Dancing With The Devil

Dancing with the devil
Like I never danced before
Doing the fiery tango
On a fire flaming floor

In the crook of his arm
Our hips pressed together
Curving me round and round
Like I'm a weightless feather

Our feet move to Milonga
While forsaken souls watch
White cheek pressed to red cheek
His breath smells of age old scotch

My foot darts between his shoes
A fancy leg twist around his calf
Capturing the heat and passion
While trying not to hysterically laugh

If I can dance to perfection
Ironically I'll get to leave
Angels give me strength 
And let my soul win reprieve

For I was meant to dance
In paradise on a white cloud
Sent to hell for dancing the tango
In Heaven only waltzes are allowed

    Greatly worded poem. Especially using Tangos and Waltzes as a metaphor for good and evil. Bravo!

Very nicely done!....You might enjoy my poem titled, "Forbidden Love"....Thank you for the sweet comments on my poem, "Serenity". It means so much to me! Glad you liked it! Hugs to you!

    Thanks for the comment. I just baked an apricot fruit pie. Never did that before. We'll see how it comes out. Hopefully the filling will not be too soggy or too dry. Pies are like fine wines. All different depending on many factors.

    I came back and read this again because of your comment. You must have inspired me to write. It is something I had been thinking about for a long time. You sound like you are very wise. Would any latin dancing at all be allowed in heaven? I don't know. I think it depends on who you talk to.

    You get a 7 on this one. A very good poem, but I don't think I'd like to dance with the devil. Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla

    This is really cute. The waltz is an amazing dance. My former dance teacher used to say, "The waltz teaches you how to dance." Dancing is a very sexy activity, and no doubt you have captured that sentiment. I often felt that if I danced with someone, it revealed what their personality was like. Alcohol and dancing tell a lot about a person. Shall I call you Ginger?
