I want to dance…

I want to dance

To twirl and feel the air

Lift silken layers and guide your eager

Hands to my hips…

I want to dance

My fingers across your nape

Twine them into your curls

And tug gently till our eyes meet…

I want to dance

Attendance on your lips

To linger thigh to thigh

In a soft cocoon…

I want to dance

But we are caught

as surely as our hands between us

Or our mingled breaths…

We pull apart

You twirl me away

Chiffon floats like a cloud

I want to dance…

      4. Yes, exactly. I should have ended with I NEED to dance, because I get a little crazy without something creative in my life.

      5. When he first first appeared, he was alright but now he’s all pop and that’s not for me. My younger kid and her friends like(d) him though… I think he may have fallen out of favor with them… they change what they like daily… lol
