dance with me

my heart betrays me
refusing to mask
this glorious ardor
with a gentle calm
i simply do not possess

the banal demands
of a common life
are beyond me now
when all i can think of
is ever beguiling you

you may yet find me
laughing among the stars;
take my hand, beloved
and dance with me
across the silvery face

of the adoring moon

      • Not exhibiting but proudly and publicly adoring with your heart wide open, and the rest of of are happy to be admiring bystanders, learning how to speak with a gushing golden pen upon the objects of our affection.

        You inspire us, George, and we are humbly grateful for sharing with us ~
