Dancing at Midnight

All around is calm at midnight The day has been might and tight I might have lost my sight But I can still remember to cite This is my sleepless night at midnight Lies in your eyes need no witness We’re not careless, we’re not treacherous For you release the neat heat of your body I have wandered dancing a lot, I am tired Life’s a rhythm like ascertaining you’re heard Soft music’s coming from the back of the room I dream I’m a deemed a dean dancing on the moon No panic, that music sounds from a clinic Looking at her smiling at my nose I feel life before it’s fall as she knows Nightly music and dance shake the pelvic Moving closer to me, I hold her constricted For I want her to look me in the eyes To shun old behaviors of spies But make me feel the heat of an angel Who is dancing at midnight like a squirrel Poem by Mugisho N Theophile
