Fake Your Partners

By 27th December 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

Our dreams allow life’s cares to waltz away
Relieving loneliness within the mind
Where partners in the dance by touch convey
A closeness often sought, of two entwined
To be in step with one who leads my heart
Doth add a certain frisson, deemed surreal
Electric sparks betwixt, ‘though held apart
Send shock waves of a kind one can’t conceal
When e’er your cards are marked, I’ll jump the queue
Excusing my presumptive attitude
If passing by wouldst bid a fond adieu
Missed opportune encounter to conclude
Until such time we drift off as a pair
Whilst skipping on a cloud, I’d take you there
