    :spinstar: The Dancer :spinstar:

    His bright shirt shines in the dim
    His skin, reflecting his shirt shows no mistakes
    Moving precise to the beat
    Showing no signs of aged-ness
    ‘This one looks blessed’…
    The curly spirals in his hair, cause people to stare
    Even the band holding it back
    Shows class and debonair
    None can match his style
    Whether tight, loose, saggy or print…he builds his profile
    He causes Girls to wait for their phones to ring
    While he becomes regulars in their dreams
    He spins and twists
    Dropping pearls of sweat on the clean slate
    Even in perspiring, the dancer looks striking
    Striking like the cords being played
    As he continues moving to the words being said
    His efforts look effortless…
    His hips keep hopping to the music
    Using Rap as his drum and R&B as his base
    You should see the look on his face,
    Nothing but joy and play reflect his display
    When he nears the end of his performance
    The dancer moves faster and faster
    A smile growing wide on his face
    He knows his audience is now in trance
    Positioning in position, he attempts one last dance
    that causes the crowd to scream and get loud
    For their blessed and striking dancer
    Dropped down
    with the emotion of a mass
    And a mass of emotions,
    Lay smooth, dead on the ground
    Looking as perfect as his moves, his soul now unfound

    Hit me back everybody...thank you much
    :D
