Tequila Tango

Tequila Tango

A Poem by *Rain*

The drum beat starts,
Rhythms steady flow
Take my hand,
Dance with me,
To a new beat all our own

Tequila tango
Twist and step and turn,
Drumbeats heady
Are you ready,
To feel the liquor burn?
Dizzying dance just you and me,
Spinning round the floor,
Forget the rules of the game,
And dance with me some more

Footwork fancy,
Move with grace
Keep the rhythm strong
If you keep me in your arms,
We'll share the dance all night long

Tequila tango
Twist and step and turn,
Drumbeats heady
Are you ready,
To feel the liquor burn?
Dizzying dance just you and me,
Spinning round the floor,
Forget the rules of the game,
And dance with me some more

Hold me tight,
Pull me close,
Trade certain for chance
Let go of doubt,
Now is the time to dance...


Tequila tango
Twist and step and turn,
Drumbeats heady
Are you ready,
To feel the liquor burn?
Dizzying dance just you and me,
Spinning round the floor,
Forget the rules of the game,
And dance with me some more

In response, I say that I wrote this poem, and I know why I used the words I used. It was an "inside joke" if you will, and I used the terms "tequila" and "tango" for their alliterative purposes. If you heard the rhythm I heard in my head when writing it, you would prolly more inclined to understand. But thank you for the review, I like other opinons, both good and bad!

i liked it, not bad at all.
but,
if i may give you a word of advice...


tequila tango suggests something seductive, something charming and mysterious, like a tango, something sexy.

so, when you write, you have to describe the moment like it is. when i read your poem i didn't feel the excitement of a tango or the dimming lights or the swishing and spinning. and u said tequila...so u have to describe a moment that is affected by the numbing of alcohol...the forgetting of your senses.

you have to DESCRIBE all that for your reader to FEEL it.
