Argentine Tango


You run through my veins like caffeine -
My greatest addiction, you bring me
A heightened awareness, you make me
Excited, I can't get enough, one more sip,
My heart races, can't sleep then I crash…


Like the rain -
Each drop a moment in time,
Together a momentous storm,
A surge of emotions like lightning -
The muse for the rhythm my heart plays
And it plays it so loudly,

Everyone knows…

When I stand on the tips of my toes
We rub our noses together,
Brush our lips like fine painters,
I can feel you down to the tips of my fingers,
Deep in the grooves, as though

You're in my fingerprints…

So every time I make a mark on this world
We'll do it together.
This is it…
