Can you Dance with me?
Can you dance with me if no one else can?
Zumba on the shape that needs some toning
I see myself in the spell of someone’s hand
Under their command until I become strong.
In another playlist of my beautiful dream
Perched high dangling on edge in the sky,
Showing the place where I am coming from
I can see gravity fly and my world goes by.
Into sparkling mezzanine on which we dance,
Taking breathtaking leaps and stunning swings,
The intense accentuated a sparkling romance,
Into peaks streaks and cotton wool valleys.
Can you dance with me and get a little closer
Would you like to hold me until we are together?
