My thoughts have a unique rythme
inherent to my mind.
I have grown used to this beat
and rarely appreciate the beauty
it gives to my everyday life.
But it is to this pulsing of words
that I make my way in this world
dancing casually through the days.
I wonder if anyone has noticed
the slow pattern to my steps.
And will someone dance with me
in natural, unhurried movements
that flow one from the other.
A tango disguised, a waltz incognito.
And as I walk, alone with myself
I remember my silent music
and my thoughts are filled with
blurs of quick passionate dances
leaving my subconcious breathless
and with the quickened heartbeat of salsa
while I stroll, seemingly untouched
by the rythmic fantasies
engulfing my mind.
Every step, everyday with a swirl of flamenco.
My life is, in so many words
and in so many songs, A tango disguised.

That is not a bad way to describe a life. It tells the reader that you are rich in passion. That is a good thing.

Beautifully written to give us a flavor of you and your thoughts. Lovely work,

Reviewed by Amor Sabor 7/12/2006
Each step pronounces a symmetrical pattern of romance that shall never die. For this and only this does one ever really live. Beautiful
