Dance me dizzy

I saw your gaze across the ballroom
as you teased me you enticed me
I pulled you closer as you answered
before I asked you for a dance.

Darling, darling, dance the night away
Dance me dizzy, let me kiss you
In each tango, foxtrot you’re so hot.
Thigh to thigh and cheek to cheek

When music ceases we’re still moving
with every heartbeat, spinning swirling
we are music, singing, gently moaning
you are strings and I’m your woodwind.

Dance me dizzy, let me kiss you
Come my darling, dance me dizzy.
In each tango, foxtrot you’re so hot.
Thigh to thigh and cheek to cheek

Two Dancing Old Friends by Francisco Goya

A little poem that could pass as some weird song-lyric for Susie at toads.

  1. The exhilarating exuberance in this piece, dances off the page – er … screen. Awesome!

  2. As soon as I saw the title, I heard the song by Liquid Gold and had an image of you dancing to it in gold lurex! And then I realised that you were tango-ing in the second stanza and the music in my brain changed tempo. But my favourite lines have to be:
    ‘When music ceases we’re still moving
    with every heartbeat, spinning swirling
    we are music, singing, gently moaning
    you are strings and I’m your woodwind’.

  3. I’m smiling, Bjorn. He came on pretty strong. Then I saw Goya’s title, “Old friends…”, and I smiled some more.
    ..

  4. At first I thought this was a free verse sonnet like your dVerse prompt – which I enjoyed. But seeing it was for Toads, also great work. I’m a songwriter. This would not make weird lyrics at all, but good ones. I like it, well done. 🙂
