For A Dance

Sure I’d like to dance with you,
Hold you when you’re feeling blue
Be the centre of your gravity true,
Make you feel like it’s just us two

No bumps; I’ll make the journey most smooth
Arms like this’ll steady your roots
No demands; don’t think too much – just be calm
We’ll hold hands and be each other’s balm

I know you’re scared – but hear this;
That steady thump; the rhythm of my heartbeat,
Is it a mistake; how with yours it aligns?
Is it ‘cos we’re human, that’s why it rhymes?
No; I tell you there’s more to our design

Sometimes – we swap lips for mouths,
Mistake an embrace for a hug
Sometimes we take it too far when we should just stop

No pressure, no rush, no race against time,
No predestination; no ‘that’s the finish line’
Let’s just be us; you and me

All I’m saying is…
Let’s dance, you and I

For ‘her’.

  3. I felt this, and if I was female and into you, I’d be pinging, emailing or calling you right now to FIGHT; that line FOR HER just filtered this poem to one person. I reckon girls won’t like that very much. And HER would prolly make yanga now :d

    Nice poem. Those rhymes sire… lyrical. I hope you’re not just toasting oo… #okbye

    • Daireen;

      Thank you so much. I was inspired…it was ‘her’ and the thoughts…and the lines just came.

      Natural progression I guess. Thank you!
