Artist Notes
© 2011 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ________________________________________________________________________________ Saturday Night at The Colonnade ________________________________________________________________________________ Last night I danced and danced some more My shoes alight with girlish grace I twirled and spun across the floor A smile of freedom on my face. ________________________________________________________________________________ Not caring who my partner was My limbs as loose as limbs could be I tossed my hair back just because It felt so welcome to be me. ________________________________________________________________________________ And when the throbbing rhythm slowed A blackclad stranger claimed a turn The iridescent candles glowed He held me close enough to burn. ________________________________________________________________________________ The unfamiliar press of flesh Against my length and breadth entire Awoke the sleeping wish to mesh Myself with you within that fire. ________________________________________________________________________________ But you are far from my embrace And little likely, truth be told To turn about and clear a place To let my love for you unfold. ________________________________________________________________________________ So dance I shall with who may ask And close my eyes when in their arms, Pretending you are ‘neath the mask Entwining ‘round me all your charms. ~ © 2011 RC deWinter
