us; carry us, to where we belong
Wafted on breezes, as on clouds we are floating
As we dance to evenings sweetest of songs

Where, here in embrace, I hold you so tightly
With never intention of letting go
My darling, our heartbeats, regale us in unison
As gently we sway, lasting and slow

Basking in God’s eternal luminary glow
This is my dream, I want you to know
