I Will Dance to Your Tune

I’ll dance to your tune
Letting your rhythm flow through me
I’ll let your hand guide me
Your heart setting the beat

I will dance to your tune
Sometimes a slow dance
To fit your flirtatious mood
Sometimes a quickened pace
When your heart is racing
To capture the days
You were the King of the dance floor
And were adored
Recapturing the splendor
You show me off
As I twirl
Your girl
On this dance floor

Sometimes I'm held tightly
Sometimes at arm’s length
I’ll dance your dance
To the tune of your needs
Knowing you set the scene
According to your schemes
To fit your desires and dreams

I’ll dance to your tune
I will let you take the lead
Though my heart is encaged
And longing to break free
To dance to it’s own tune
To its own passionate beat
A wild musical score
That sets fire to feet
On a dance floor of desire and heat

A rhythm thunderous with longing
Booming in loudness that defies
Every other thought except...
this dance...this moment...this chance

A dance demanding fusion of bodies
Faces a mere breath away
Hearts taking turns at will
In one liquid movement of burning heat
A rapturous oneness
Rythmic frenzy
That makes everything else
In this dance hall fall away
They all stop and stare
As our dancing souls we bare

I accepted YOUR invitation to dance
YOU lead me to this dance floor
YOU held onto my hand
I will not stop dancing till you do
I will confine myself
My arms and legs obeying
My heart slowing its pace
To fit the steady beat of your own
Against my chest
My whole body in surrender
To your rhythm and pace

But oh…oh how I wish
My rhythm could light up your face
How I wish.....
I could teach you to dance...
To my tune!!!

    Been watching the Dirty Dancing movie much? :) I highly enjoyed the flow here. This actually reminds me of one of my favorite dance scenes in Addams Family Values, when Raul Julia & Angelica Huston danced so wonderfully in the restaurant. Thank you for this. :)

    OH...the BEST scene in Dirty Dancing...the dance sequence to TIME OF MY LIFE! I actually sometimes youtube it and just watch and get carried away. Patrick Swayze was one of my favorite actors...I fell for him in his role in North and South! I'm not aware of the other other scene you are referring to....Maybe I'll Youtube that one! :) Thanks for stopping by....

    HA HA! No, Lucilla, I don't know how to tango....it looks complicated...I'd be two left feet. Thanks for the visit, my dear. I haven't been well these past two days...I'll stop by for a visit soon!

    I think you may have a few adjustments to make. "Sometimes a slow dance" "Sometimes I'm held tightly" the poem itself is wonderful, you are a dancer Extrodinaire.
