Viennese Waltz

Whirls and flicks her pearly dress to the music of the waltz

dances merrily to ​capture fleeting moments of euphoria


glides with wings of obsession to touch the apex

taps and turns with gentle moves towards the climax


throbbing heart creates a loud but rhythmic tune

swaying souls gathering closer on the fleckerl cues


sparkling eyes mesmerise her lover by degrees

whisks and twists to tantalise her feelings madly


holds her gently to unleash the pure ardour

entwined fingers transcend impuissant into splendour


Viennese waltz as yin yang magnetises two souls

dance in the moonlight converge them as a whole
