A Beautiful Dance

I caught last night's performance though it wasn't meant for me Thanks to Lily, Rose and Ivy for saving me a seat Held in a private location far away from prying eyes Reservations were not taken because it was not advertised Excuse my attire, I rushed straight out the house I received the news just prior to my evening workout But like a man on a mission with a twisted ambition I snuck into position with the stealth of a magician Emotions were charged as the actors took their place Your back a perfect arch, your flexibility on display Your silhouetted arms beckoning your paramour With the welcoming charms of a true ambassador A most beautiful dance fused with fire and romance A showcased performance with a captive audience Your partner so intuned that he never missed a step Leading you across the room, your arms secured about his neck Drawn in like a magnet from my perch I watched it all Strained my eyes and neck until the final curtain call Would have shouted "Encore" but I was immobilized with shame Not eager to applaud my own embarrassment and pain Wounded ego, aching muscles regretful that I pried Sliding down a wall of stucco bruised from inside
