Dancing Should not be Hard!

The floor was swirling, the skirts were flying
Legs a flurry, never dying, but
Amidst the faces, some were crying
The pain, the sorrow, the compass borrowed
For another night of senseless pain

For the swirl may move, but the lead may not
A grip of steel helps to stir the pot
- or so they say -

For in this day and age, the lady knows
For dancing freedom, she must flow
To be whipped and beaten, pushed and shoved
Will ensure that that lady does not feel loved!

She dances quiet, not smiling loud
A frown upon the furrowed brow
Six tanda’s more, a brow unchanged
still I can see, she is not adored
The mood goes deeper, still deeper and then, she see’s a door

A door you say, with locks and keys
Will not keep this woman
The passion, the flow, the movement, all known
Not written in stone or moved by steel

Relaxing now, the dance begins

‘What is it that you look for?’ I asked again
‘For a dance where I don’t tryst in pain!
This sir, is all I ask
If you can give it to me
You may own my arse!’

Not literally I think and before I ask
‘Nay, figuratively speaking’ you say at last

The softness of within, shining through
Wanten desire
Movement begins the first breath
Apertura, a sideways shuffle
Balance, no force, not rushed or bluffed

A smile at first, then a laugh
For this was all you ever asked
To be treated well, cared and covered
Protected from unwanted knocks,
Moved in time, just down the line

A simple thing indeed it sounds
Most spend eternity but it is not yet found

But for a moment
I see it there
Amongst your stars
Beyond the glare

A moment in time
Purest of all
A single, perfect moment
Where it all comes together
Apertura, caminata, cruzada too
Boleo, free, not forced upon
Asked for and given freely

’tis the only way
To finish with a moment, a breathe
A slight delay

Rising now, the moment past
But not forgotten,
This note will last


Dancing Should not be Hard!
