Chandelier

Spread the love

dance-genre-salsa-16-couple-holding-each-other

Across the hall a woman I see;
She played some naughty tricks on me.
Thought she was cool – thought she was fine
Must have lost my freaking mind.
Soon we danced on endlessly;
Lord what fools us mortals be.

Power to change the mind had she;
I bid the heart not fervent be.
Though eyes be closed yet I could see;
Crystal chandelier swinging free.

Like stars these chandeliers seem to be;
Hope against hope for chance to increase.
They say love is sweet – love is fine
They probably were just drunk on wine.

Her beauty was such – a dream sublime
Half forgot my thoughts and lines.
As future became present – present became past
Ignorant of what might come at last.

The maiden she flew before eyes could blink;
She lived for nothing but victuals and drink!
Mourning the amount which had been lost;
Startled how much her love had cost!

Should flee should run – oh what’s the use
Beautiful dame had me hung on noose.
They say love is sweet – love is fine
They probably were just drunk on wine.

    What a woman ~ I specially like this part:

    Beautiful dame had me hung on noose.
    They say love is sweet – love is fine
    They probably were just drunk on wine.

    Brilliant write Sanaa! You have that natural flair. And the parting here is classic! It has a closing, a punch-line in fact!

  15. Susan says:

    You almost had me feeling sorry for the poor man who was so caught up and then cut off from an unreal fantasy culture that would not exist but for consumers like him. Or was it a woman betrayed by a woman? And yet, the same comment applies, for how, why, will people insist in falling in lust instantaneously and thinking it could be love? And wine doesn’t help. Loved the refrain and rhyme.

    Hah, the rhythms here make this a fast dance, or a gallop, even! Interesting how the freaking loss of mind seems temporary at the start, but then by the end, defeat.
