    Behind This Groove....
    The disco ball stops spinning and
    for once the music playing is
    silence in the key of loneliness.
    Me...
    The only one left on the floor,
    dancing by myself and to
    myself.
    No one really understands the
    acute loneliness
    that keeps filling my slot for a dance.
    Behind this Groove
    I take a twirl,
    and loneliness dips me deeply.
    My hair touches the floor and she
    kisses me on the nape of my throat,
    such sweet misery...
    And amid the dance I'm still searching for
    a brighter and free me.
    Behind this Groove,
    I'm forced to waltz to the 3/4 of reality,
    I find myself trading partners and
    now I stand face to face with
    Trials and tribulation.
    Lord have mercy,
    this man puts a move on me.
    We sidestep and electric slide all across
    a dark and murky sea.
    Face to face,
    man to demon
    he torments and caresses;
    and I struggle not to give in, but to remain suppressed.
    We dance and behind this groove
    we tango,
    I open my eyes and now I’m in the powerful grip
    of a stronghold.
    Stronghold, strong-arms me across the floor.
    Gripping my sides while we
    dance to this dissonance that pervades every bit of my
    essence.
    I say nothing.
    To those passing by, they only see my
    sun bright smile...
    an illusion eclipsed by the contusion stronghold has on
    me when we completed the fusion.
    Behind this Groove,
    I struggle daily to break away from this dance.
    To end this one-sided and compelling romance with
    stronghold whenever he looks away and I have a chance.
    Behind this Groove,
    my distraught-dipped prayers melodically float toward
    the ear of God, and
    Behind this Groove,
    to you all I smile,
    while behind the door I’m stuck in a danse macabre
    with someone who truly cramps my style.
    Behind this Groove,
    in an endless dance, I wait for the
    day that Ms. Deliverance walks through
    the door and reclaims the last
    dance.
    Then I’ll never have to dance,
    Behind this Groove.

    I'm with Blue here, the mood changed once the dance was one filled with such anguish, made me whince with it, flow on, it's your week.

    There is something about this peace...that taps into the most sensitive parts of my soul...*sigh*...That first stanza...pealed back the layers of my heart and exposed the most ultimate fear of my humanity..."You are a brilliant creative writer...."...Anyone who is capable of touching me that deeply through poetry...gets :spinstar: Unrelenting Praise from Me… :spinstar: because I like to feel...what I read...and you poet...are so good at what you do...

    Consider yourself a Blessing...to all who experience you! through poetry.

    Wonderful Peace... :bowdown:


    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
