My Verbal Ballerina

Written by: Donald Eissler

You are like a ballerina,
But never dance upon a stage
You spin and jump and twirl
With written words across my page.
. 
You make my life come alive
With the words that you say.
Make my blood run with passion,
For this you have a way.
.
Always with a verbal gesture
That leads me to your web. 
Can't seem to escape your lair
My infatuation never seems to ebb.
'
The things that you write
I feel are only for my eyes.
The way that they are written
My mind they hypnotize.
.
I am not such a fool
To think I’m the only one,
Who longs for your company
When your dance is done.
.
In my imagination
Your words only dance for me.
You have no other partner
I'm the only one, you see.
.
So please keep on dancing
With words written for my heart.
I will savor every word
Of your dancing verbal art.
