Dance of Love

I’ve posted this poem here before, more than five years ago. (Amazing! Five years!) At that time, though, other people were reading this blog... This poem has stayed with me and I often find myself singing it in my mind, or even aloud when there's no one around...

Here it is again, for your enjoyment. I hope you had a fabulous Valentine’s Day!

Fabian Perez – Tango in Paris in Black Suit

Dance of Love

Into this wild abyss
of bliss
we fall

Some say it’s love
we call it

Onto this blade of trust
we walk
we dance

You hold me tight
as we abide
by this game’s

Sweet avalanche
of blood
we seek

We fight
harsh tango of
the hearts

While in a wild abyss
of bliss
we hide

We kiss

Now that is some serious dancing. It sounds like the perfect passionate relationship.

Thank you for sharing this.

It seems as if I remember it. But I'm too young to have been reading blogs for five years. :) Great piece.

Love is always a dance on the sharp edge of the blade, but if you cut me I know you will sew me up and put a bandage on it.

My kind of love poem fo sho!

Oh la it! I'm so glad you shared this again. Tres sexy!

I have quite a few new readers now too and I do quite a few encores myself at my blogs.

Happy Weekend Vesper. Hope you'll join us for #2 prompt at Woven Dreams too!

I remember this!

I loved it then and I love it now. Especially how the rhythm scissors back and forth, only to end abruptly on that fated kiss.

Smoking hot. :) Thanks for reposting it, Vesper!

o, how we danced,
on the night we were wed...
if you think we danced -
you've got rocks in your head!
