Get up and Dance

Spread the love

tumblr_mbglxrYpV01rgftmho1_500

The lights are out;
Loud music playing.
To the rhythm of the beat;
The body thus swaying.

Caught in a,
Trance.
Get up and,
Dance.

Listen up close;
Melodious note.
Spirit so high;
Feeling afloat.

Caught in a,
Trance.
Get up and,
Dance.

The night is young;
Wild heart pounding.
Engrossed in music;
Forgotten all surrounding.

Caught in a,
Trance.
Get up and,
Dance.

The perfect fit;
Moving as one.
Flaming romance;
Had soon begun.

Caught in a,
Trance.
Get up and,
Dance.

    I love that your wording here still carries a pulsing rhythm in the short lines conveys a bass line in the repetition of the caught in a trance stanza! Thanks for sharing this! I’m glad my prompt brought some magic to the page!!!! Viva la

    Very neat song and dance–your poem, I mean. It could be set to music, it comes from internal movement and captures it in both verse and refrain. Rhythm divine!

  5. this complete poem read as a waltz….you took the reader through the motions, complete descriptions.

    it even has a rhythm all it’s own, the words just tap dance through the readers mind!

    There’s a savage purity in this — when it’s time to get down and dance, there’s nothing left to say but Dance. Got me onto the floor.

    This poem is very much so, your style. A nice running rhyme scheme very much like a song. With your repeated verse like a chorus
