In your light I learn how to love
In your beauty how to make poems
You dance inside my chest where no one sees you
But sometimes I do and that sight becomes this art

This Lovely Dance


I knew that you wanted honesty...
So slight the light, I could not see
I joked and stroked and pet your head
I lie, oh my, the tears I shed
I'm smitten my kitten by words you possess
No reason for treason, remember suppress
I played and stayed a bit too long
And now, oh wow, this can't be wrong
I bleed and plead for one more chance
Don't end, my friend, this lovely dance
I knew that you wanted honesty
So slight the light, I could not see...
