He held my hand and led me to the dance floor,
Where music played and dreams were made, As whirling frantically we stayed
Within the grasp of madness there,
And danced a tango, bending low
To reach the depths of
Passions, tossed at feet that trampled Hearts and souls of promises
As mindless music played across the lives of others standing round, to see
The scenes of pornographic innocence
Displayed in all it's glory and

He held my hand and led me to the river,
Where feet of clay could wade within The roiling spumes of icy words, flung
To wound and kill a dream made long ago,
When hearts were young,
And children danced around the sun
That warmed the fingers, reaching up
To touch the face of gods unknown
Yet coveted with hungry heart Unknowingly.

Pain rose round their feet,
Unheeded and unaltered by the
Frantic music playing loud, and Capturing a moment that would ever be
A dirge of sorrow and regret.

He held my hand and led me to the dance floor,
And covered with the music played in Minor keys and sung by sirens
Clinging to the rocky shoals of treachery, I danced and played with mermaids and became A fairy tale told by a mad enchantress,
Weaving spells above my head
As worlds around my feet were made
And tossed away as tides of
Lies rolled in to take the prints
Of dreams and hope away.But still, he held my hand ...
