NEVER A TANGO (NEVER A DANCE OF TWO)

NEVER A TANGO (NEVER A DANCE OF TWO)

A Poem by CAPOLAVORO
"

A collab dance with wordman...

"
The music is set
Vinyl turning slowly
Sweet lovely tunes of honesty
Here comes the dance with one desire
Only one, desires

My body moves closely towards him
Poised, walking slowly with poise
But my heart is not his--
Started with an embrace
Now, I felt his heart rate raise

his heart rate rises
as he places his hand in mine
slowly moving with the music
as  his mind wanders back in time
with a native girl he left behind

once he fell in love
with a beautiful native girl,
as she danced, her body would twirl
taking him back to a place and time
where his love is not mine

But I want him to be mine
I want him to come back in the present
As he raises his left hand
I wrapped my arms around him
Hoping he'd smell my scent

Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow
My mind is running to and fro
Feet together, moving left to meet right
Hoping he'd fall in love with me tonight
Even if I know this aint' right

I placed my hand on his
his hand on my waist
our hips moving to the music
as hearts pounds and seeks

My body swaying
into the music beat
almost gliding, not moving his feet
my body presses into his
Desperate for his love and kiss

Now his feet together, moving right to meet left
Hoping he'd not notice my desperate breath
Repeat! as I add flare to the step
A counter-clockwise move
And a love that I need to prove

Long and Fluid strides
My heart for you cries
Swivel and turns died
As our movements lied
Only one, desires

Dancing near each other
Never with each other
I put flare on my steps
But I know I'll never have his stare
In a dance that is not fair

As I've said to wordman.. I am never good at doing romantic poems so here is the result, a one sided love.. Finally, we were able to dance in a poem.. Cheers wordman! We hope all will like it.. with love from us. ;)

Photos and words. Perfect. When we dance. We allow our body and mind to become free. Sometimes we can find love and some romance. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Well done both of you.
The writing flowed.
Sometimes it's just not meant to be.
Who said love was easy.

A unique work indeed.

"Dancing near each other
Never with each other
I put flare on my steps
But I know I'll never have his stare
In a dance that is not fair"
I love this.

I don't wanna Say anything anymore.

The strength of ANY genre is in the details. This isn't a romantic love poem, it's a sensory/sensual poem. You capture the vivid imagery using all the senses & this is the best kind of sensory/sensual writing. It's all about how it feels physically, more than whatever dumb stuff we manufacture in our heads in such situations. Great job! (((HUGS)))

You are wrong, you are amazing at romantic poems. I could envision the two dancing. The woman's emotions were written so clearly and were felt entirely whilst reading. I love your choice of words specifically when you say "Dancing NEAR each other, never WITH each other." That was a very powerful line. I love the backstory of the man as well. A great poem!
