The Dance Of Love

The Dance Of Love

My beat is wild, Kaffy can’t step to this

Even the best barely hang on

This train is light-fast, raging like fire

Consuming all

In a buffet breakfast

When mystery goes so does desire,

Proteus is my love: never static,

Constant is my boredom,

Boredom is hatred-

May I not hate so may you not bore,

My dance is complex, my rock is swift

Lover be careful and watch your feet

I dance with many so bend to my will,

Blend to my feel,

My core is bare; I can’t feel the wind,

I run against it;

Do not love me, with all your heart

I won’t love you – it’s not my part

I play in dance, the fun is the start

Sway with me, dance along

It is just a play, you are just a prey

So act your part…dance with me.

  3. Okay. Had friend during NYSC, Deola who is a female. Will have to think Demola is a male since Lade is Yoruba. Thought it was actually written by a female.

    Good stuff. Guess the ladies’ll take note.

    1. Yes @Jaywriter. Demola is 100% male.

    I often don’t write with my personality in mind. I assume another persona so it’s not necessarily me…
