Raindrops, scented with lilac, glide down those soft brown curls,

Hazel eyes flicker to the throb of distant drums.

Sunlight peeks through your cotton dress, revealing slender curves.

You dance with ease, swaying, turning, twirling,

I slip away, lost in your love song.

Dance sweet Angelita…dance.


Songs, fueled by desire, roll off those urgent lips,

Time stops and starts as your loving gaze turns another’s way.

Waning sunlight shadows your presence, forming a pulsing silhouette.

You dance with abandon, slashing, darting, flailing,

I slip away, lost in your love song.

Dance my sweet Angelita…dance your own way.


You come to me now in dreams and sad songs,

Or by chance, on a rare day, you don’t come at all.

I sit here waiting, lost in a love song.

Dance Angelita…dance.

    desire, longing, arousal, melancholy. should I be feeling all of this when I read these words? I do

      That was once a song I wrote for my wife and the lyrics were changed to poetry once she left so I think you are dead on in your assessment. I never finished the song but I was able to put the verse to rest with this version. Thank you for reading it. It has a lot of meaning for me and brings back a lot of emotions.
